Attendance cannot be changed after 48 hours.

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.

No electives this year, only music if you previously had Band. Teachers may choose to do enrichment electives next quarter. This opportunity for enrichment will be for students with good academic standing in their core classes.
All athletes need to turn in a new athletic packet for the 2020-2021 school year before or during the student’s sign-up period. Athletic packets are available in the MMS Office and online at https://mms.middletownusd.org/mms-athletics
Students will now be required to have a sports physical completed and submitted at the time of the application. Any questions or concerns, please email email@example.com
Community Service forms are available in the MMS Office and online on our school’s website. Community service is not mandatory for middle school students, but we do honor those students who have completed 10 or more hours during their middle school career at 8th grade promotion. Students may not receive payment for their time, nor can their parent sign off on their form unless cleared prior by the office. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Sam in the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
