Students who will be participating in fall, winter, or spring sports will be required to pay a one time $35.00 fee per year (NOT per sport). There is a $120.00 family maximum athletic fee for the district. Your child must have a current physical card on file before they are allowed to practice. Forms will be available in the middle school office at registration.
Lunch payments made during Registration are greatly appreciated. You will find student lunch prices enclosed. Parents can also make payments online at myschoolbucks.com. Families who may be eligible for free or reduced lunch are encouraged to fill out an application form during registration. If your child received free or reduced lunch last year, your family MUST apply again as the application needs to be completed annually.
All 7th and 8th grade students will be issued a Chromebook for use at both school and at home. During registration, parents and students will have the opportunity to review the student/parent expectations, and ask any questions about the purpose and/or use of the Chromebooks in school and at home.
Please arrange for your child to take medications outside of school hours if possible. Physicians can often prescribe medications to be given before or after school. If your child MUST take ANY medication during school hours, you MUST complete and sign the medication authorization (ALL PRESCRIPTION MEDICATION REQUIRES A DOCTOR’S SIGNATURE). Prescription medication must be kept and taken in the middle school office.
7th GRADE ORIENTATION / OPEN HOUSE
On August 27th from 4:00-6:00 p.m., 7th grade students and their parents will have the opportunity to come into school early, meet their teachers, drop off their supplies in their lockers, and review their schedule. Staff will be available to answer any questions about the middle school experience. During this time, Mrs. Blochwitz will be running parent sessions. These sessions are very important for parents to attend so that they gather more information around how middle school is different from elementary school.
