Welcome to Delta Middle School

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students, August 5, 2019

Greetings from Delta Middle School, and welcome back! It gives me great pleasure to welcome all of you and your children to the 2019-2020 school year at Pike-Delta-York Middle School. This year promises to be an exciting and productive one together, as we strive to fulfill the School’s mission of providing... “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”. We look forward to working with you to promote your student’s overall well-being and academics. Some important announcements for this school year follow in this letter.

First, our late bell rings at 8:10am, as in last year. If the student is not in his or her 1st period classroom at that time they will be marked tardy. Dismissal remains at 2:55pm. Next, our policy is for you to call the school if your student will be absent that day. A hand written note must accompany the student upon return and turned into the office within one week. Third, please review student handbook located on the district website under the middle school tab, please pay special attention to the dress code.

We look forward to our partnership with you as we promote the growth of your student both socially and educationally. Please feel free to contact me personally with any questions or concerns you may have.

Yours in Education,

Douglas J. Ford, Principal

Visitor 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.
