FROM THE DESK OF MR. SWIFT

October 27, 2014

Dear Parents/Guardians:

There was a bedbug found in our school.  We are following District protocol with our Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds and custodial staff. The suspected area is isolated to only one small area of one conference room of the school that is seldom used by few students, and is being addressed. Please know that we are actively dealing with this situation and will continue to monitor, exterminate, clean, and disinfect where necessary.

OCTOBER'S CHARACTER TRAIT IS COURAGE!!!


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 2:56-3:45.

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 2:56 - 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.
