6th Grade Orientation:

Students on 6-2 Team at 5:30pm
Students on 6-1 Team at 6:30 pm
The orientation will include an introduction to staff members, expectations for the middle school, and a tour of the 6th grade wing.  

Last School Year Full Remote Students Orientation:
7th and 8th grade students who were fully remote last school year are invited to attend a welcome back orientation along with their parents/guardians. The event is for students to reacquaint themselves with the middle school, information for in-person attendance and the opportunity to ask questions. This orientation will start at:

Tuesday, September 7
Middle School Gymnasium

Chromebook Handouts:
All middle school students will be issued a Chromebook for the upcoming 2021-22 school year. The expectation will be for students to bring the Chromebooks (charged) with them to school on a daily basis. 

In order to be issued a Chromebook, parents/guardians must sign an Equipment Loan & Policy Agreement document before any student may receive one. The Equipment Loan & Policy Agreement will be mailed to parents/guardians prior to the first day of school, so they may bring them for pickup. Parents/guardians do not need to be present for students to receive their Chromebook as long as they have the Equipment Loan & Policy Agreement signed. 

Your child will receive their Chromebook on the first day of school as long as they have their device agreement signed and with them.

If you still have a school-issued Chromebook from last year you may turn it in to the main office beginning September 8.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the middle school main office at (607) 930-1012.

Respectfully, 

Daniel Erickson
Middle School Principal
