From the Principal

Davis Families,

As many of you know, Governor Whitmer signed an Executive Order that results in the closure of our physical school building for the remainder of the school year.

Throughout this time, we will continue to connect with students through Schoology and other communication platforms that classroom teachers have previously utilized.  If your son or daughter has not logged into Schoology, we ask that you reach out to first to their classroom teacher for information.  Any technical issues should be directed to Mrs. Suhy, our Media Tech, who can be reached at  


There may be a wide amount of reasons why they have not logged in to Schoology and we are sensitive to this.  Everything from needing the login/password to needing a laptop and/or internet access.  We want to be able to assist you and your child through this time. 


If you are in need of a school laptop, please contact 586.797.1116 and they will be able to assist you. 


If you need access to internet, Comcast/Xfinity is offering free internet service for the next two months to families who qualify.  For more information, please see this link: 


During Spring Break (April 6 – 10, 2020)...  
We will be honoring this time so that our students and staff can have an opportunity to recharge.  
Beginning the week of April 13th, our staff will continue to send out materials and information to support remote learning.
In addition, Please note, a change is in effect for the week of April 6 only.  Our food distribution schedule will be readjusted.  Food distribution will occur on Monday and Thursday only.  Three meals will be distributed on Monday, April 6 and four meals on Thursday, April 9 for students.  These are the only days that the food sites will be open.  Thanks to the hard work of our food service staff and volunteers, Utica Community Schools has provided nearly 120,000 meals to students. For more information, please visit  

Please continue to monitor your email for future district communication and information. 


Take care -

Mr. Shepard

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.
