Attendance cannot be changed after 48 hours. Parents must provide the note, the reason, and the excuse within 48 hours of the absence and we cannot go back in after that to change a student's attendance. The state has tightened everything up and we need to make sure our data is consistent. Parent Knowledge is no longer accepted as an excused absence by the State.


STUDENT OF THE MONTH:

Employee of the Month:


Students: You access your Infinite Campus Student Portal the same way you access your Google Classrooms! Please check below:

Parents- Middletown Middle School has gotten a grade transfer application through Infinite Campus. Grades will not be displayed in all classes for Infinite Campus until we have our grade transfer application up and running. Our IT is working on getting this going as soon as possible. Please be patient with our official grading system notification until we get this app in place. The good news is, transfering grades from Google Classroom will be easier and more efficient with this app for teachers. Please check Google Classroom for missing assignments and grades until we can transfer the information to Infinite Campus.


PARENTS: If you do not have your parent portal set up, please contact us so we can help you in that process.


REMIND APP

MUSD policy does not allow any medication to be given at school, including "over the counter" medication, without having a Physician's permission note on file.Parents should prepare for the "occasional headache, etc." by having their Student's Physician fax a note to the school if they would like the school to be able to administer medication. Notes are good for one school year.Student's are NOT allowed to carry any medication at school without permission from the School Nurse.

We will no longer be dispensing prescribed OR over the counter medications (Tylenol, ibuprofen, benadryl, etc.) without a letter signed from parents and PHYSICIAN. We can no longer call parents and get verbal over the phone permission. If a student is sick with a fever, requires benadryl for an allergy, etc. then without a physician note the student either needs to be picked up ASAP or the parent can come self administer it themselves. Each student must have their own labeled bottle in the original container that we can store in the LOCKED medicine cabinets at each site. We can no longer provide the medications at each site. The forms for medication are available in the MMS Office and at https://mms.middletownusd.org/home/nurse-s-corner

Once A Week Take A Peek-Fight back against head lice! Use proper detection comb to trap head lice.

If head lice are spotted, take a close look at all the family, including yourself, and ask close family and friends to check as well. Inform the school.

Should your child stay home?

Check your child for head lice on a weekly basis and treat straight away when live lice are found. We do have a NO NIT policy, once your child has no live lice or nits they can attend school, child care and all other activities as usual. Please take your child to the office to be checked by staff. If nits or live lice are found your child will have to return home with parent/guardian. Please check your child’s head for head lice weekly. If we all work together we can eliminate the problem quickly and prevent the spread to other students.
