April's Character Trait is FAIRNESS!


FROM THE DESK OF MR. SWIFT:

The State of New York assessments for ELA and Math will be administered April 1 - 3 in ELA and April 30 - May 2 in Math.  The testing of close to 1,000 students requires an alternate schedule. I want to ensure you have this information as soon as possible.
Please adhere to the schedule below:

ELA---April 1 - 3

Grade 6 and 7 test in the morning and will be dismissed at 11:00 a.m.
Grade 8 arrives at 11:45 and tests in the afternoon*

MATH---April 30 - May 2

Grade 6 and 7 test in the morning and will be dismissed at 11:00 a.m.
Grade 8 arrives at 11:45 and tests in the afternoon*

Students will not be dismissed before 11 a.m.

**Please see Mr. Swift's Letter for full details of the ELA and MATH Testing Schedule.

Cell Phones and IPODS

We, at PCMS, understand that Cell phones and IPOD-like devices are a very important part of the middle school students' life. With that said, they are not allowed to be used in the school building. This means before, during or after school. If it is seen in a student's hand, it will be assumed on, and then confiscated, given to the assistant principal, who will then return it to a parent or guardian. There are phones designated for each grade to use in the event a child must call a parent.


After School Detention

The middle school has a very strict lateness policy. If a child is late to school without an excuse, more than 4 times, they must serve detention from 2:51-3:45.

In the unfortunate event a student receives a discipline referral they may also be given up to three days detention. A parent will be notified by their child's administrator. 
This detention is from 2:51 - 3:45 as well.   Students are expected to complete homework at this time.

All students in the district are required to accept, sign and follow the Technology Acceptable Use Policy in order to use the technological resources offered by the Port Chester Rye Union Free School District.
