The Pike-Delta-York Middle School provides a quality education focused on the needs of youth in transition from childhood to adolescence.  A partnership exists between parents, staff, and the community to ensure the academic and personal growth of our students.

Welcome to Delta Middle School

August 7, 2023

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students, 

On behalf of myself and the Delta Middle School team I would like to welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! My name is Shawn Murphy and I am grateful to serve as your building principal.  I am excited to be a part of the Pike Delta York School community and looking forward to connecting with all of our students and parents.

Classes begin on Thursday, August 17 with your student’s first period beginning at 8:10 am and school dismissal occurring at 2:55 pm.  If you plan to keep your student home absent, our policy states that you notify our office on that day. A hand-written note must accompany the student and be turned into the office upon one week of their return.  At your convenience, please review the Student Handbook located on the district website under the Middle School tab to better understand our building policies. 

Please be sure to complete the mandatory “Returning Student Registration” by logging into the Parent Portal. You will find directions In this packet to help you complete this process. Completing the registration process is necessary before a student can pick up their schedule at Open House on August 15.

Our talented team of educators is appreciative of your cooperation and support as we partner to ensure a successful return to Delta Middle School. We will work hard to promote the very best interests of all of our students, academically, socially, and emotionally. 

All the best, 

Shawn Murphy


Additional Information

Visitors to Delta Middle School are asked to park in the front parking lot.  Do not park in spots designated/reserved for staff or handicapped without a permit.  When dropping off or picking up students you MUST use the car loop for student safety.

Car Loop Details:
Arrival: The car loop is least busy before 7:50am.  We realize the car loop is busy, but keep in mind safety is our #1 concern.

• Use the curbside lane, drive slowly, pulling up all the way.
• Avoid large gaps between cars. (Do NOT park and get out in the car loop to walk your child(ren) to the front door!)
• Only let your child exit from the passenger side.

Dismissal: Arrive after 2:45 pm to line up for dismissal.  The loop is less busy after 3:05 pm for pick up.  We realize the car loop is busy, but keep in mind safety is our #1 concern.

• Use the curbside lane, drive slowly, pulling up ALL THE WAY.  Please let your student out anywhere on the sidewalk, it doesn't need to be at the front doors.  Doing this will make the car loop be more efficient for everyone.
• Avoid large gaps between cars.  Do NOT park and get out of your vehicle in the car loop to pick up your child(ren).  
• Only let your child enter from the passenger side.

Following these steps helps reduce congestion and provides a safe/efficient pick up area.
