Attention 8th graders and their parents/guardians: your student has brought home their course requests for High School. Please sign the form and return it to Mrs. Dean in the Middle School office as soon as possible. Deadline is Friday to ensure your student's requests are in. If this is not returned back, the student will receive what classes are left over. If you have questions, email Mrs. Galvan at erika.galvan@middletownusd.org.

For ATTENDANCE, please call Teri at (707) 987-1441. Please add this number into your phone!

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.
