From the Principal

 

Davis Families, 

Utica Community Schools is in the process of revamping the district website as well as putting into place a new communication tool for phone calls, texts, and email messages to students and parents.  This change will begin to slowly happen over the next few weeks.  

I am going to begin using the new system to send out the weekly Davis newsletter starting this week as an initial test.  You should receive this message notifying you to look for another message with the weekly school newsletter attached.  A couple of things as a reminder:

  • #1 - "If you received this email from School Messenger and another email with the attached Davis newsletter for the week of November 7-11, you should be all set and do not need to do anything."
  • #2 - "If you received this email from School Messenger, but did not receive an email with the attached Davis newsletter for the week of November 7-11 (please check spam/junk before emailing), please email Mrs. Wrobel at [email protected] and let her know you did not receive the email with the newsletter attached.  We will review the reports and will work out any issues on our end to help smooth out this process over the next few weeks. "

We appreciate your assistance as we improve our overall school and district communication systems!

Mr. Shepard

Davis Junior High Student ID Policy School Year 2022-23

Thank you to all of our parents for reminding your children to wear their Davis identification badges every day!
We appreciate you partnering with us!


(All Students Must Have ID’s Visible)
Davis Junior High School continues to work to ensure the safety and security for all staff and students. This is a top priority each and every day. All students at Davis will now be required to wear and have visible their school ID badges at all times.  Students need to wear their IDs to purchase lunch or snacks.

The wearing of student IDs provides easy identification of students for teachers, substitutes, district staff personnel, and law enforcement if ever needed.  Students need to have their ID's visible when in the halls and during lunch as well as any office areas throughout the school.  To avoid leaving one at home or losing their ID's, students should get into the habit of leaving them in their lockers at the end of each day.

REPLACEMENT ID COST IS $5 if lost or damaged. 

Laptop STUDENT Use Reminder... 

Students are NOT to be using their school issued laptop for personal use. 
It is for student /school use only.  Students are not allowed to download games, extensions, add VPN's, etc., and are not to use their student email to create any accounts unless they have an authorization from a teacher.  This also helps to keep their email inbox free of clutter and spam as well as inadvertently downloading a virus.

The TEAMS chat and call features is available ONLY to reach out to teachers and staff and to be utilized during class meetings.  This is the same for all platforms/apps that act as a communication tool. Students can set up group chats but is limited to homework and school related content. This applies to Schoology messages as well as email.

Please feel free to check your student's laptops to be sure they are using the laptops accordingly.  Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding your student's laptop.
