JH School Hours

8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

Jr. High classes begin at 8:00 a.m.  Outside doors are unlocked at 7:30 a.m. Students arriving before 7:50 a.m. should go to the Commons.  Students are dismissed from the Commons at 7:50 a.m. to go to the restroom, and/or get a drink.  Students need to be in their seats for their first hour class at 8:00 a.m.  Buses arrive between 7:35 and 7:50 a.m.  

Breakfast is served  at 7:30 a.m.  Jr. High students should budget their eating time daily, so they are not late for their first hour class at 8:00 a.m.

Attendance/Passes/Bus Pass

If your child is absent from school any portion of the day, the parent/guardian must notify the school by 9:00 am.  A parent may call the office anytime before 7:30 a.m. and leave a message on the voice mail.  After 7:30 a.m., please call and speak with office personnel.

If a child is absent and no notification from the parent has been made, a reasonable effort by the school to notify the parent will be made.  A parental note is required on the next date of attendance.  This is in addition to the contact made between the parent and school on the day of the absence.   The note should be submitted to the Attendance Office or Jr. High Office before the student begins classes.  The Attendance Office or Jr. High Office will issue a pass to re-enter class.

If your child has an appointment during the school day, please send a note to school with the student.  The student should bring the note to the Jr. High office and a pass to leave class will be written.  It is very difficult to ensure a timely response if you show up unannounced requesting a student.  For example: PE classes may be hard to find so you may be late for an appointment if we are not notified in advance.  

Bus drivers try to ensure safety for all students on the bus.  Limiting numbers of riders is necessary to ensure safety.  Therefore, if a student needs a bus pass, the student must have a signed note from the parent.  We cannot accept phone calls.  A written request with the parent/guardian signature is required for a bus pass.

Sporting Events/Homecoming Parade & Game 

Jr. High students attending sporting events like Macomb High School Homecoming football game are required to sit in the Jr. High section of the bleachers.  Students need to refrain from playing football, running around, or loitering as well as using inappropriate language.  If a student does not follow these rules, they may be banned from attending sporting events for the rest of the year.

All students are welcome to watch this year's Homecoming Parade.  The parade is considered a school event. Students are expected to behave like they are in school. Inappropriate behavior at the parade can lead to not being able to attend other extra-curricular activities.
