As part of our LCAP plan attendance is as always a priority! Our goal is the have our students present 97% of the time or higher. Please continue to encourage our students to come to school, and as teachers we can continue to create engaging, creative, and tech driven lessons.

From the District
- Student safety is our main priority, if a student reports something to you that could potentially put you, the staff, or other students in danger it is your job to report it to administration immediately
- Teachers, please check your mail boxes on a daily basis
-If a student is injured in your class, send them to the nurse and make sure you contact parents the same day.
- Please make sure to check the calendar for the Weekly duties and to report to your designated area on a timely manner
- In order to limit at risk behaviors please be sure to be at your door as students are making it to class

The main focus of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is to provide a clear system for all expected behaviors at Main Street Middle School. While many faculty and students may have assumptions of what is expected behavior, we cannot assume that everyone’s beliefs are similar. Through PBIS, we will work to create and maintain a productive, safe environment in which ALL school community members have clear expectations and understandings of their role in the educational process.
Proactive Approach to School-Wide Discipline
Schools that implement school-wide systems of positive behavior support focus on taking a team-based system approach and teaching appropriate behavior to all students in the school.
Make sure you check out our new PBIS page for date updates, the handbook, videos, and resources for all things PBIS!
Next weeks focus: 3/27/17-3/31/17
Trait: Working with others
Behavior: Following the dress code
