on Wednesday, August 30th
from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Please plan on attending for the opportunity to meet teachers, receive information about classes and the school, meet other families, and tour the building. Bring your child's schedule or pick one up from the office upon arrival. We hope to see you there!
From the Office:
When your student has an appointment or needs to be released from school, please call the office ahead of time so that we can get your child out of class and have them ready for you when you arrive. You must come into the school and sign your student out with our attendance clerk. You are not required to sign your student back in upon return.
Lunch at McCormick runs from 10:41 - 11:49 a.m. each day. If you need to check your student out during this timeframe and are unable to call ahead, you may be asked to obtain a visitor badge from our receptionist and collect your student from the cafeteria or the football field outside.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to call our office.
Parent Advisory provides parents the opportunity to be involved with the McCormick Administrative team though discussions, presentations, and questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
Ciara Knepper is our McCormick representative for the LCSD1 Parent Advisory Committee (PAC). The PAC meets once a month to learn about things happening in the district that affect our schools. She represents MJHS so parents have a voice and ears for district happenings. If you have any questions or concerns, she can be reached at: email@example.com or 307-631-6641.
Information about the Nurses Office from MJHS School Nurse, Brenda Wrede....
There is a School Nurse scheduled at the Junior High and High School every day of the week. Our hours are 7:15-3:15. We encourage you to have your child seen by the School Nurse prior to deciding to pick them up from school. If I feel your child is too ill to be at school I will always call you. If there are things that I can do for your child to make it possible for them to remain in school, I will be happy to assist with that. My goal is to work with Students and their Parents to create a healthy educational environment and keep students in school.
Services I can provide for your student:
1. Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Cough Drops and TUMS are available in my office and can be given with parent permission (permission given at time of registration) until 2:00 daily. Please do not send medication (except for inhalers) to school with your student to keep in their backpack or locker.
2. Throat Cultures can be done first thing in the morning for those students who are exhibiting the signs and symptoms of strep throat.
3. I can assess your student when they are in pain or don’t feel well and then communicate my assessment to you so we can make a plan together to meet your child’s needs.
4. I will work with your child and their teachers when medical situations arise that require a change to their daily routine i.e. being on crutches due to an injury or returning to school with a concussion.
On October 20th, we had a UNITY DAY at McCormick and asked all our staff and students to wear a McCormick Junior High shirt to unite as a school against bullying.
October 25th we had a “MIX IT UP” LUNCH DAY. This is a
national campaign launched by Teaching Tolerance. It is a way for students, on
one designated day, to sit with someone new at lunch and engage them in a
positive conversation. The goal was for
students to focus on making connections across boundaries. Tutorial teachers presented a lesson with students prior to October 25th about what questions to
ask the person they met to prepare for the event. Students will now reflect on how
their conversations went in their next Olweus meeting. If you are interested in our anti-bullying rules, please visit the link under School Resources and click on Olweus Bullying Prevention.
