HANDBOOKS
           
We have a Student Daily Planner and Student Handbook.  The handbook was designed to answer many common questions asked by parents and students during the course of the school year.  Please read the handbook portion with your middle school student.  If you have questions feel free to call the middle school office at 832-6174.

            The planner is provided to help your child keep organized.  It is recommended that parents ask daily to see the planner and insist their child keep it up to date with their assignments.  To encourage the use of the planner, students are required to carry it to every class.  If your child would like to leave class (bathroom, drink, etc.) there are Hall Passes in the book that must be used.

ANNUAL END OF YEAR TRIPS
We have end of the year field trips as an incentive trip to reward good behavior.  The 8th graders will be working to attend Cedar Point on an overnight trip at the end of the year.  There will be fundraisers during the year to help the students defer the cost of the trip.  Last year the 2-day/one-night trip was approximately $175.  The students and chaperones thought it was a great trip last year at a very good price.  Check the handbook for details.

The 7th grade trip is a day trip to Michigan’s Adventure and the cost is approximately $35.

The 6th grade trip is also a day trip.  They rent AJ’s Adventure Land in Comstock Park for a day.  The cost of the 6th grade trip is approximately $25. 

 

ATTENDANCE
           
For the safety of our students parents are required to call the school @ 231- 832-6174 by 9:00 am if their child is absent.  If we do not receive a notification call by 9:00 am we will contact parents by phone in an effort to promptly locate missing students.  Calls are usually made between 9:30 and 10:00 am.  We must avoid a situation where a parent thinks his/her student is in school, the school thinks the student is at home, and the student is neither at home nor at school.

            To help us keep students safe parents must provide us with an updated phone number for us to call if their child is absent without notification.  We do not have personnel to make multiple calls so parents must provide us with one dependable phone number and keep it updated.  If the number provided is not a working number parents will not receive our phone call.  This could create a serious safety concern.
 

MEDICATIONS
Current laws do not allow students to dispense their own medication.

If your child needs to take any medication, prescription or over the counter medication, during school, a medication form must be filled out.  Prescription medication forms must be signed by a physician; for over the counter medication a physician signature is NOT necessary.  We will not dispense medications until we have the form on file
(available in the office). 

TELEPHONE USAGE 
We allow students to use the office phone for emergencies/illness only.  Using cell phones for personal use is allowed in the office only with supervision.

GETTING MESSAGES TO YOUR CHILD
            Please limit your phone calls to the office requesting us to deliver messages.  Please consider that if each child receives 3 messages per year that is 1,100 total messages and classroom interruptions.  We know there are times when you need us to deliver messages.  Please do your best to limit the number.  REQUESTS MADE AFTER 2:00 MAY NOT BE DELIVERED SO PLEASE CALL BEFORE 2:00.  Thank you for helping, we appreciate it.
 

FYI – YOUR RIGHT TO REQUEST TEACHER QUALIFICATION INFORMATION
            We are required to inform you that you have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s teacher and/or paraprofessional.  Licensing, emergency status, college degree(s) and field(s) of study, and/or other pertinent qualification information is available upon request.  This information has always been available to you at Reed City Area Public Schools.
