Student Plans for the 2021 – 2022 School Year
If your student(s) are moving or planning to not return to Davis Junior High the next school year, please send an email to Mrs. Gipson at or contact her at school at 586-797-2700. This is sometimes overlooked by parents with the activities of the end of a school year. If we know ahead of time, this can help determine our numbers and staffing needs as well as letting us know to be on the lookout for student record request forms that are sent by the new school.

We will also need to collect your child’s UCS issued laptop device/charger and we want to be prepared to facilitate this at the end of the school year. If you know your plans, please let us know so we can partner with you for a smooth transition for you and your child. Finally, if you have moved, but are still attending Davis, please let Mrs. Gipson know as well as she will need to updated address information in PowerSchool. 

Please see the following information below in regard to the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT).  

P-EBT provides supplemental food assistance benefits to students who have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the program is to make sure no child goes hungry by missing out on school meals. 

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and Michigan Department of Education (MDE) partnered during the 2019-2020 school year to provide these critical benefits to over 900,000 students. We are excited to be partnering again for the 2020-2021 school year to provide these benefits to students to help reduce food insecurity.

Eligible students must:

  • Be enrolled in a Michigan school.
  • Participate in a virtual or hybrid school schedule.
  • Be eligible for free or reduced lunch or attend a CEP school.

Students eligible for the P-EBT benefits will be notified by MDHHS directly. Please reference the attached FAQ document. Additional information is also available by calling (833) 905-0028 or at the following MDHHS website:

Parent Raider Review 

The self-screen protocols have been updated: please review this document.  Each day before you send your child to school, we ask you to take part in a "screening" process for your child.  In addition, there is a document attached below that has additional information for families. 

Respectfully yours,

Mr. Shepard  

 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 as well as any platform that acts as a communication tool.  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.
