Need Tech Support- If you have a computer issue email your crew teacher with specific details about what is occurring. What application are you using? What error messages are you seeing?

Reminder: Monday Drop Off

Happy last day of school! Quick reminder about Monday’s drop off:

The following school property can be dropped off on Monday, June 15th from 9:00am-12:00pm. Please go to the front door of the middle school, ring the bell, and wait for someone to come to the door. Please wait for a teacher to come to the door to receive your items.  Students and parents will not be able to enter the building at this time.

  • The Lightning Thief book/Class Library books – many students took home books from our class library or have books they’d like to donate to our class library. Most of our books are labeled EXP, Exploris, EMS 6th, Kent, Loren Kent, Rose, etc.
  • Laptops – If your child is returning to Exploris next year and wants to continue using our chromebook over the summer for educational purposes, they may hold on to it. Know that you are financially responsible for any damage to the laptop found upon return. If you don’t want to assume that liability or want to return it for any reason, these can also be dropped off. 
  • You may pick up your yearbook if you haven’t yet!
