Also, students should always remember to report to the main office for their early dismissal at their appointed time.   We try to not call the classroom for interruptions during instructional time.

Dear PTMS Families,
Starting effective August 24th, there are procedures in place for both parents and students that need to drop off items to the middle school.
  1. Only students and staff are allowed on school premises during the course of the school day.  However, parents may leave items in the main vestibule of the building. 
  2. When dropping off an item, simply press the outside buzzer and state your reason for dropping off the item.  
  3. There will be a table with a sign-in sheet for items being dropped off.  (ex: medication for the nurse, forgotten laptop, textbooks) Please clearly label the item with your child’s name.  
  4. Lunches can be dropped off and signed in on the table in the main entrance.  However, if your child forgets their lunch, a lunch will be made available for your child in the event that they forget their lunch.
In order to limit instructional interruptions, please remind your child that we cannot call the classroom for them to retrieve their forgotten items.  Students should check for items on the table inside the main entrance.
