Title I Planning Committee Meeting

Our NEMS Title I Committee recommends upgrading the 7th grade computer lab and purchasing more document writers for Promethean boards with the remainder of our 2014-2015 Title I funds.

Suggested uses for our 2015-2016 Title I funds include keeping the same two teacher positions, web-based instructional programs, and workbooks (Coach and Buckle Down) as last year.  The Title I Committee also recommends renewing the Summer Reading Program and continuing parent activities such as the parents attending school with their children safety day last fall or special parent/student activity nights.  Another suggestion is the purchase of homework study stations with all supplies needed for students.

If you have any questions or comments about the Title I suggestions, please contact Principal Billy Burnham, 601-483-3532.

 


 Delayed Start of School Procedures 

 Parents/Guardians: 

As a school, our top responsibility is to have a safe and orderly school for all students.  We take this task very seriously.  We have procedures that are in place to ensure the safety of all students.  Sometimes these procedures are not clear to parents and visitors.  That is why I would like to take a moment to explain our Delayed Start of School Procedures. 

The decision to delay the start of school is made by the Lauderdale County School District Superintendent in conjunction with the Lauderdale County Emergency Management director.  The district office notifies the local media and will send out a recorded AlertNow message to all parents and staff.  The star time will be specified in the message.  You can expect the bus to be approximately two hours later than normal.  The buses will arrive at school and will unload.  The students will go to class.  Breakfast will not be served on days school is delayed.  Once students arrive at school the normal schedule for classes and lunch will be followed.

If you have any questions about our procedures, please feel free to contact me at 601-483-3552.

 Students must wear school approved top under their outerwear/coats.  


 Attention Parents

 We are experiencing a high volume of unexcused tardies to school in the morning. This causes a disruption to instruction when someone is entering the classroom after classes have begun.  Beginning on Monday, February 9th, students with two or more tardies to school will not be allowed to enter 1st period upon their late arrival.  The students will be directed to the in-school suspension room until the bell rings for 2nd period.  Students are considered tardy at 8:00 AM.  All students who are tardy are required to enter the main front entrance of the school.  We appreciate your assistance and understanding in our endeavor to offer a top flight education to our students.  Thank you.

SPECIAL NOTICE

Cell phones and electronic devices are not allowed on school grounds or the school bus. If a school employee asks for a student to turn over the device and the student does not comply, he/she will be considered insubordinate. There will be a discipline referral for a three day suspension and the device will be confiscated before the student can return to school. Please do not allow your child to bring a cell phone to school. We have plenty of phones on campus, 80 adults, a registered nurse, a counselor, and a police officer to handle emergency situations. We ask for your assistance in our endeavor to offer your child a school environment that is safe and conducive to learning. 

 


Check Outs

 Be prepared to show identification when checking out a student. Any person checking out a student must be listed on the student’s information card. These precautions and others are used to protect your child. 

Please make every effort to check your child out between classes to avoid interrupting instruction.  Please make every effort to schedule doctor and dental appointments after school, during summer, or on holiday breaks.  If a child is checked out for a doctor/dental appointment, he/she must return to the office the next morning with documentation from the doctor's office for the absence to be excused.  If there is no documentation from the doctor, the absence will be unexcused, and your child will be given a 0 for any work that day (tests or daily work).  If you have any questions, feel free to contact the school.
