NOTES FROM MRS. DAVIS:  

  • Remember the doors don’t open in the morning until 7:00 a.m.  Please try not to drop your student off before that or they will be waiting outside!
     

  • Please do your best to communicate with your student pick-up procedures before school starts.  If you are picking them up early, please write a note and have your student stop by the office before school.  You must come into the office to sign your student out.
     

  • Lunch money needs to be dropped off in the office first thing in the morning.  If it comes in after 9:00 a.m. it will not be entered until the next day.
     

  • Breakfast is served in the small gym in the morning!

  • With volleyball well underway; and basketball and cheer seasons coming up soon I wanted to remind you of the Junior High Weekly Eligibility Policy:

    • A student must receive passing grades in all of his/her subjects

    • Their grade must remain in good standing, and weekly eligibility will be compiled.  A grade of “F” will make a student ineligible.  

    • The following steps will be followed involving eligibility:

      1. First Offense- May not compete in any contests that week, but may practice

      2. Second Offense- May not practice or compete in any contest that week

      3. Third Offense- Athlete will be dismissed from the team.

BULLYING:  Is It Bullying?

  • When someone says or does something unintentionally hurtful and they do it once, that is RUDE

  • When someone says or does something intentionally hurtful and do it once, that is MEAN

  • When someone says or does something intentionally hurtful and they keep doing it- even when you tell them to stop or show them you are upset, that is BULLYING

  ****Please remind your students this includes things they say/post on social media****

ACTIVITY ELIGIBILITY – 

  • If your student is involved in an activity, they must be academically eligible.  Academically eligible means they must be passing all classes each week.  The following steps will be followed involving eligibility: 
    • First Offense:  the student may not compete in any contests for that week, but may practice with the team.
    • Second Offense:  the student may not practice or compete in any contest for that week.
    • Third Offense:  the student will be dismissed from the team.
    • Remember if your student is involved in a club or sport, they must be in attendance at school for at least 4 periods in order to practice or play in a game.  The absence should be excused by a note from the dentist, doctor, etc.

AGENDAS:  If your student has misplaced his or her agenda, there are extras in the office that may be purchased for $8.00.

LOCKERS - Remember to lock your lockers!  Mrs. Davis feels sad when students’ items go missing, but if you locked your locker, you would not have an issue.  This also includes your gym locker.

LEAVING CAMPUS - Students are NOT allowed to leave campus and then return to get on the bus.  Mrs. Davis is responsible for your student from the moment they leave your house until the moment they get home. For example, they are not allowed to run to Casey’s and then come back on campus. If they are hurt crossing Route 72, Mrs. Davis is responsible.  Any student that does, this will not be allowed to get on the bus.

BIRD BUCKS:  Have you earned any bird bucks?  There is always time to get caught being GREAT!  Use them in the  BIRD BUCK STORE.  Make sure your name is on them.

LIBRARY:  Remember to bring in your Box Tops to the library.  It helps us purchase items to make the MJHS library GREAT!!

COVER your coughs & sneezes with tissue or use your sleeve if no tissue is available.
