Middle School News

Friday, June 26 - Report cards will be mailed home along with a very special present from the J-D MS PTG. Eighth grade student "Moving Up Certificates" will be mailed with the report cards.    

Chromebook/Textbook/Miscellaneous materials to be returned:
Chromebooks that were lent to students are being collected June 22-25 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Jamesville DeWitt Middle School. Please return Chromebooks, along with the power adapter, during this time. No appointment is necessary. This collection is for students in all grades- not just Middle School students.  If you are bringing textbooks or other miscellaneous materials back to the middle school only, if you could put the items in a paper bag and label the bag with the student's name and what the items are, we can take care of the textbooks/miscellaneous items quickly and efficiently.  

When you arrive at the JDMS you will be directed to the bus loop.  The Chromebooks and chargers will be accepted at the main entrance.  Our tech team will ensure that your Chromebook and charger is the one you were issued and it will be set aside for disinfecting.  

Please wear a mask whenever you are within 6ft of another person and respect all social distancing guidelines.

If you cannot bring the Chromebook in on any of these days, you may arrange for an alternate date and time or for pick up service at your home. To do this, either fill out this form or call 315-445-8222.

Middle School Test Results for Lead in Potable Water
We are pleased to report that all water outlets typically used for drinking or cooking did not exceed the acceptable standard for levels of lead at J-D Middle School. Action is required if lead levels above 15 parts per billion are detected at a specific water outlet. One hundred and sixty-two (162) samples were collected at the middle school. Of those, two tested above the acceptable level: one of the sinks in the girls’ bathroom in house 2 and one of the sinks in room 101 which is a science room. Both of those outlets have been turned off.  Once fixtures are replaced, the water will again be tested to assure the water meets the acceptable standard for lead levels.
