Principal's Corner

Dear Parent or Guardian,

 

It is with great pleasure I welcome you and your child to the 2018-2019 school year.  We are honored that you chose Montezuma-Cortez Middle School, and we are excited to welcome over 60 new students to the middle school this year.  I would like to take a moment and acquaint you with some general policies that will help create a friendly culture and raise the level of academic excellence while keeping your child safe.  

 

To keep everyone in the building safe, M-CMS is a single point entry school during regular school operating hours. When checking students out, you must come to the school in person with a photo ID and use the doors at the Rotunda Entrance. Only those individuals whose names are listed in PowerSchool will be allowed to check your child out of school.  Students are not allowed off campus without an adult between the hours of 8:40 - 4:15 pm. M-CMS had new carpet installed in the classrooms over the summer and to keep it looking great there are to be no outside drinks in the building. This year students will be only be allowed to use cell phones in the lunchroom and at recess.

 

When picking up your child after school, please keep 2nd Street clear by only using the curb area for loading and unloading passengers.  If your child is not at the curb, we ask that you please drive around the block. This will help with the flow of traffic and allow for the buses to depart on time.  Thank you for all your support as we kick off the new school year.

 

Best regards,

 

Kate Ott
