August 11

Back to School!

I hope you have had a great summer!  I am looking forward to a great 2016-2017 school year.  Make sure you take some time to read the Middle School Student Handbook found on our home page.  Below are changes to the dress code, but make sure you refer to the full dress code included in the Student Handbook:

  • Tank tops, muscle shirts, or shirts with sleeves cut off are not to be worn. Sleeveless shirts or dresses worn by girls must measure at least 2.5 inches on the shoulder.
  • Shorts and Capri pants may be worn. The length of shorts and Capri pants must not be shorter than 3 inches from the top of the kneecap in a normal standing position.
  • Excessively tight clothing is unacceptable (i.e., spandex tights, yoga pants, shorts or other types of pants and excessively tight dresses, pants, and skirts.) Solid colored tights may be worn under dresses, skirts, and/or tops that are designed for that purpose, as long as they measure no shorter than 3 inches above the kneecap.

Students will be allowed to carry backpacks to school.

Make sure you join us for Open House, August 19 from 5:30-6:30.  There will be a brief meeting with 6th grade families in the cafeteria at 5:30.

Enjoy the last few days of summer!
