From the Principal


Davis Junior High Families,

Self-Screening Reminder and Quarantine Information We have had a great start to the school year with the return of full, in-person learning in our classrooms. It is our school’s goal and the goal of Utica Community Schools to maintain face-to-face instruction throughout the year for families who have chosen this option. I know we share this common goal and it is critical that we work in partnership through the layered approach to mitigation strategies in our schools. The self-screening process every morning is an important way to keep our students in school, particularly when it comes to quarantines for students who are identified as being in close contact to an individual who has been diagnosed as a probable or confirmed case of COVID-19, as required by the Macomb County Health Department. Our district’s quarantine information page (see link here) will continue to be updated. If your student has been placed on a quarantine, it is important that you are communicating with your teachers and sharing any questions you may have directly with them or our office.  Link for complete Covid-10 protocols.

Davis Junior High Student ID Policy (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.

Wearing of ID badges is required as part of many workplace environments, as well as post high school education, college and university campuses. Furthermore, the wearing of student IDs provides easy identification of students for teachers, substitutes, district staff personnel, and law enforcement if ever needed.
