Locating the Seventh Grade Office. We are located in the rear of the Middle School, adjacent to the New Cafeteria. If you need to drop off a forgotten lunch, or anything else for your student, please leave the items at the Main Office. Student guides will deliver the items to the seventh grade office in a timely fashion. If you have an appointment to meet with Mrs. Calabria, Mrs. Hawkins or Mr. Osborne please check in at the Main Office. You will be issued an identification tag and escorted to the appropriate office by a student guide. Please remember that security requirements are in place for the protection of our students. All seventh grade visitors must check in at the Main Office.
Using the Student Handbook. All students were issued a student handbook and planner, or "agenda". Students are urged to use this handbook for a variety of reasons. Students can keep a day-to-day list of homework, project, test, and quiz assignments in their handbook. The handbook contains a school calendar with major events listed. Important information about school activities, dress code, the merit/demerit system, and the VMS disciplinary guide are in the handbook. Lost handbooks can be replaced for a fee. Students should inquire at the school store for replacement handbooks.
Student Identification Cards. Each student is issued an ID card with photo. There are several purposes for these cards. Our cafeteria cash registers are computerized and students may establish an account by submitting a check to the cafeteria. Subsequent charges will be credited to that account, using the ID card. ID cards are required in the cafeteria, and students with merit stickers will be called first to purchase lunches. Student ID cards also serve a purpose in emergencies, and may be vital during an emergency. All students are strongly urged to carry an ID at all times. Lost ID cards can be replaced for a $5.00 fee at the student's grade level office. Occasional ID checks will be held, and students lacking an ID card may be assigned a demerit.
VMS Discipline Guide. Information on disciplinary policies and procedures is available in the handbook. Students and their parents were asked to review these policies and submit a signed statement acknowledging the rules and procedures. Questions about the discipline guide may be referred to Mrs. Calabria.
