From the Principal

Davis Parents and Students,

I wanted to take a moment and thank all of our Davis parents, students and teachers for making our first weeks back successful!  We appreciate everyone working together and look forward to the remainder of the school year.

As a reminder, Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held virtually on Thursday, February 25th, from 4 to6pm.  Similar to the fall conferences with the following reminders:  (also see page 3 of the Raider Review Newsletter)

In addition, We are excited to be taking the next steps with you toward increased in-person learning for our students.  As we have successfully welcomed back our students during hybrid learning, we continue planning for the future.   

The following information may answer questions you have at this time and additional information will be shared as we move closer to the week of March 15.  As always, please feel free to reach out to us at any time as your partnership is critical to our continued success.

  • Schedule – We will begin full days of instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday beginning the week of March 15.  We will continue to follow the block schedule and Wednesday will remain a remote learning day.  This schedule will continue through at least mid-April, when we are targeting full return to in-person learning for families who selected this option.
  • Safety Protocols – Davis Junior High School staff and students will continue to follow the health and safety guidelines outlined in the MI Return to School Roadmap, the Centers for Disease Control and the Macomb County Health Department.  This includes the use of face coverings, frequent hand washing and the use of disinfectant.  Please note that increasing the number of students for in-person instruction will have an impact on density within a classroom.  Physical distancing will continue to be maximized to the greatest extent possible.
  • Self-Screening – It is even more important that you take the time each morning to complete the self-screening process.  If your child has any symptoms or is not feeling well, do not send them to school.  This screening is for the protection of your child, their friends at school and our dedicated staff.  The screening protocols are available on our return to school information page.
  • Transportation – Bus schedules may change.  This could include additional bus stops, a change in the driver/bus number, or an adjustment to the bus pick up/drop off times. You may see more buses on the roads over the next couple of weeks as drivers conduct test runs.  Routes will be shared as they become available.
  • Food Service – Breakfast and lunches will be provided at the buildings on the full in-person days, and meals will continue to be offered free of charge through federal funding.  During remote days, food distribution sites will be established in the afternoon and early evening for families to access remote meals.  More information will be provided on the district’s food service page.

I will continue to provide you with updated schedules, protocols and specific details as we move closer to March 15 and would also encourage you to download the updated Parent Handbook at this link.

Respectfully yours,

Mr. Shepard

Prep/student support

 As a reminder... 

Students should NOT be using their school issued laptop for personal use.  The TEAMS chat and calls features are to reach out to teachers and staff and to be only utilized during class meetings.  Student can set up homework groups but it must be school related.  

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.
