Drop Off/Pick Up
We need your help to improve the safety of our school for our students in the parking lot. There are signs that read "Do Not Enter". Please adhere to these signs. We do not want any traffic coming through the parking lot lane closest to the building. Parents are asked to turn down the second row in the parking lot for student drop up and pick up. This will reduce the number of moving vehicles in the areas in which our students walk and stand in the mornings and afternoons.
Your child will receive an agenda at the beginning of the school year. The agenda is a major form of communication between the school and home. Students are expected to have their agendas with them every day. They write their homework in their agendas and have you look at it nightly. It is their hall pass and has their library bar code in it to check out books. Communications from teachers will come home in the agenda and parents may communicate with teachers using the agenda. It is a tool for organization that many middle level children need.
Students are expected to follow the guidelines set forth in the Rights & Responsibilities Handbook for dress code. Administration has final ruling on fads. Please be aware of a few of the basics when you buy school clothing. Clothes may not have any violent or inappropriate messages. This includes weapons displayed, cigarette, alcohol or drug paraphernalia. Shorts and skirts must be at least fingertip length all the way around. Shirts should not display cleavage or midriffs. Tank tops are not permitted. Pants must be worn at the waist. Please encourage your child to dress in layers. Students are not allowed to wear coats during the school day. They may wear hoodies (without the hoods on their heads while in the building) or other fleece-type jackets. If in doubt, please ask your child to take the garment to an administrator for clarification. Remind your child to take hats and other headwear off before entering the building. Students may carry their P.E. clothes in drawstring bags but may not use the drawstring bags as purses or bookbags during the school day.
Tarrant Middle School expects students to maintain good attendance in all classes. Morning announcements begins promptly at 9:00am. Students are expected to be in class prior to that time, ready to learn. We ask that you make every effort to schedule appointments for your student before or after school. If you need to pull your child out of school for an appointment, please send a note to the main office first thing in the morning. The office staff will verify the note with the parent/guardian. Students will be in the office when you arrive to pick them up. You must bring a pictured ID. Please note your child's lunch time and avoid an early dismissal during that time. Students are dismissed at 3:49pm.
