*If you have an early dismissal you are to report to the office at your dismissal time. We cannot call the classroom.

*If you are planning to walk after school, you need to have a District Walker form completed and signed by a parent. This form should be turned in to Mrs. B in the office in the morning. 

Lost & Found: The PTMS Lost & Found has many items in it, so please be sure to check the Lost and Found if you are missing any items. It is located next to the gym. Ask a custodian for assistance if the door is locked. 

*Absent Excuses need to be turned in within 3 days of the absence.

Dear PTMS Families,
Starting effective August 24th, there are new procedures in place for both parents and students that need to drop off 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. We prefer that parents no longer drop off lunches for students.  A lunch will be made available for purchase 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 in the main vestibule.
