From the Principal

Davis Families,

Welcome to the 2020 – 2021 school year! We are excited about starting the year and look forward to working together!

School officially started Tuesday, September 8 with “A” Day which is 1st, 2nd and 3rd hour for students. You can find the rotation of the A-B day for weeks 2-4 as well as the bell schedule by clicking on the link  It is also shown in the rotating banner at the top of our website. 

Students should be logged into their Schoology accounts each day by 8:20am to begin 1st hour (A day) or 4th hour (B day). Their lunch break is from 12:36-1:06pm. Information for their classes will come from their teacher with instructions for the class.

As a reminder, students will be marked absent if they are not logged into classes daily. Please call the office if your child is missing class due to illness, appointments, etc… as you would if they were attending school in person, so that it can be recorded and documented correctly.

Any student who has not picked up their device needs to call the main office at 586-797-2700 to be in attendance.

With the Board of Education's decision to start school with students in the remote environment, the district provided device will be the only school supply needed at this time. Depending on certain needs, teachers may recommend other supplies (such as colored pencils for an art class, for example). Basic supplies such as pencils, pens, loose leaf paper, etc. should also be considered for your child at home. Teachers will be sharing class information with students in the first two weeks of school online and this could also include what items are needed. 

Thank you for your patience and support!


Brian T. Shepard, Principal 

The Davis Junior High Mission is dedicated to creating a successful partnership of staff, parents and community to prepare our students to be positively-contributing members of society, and productive and responsible citizens.  We promote understanding and respect for all people and strive to inspire our students to become knowledgeable, caring, self-directed and productive learners who readily meet the challenges of a diverse world and global economy.

Students must have their ID card on them at all times during the school day.   All students will receive an ID at the beginning of each school year. 
Please click on the Raider Review tab for all information, consequences, and more  with regards to the school ID requirement.
Replacement ID's are $5 and can be purchased in the main office at Davis.
