Principal Peckham' Weekly Message

Greetings Martin Middle School families,    

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to second quarter. 

This afternoon I have some updates and reminders for you, to help you feel informed to finish out the week and prepared for next week.



Cold and flu season is upon us and stomach bugs may be going around. Please note if your child is sick with a fever we ask you to please keep them home until they are fever free for 24hours without medication to reduce the fever. If they are sick throwing up please keep them home until they are well. This will reduce the spread of illness. 

If your child calls you and or texts you while in school stating that they are sick, please advise them to tell their teacher and go to the front office. The office will be able to check for fevers and access what may be going on. This helps prevent the amount of time others are exposed.

We appreciate your assistance in helping us keep the school healthy.
