Dear Panther Parents / Guardians,
Greetings from Pike-Delta-York Middle School, where we are excited to welcome our Panthers back as we launch the 2021-2022 school year! Our staff is committed to providing every student with a safe, healthy, and happy environment by treating each Panther just as our own child or grandchild. Our theme for this school year is better together, as we’ll focus on making one another reach our potential through positive interactions. As part of that theme, we encourage your Panther to dress in their best clothes every Wednesday and dress together is spirit wear every Friday during the school year.
Students return to class on Wednesday, August 18th. We are sticking with the same bell schedule as last year, with classes starting at 8:10 AM and school dismissing at 2:55 PM. If you plan on keeping your student home absent, our policy is for you to call school that day. A hand-written note must accompany a student and be turned into the office upon one week of their return. Finally, please review the 2021-2022 Student Handbook located on the district website under the Middle School tab in order to become familiar with student dress code and other building policies.
Please be sure to complete the mandatory Returning Student Registration by logging into FinalForms. This is the district process for completing required paperwork to start the school year. Completing the registration process is required in order for a student to pick up their schedule at Open House.
Key Dates in our Pike-Delta-York Middle School Opening Week:
- August 16th: Open House, 1:00-5:00 PM
- August 18th: First Day of Classes / Device Pickup
- August 19th: Picture Day
Please note that in order for your student to pick up their device during school on August 18th, you will need to complete and submit the enclosed Technology Protection Assessment form along with the associated premium if you wish for your student to take their device home.
We have a lot of exciting programs and initiatives planned for this year that we look forward to rolling out and sharing with our students and their families. Please look for regular communications through the monthly Pawsitive Outlook bulletin and social media to stay informed.
We are grateful for your continued cooperation and support as we partner to ensure a successful year at Pike-Delta-York Middle School. We are well-aware of the commitment on the part of the family it takes to foster a successful school year for a student. Simply put, we could not do it without you! As always, we will work hard to promote the very best interests of all of our students, academically, socially, and emotionally. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me personally.
