Students and staff make up only part of the school community. Warm Springs Middle School encourages parents to become involved. All visitors are required to check in at the office and present valid identification. Those who wish to visit classrooms must have approval from the teacher and principal 24 hours prior to their visit. Minors may not visit the school during school hours.
Nutritious meals are available for purchase for breakfast and lunch in addition to ala carte items during lunch and breaks. Menus are sent home monthly and posted on-line. There are two ways to pre-pay for meals and pre-payment discounts are offered. Applications for free or reduced price lunches are available from Nutrition Services. Students who forget to pay for or bring a lunch will be provided with an alternate lunch. .
BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT/OPEN HOUSE
Parents are invited and encouraged to attend both Back-to-School Night in the fall and Open House in the spring. Students are also invited to attend Back-to-School Night where each teacher has the opportunity to meet parents and share content area curriculum and instruction. At Open House parents will see an awesome display of student work from science and social studies projects, written work in language arts, math activities, exploratory class projects and productions, and students' PE fitness progress throughout the year.
Parents are invited to meet with their child's team of teachers for those students who are working below grade level. The conference team develops a plan of action to support the student. Parents may meet with teachers at anytime about student progress throughout the year. Please contact teachers directly via phone or email.
Warm Springs utilizes two bike racks, one at the front of the school and another on the west side of campus. Both are also equipped with skateboard racks. Students who ride bicycles or skateboards must use the bike rack and supply personal locks. For everyone's safety, bicycles, skateboards and roller blades must not be ridden at anytime on campus.
DRESS CODE ENFORCEMENT
No list of dress and appearance guidelines for students can be written that will anticipate all potential dress and grooming extremes. In the case of questionable dress or grooming that is not specifically covered in the list above, the administration will make the final decision. Appropriate action will be taken at that time, and when necessary, contact will be made seeking parental cooperation and assistance.
The administration retains the sole discretion to make the final determination whether clothing, jewelry, accessories and/or appearance meet acceptable standards. All school certificated and classified personnel shall be responsible for reporting violations of this dress code. When a dress code violation occurs, the students will be required to change into proper attire. Continued violations of the dress code will be considered defiance and will be referred to administration for disciplinary action.
