New Student Times: Student day will be 7:20 a.m. - 2:15 p.m. Students are allowed in the building at 7:00 a.m.
Student Schedule Pick-up: Student schedules will be available for pick-up on August 13 and August 14th from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon. Schedules as always can be picked up at Open House on August 17th from 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Dress Code Reminders: Students are expected to read and follow the Tecumseh Middle School dress code found in the student handbook. Students will be given one warning (recorded in the Guidance Office) and then consequences will take effect.
Transportation Issues: We request your patience in dealing with bus concerns over the first week of school. Contact the Tecumseh Transportation Department at 845-4492, if you have concerns about your child’s route or bus stop. Due to most of our buses being filled to capacity as well as the addition of the shuttle buses to the elementary bus routes, we will not be able to issue bus passes for your child to ride a different bus.
Parent Drop-off/Pick-up: If you will be providing transportation to and from school for your student, please pull your vehicle to the sidewalk in front of the school. It is requested that older siblings who provide transportation are aware of this procedure to prevent possible accidents. High school students who drop off younger siblings who can not follow this procedure will be directed to their corresponding high school principal for discipline procedures.
REMIND: We will continue to communicate with families using The Education Connection automated phone service. New this year, we will also use a texting service, REMIND. Directions for REMIND can be found under the Parent Information Link under Quick Downloads.
Cafeteria: We do not expect difficulties with student lunch accounts but it might be a good idea to send your child with a couple of dollars just in case…lunch is $2.35
Athletics: Remember that physicals are required before a student can participate in middle school athletics or tryouts. Check out the Tecumseh Athletic website for more information or contact Athletic Director Craig Eier.
Together we can help make this a great school year!
Mr. Brian C. Dixon, Principal
