From the Principal


Davis Families,

As we transition into the month of November and the return of students to in-person learning, please click on and read the following letters in regards to in-person which contains important health and safety protocols, self screening, cohort groups by alphabet, school calendar on return days for each cohort, and remote day information.  
Return to School Hybrid Parent Letter 
COVD Self Screening Process  

I would like to thank our students, parents and teachers for making remote learning a positive experience.  I continue to be impressed with the ability to learn the many platforms we use on a daily basis from submitting assignments in Schoology, to OneNote/OneDrive, to accessing content in Big Ideas and TCI and everything in between.  We remain committed to continue partnering and assisting our families during this time to help all students be successful.

(If you are NOT receiving the letter above via email, please contact the Davis main office).    

Any additional updates will be communicated to your through School Messenger and will contain the subject line, “Parent Information”. 

Thank you for your patience and support!

Mr. Shepard, Davis Jr. High Principal

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT REMINDERS:

The Microsoft Licensing Issue affects nearly all of the student laptops and can only be solved by going to the closest UCS school and connecting to the district's wifi, Reach Higher network.  The students can follow the directions posted in Schoology or sent via email by their teachers.  We know this is inconvenient, however, this must be done so the student can edit their documents accordingly. Click here for the instructions Microsoft Licensing Issue 

Students will be marked absent if they are not logged into classes daily at the start of the hours. 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.

Online Student Behavior:  Discipline will be facilitated the same as face to face instruction. Any behaviors that would be referred to the front office in face to face instruction will also be referred to the office while teaching in a virtual environment. Students can be suspended and removed from online learning just as they would be suspended in a face to face environment. Students who are interrupting, or a disturbance to others, can be removed from class by a teacher immediately.

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.
