Dear Middle School Families,

I hope this email finds you well, and having an enjoyable summer.  As we plan for the opening of the school year, I would like to share some important dates with you. 

Open House Orientation for the incoming 7th graders will be on Wednesday, August 31, from 4:30-6:30 pm.  This is a great time for the students to be able to walk around with their schedules to see where their classrooms are and to have a chance to meet their teachers and to ask questions. All student schedules will be available through the student/parent portal on August 29; transportation information will be available there, as well.

The first day of school is Wednesday, September 7.  Breakfast is always available beginning at 7:25; period 1 begins at 7:40. The busses will drop off students in the front of the building.  If you are driving your student to school (and/or picking up), please use the west end entrance (near the tennis courts). 

Modified sports will begin on Thursday, September 8.  Our athletic director emailed a letter a few weeks ago with all the information for registering for sports.  If you would like more information about modified sports, please call the Athletic Office at 657-2373, extension 2101. 

An important change this year for both students and parents involves cell phone use.  The middle school is reverting back to our pre-pandemic practice of not allowing cell phone use during the school day.  Instead, we will continue to focus on other healthy and appropriate ways to socialize within our community.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!  We are looking forward to a great year. 

Sincerely,

Jennifer O'Connor
