Message from Principal Darla Jackson
For those of you who are new to Evans and as a reminder to those of you who are returning, we ask that you drop your child off in the front of the building in one of two lines, or in the Wolford Elementary back parking lot. At the front of the school, the line to the left will drop students off to be crossed by staff and then will need to turn left out of the parking lot onto Hillsdale. There will be orange cones to guide you. The line to the right will drop students at the curb, but we need you to pull forward all the way to the bike racks before stopping. You will be required to turn right as you exit the parking lot onto Hillsdale from this lane. Evans back parking lot is reserved for staff parking and busses only please, but Wolford graciously allows us to use their back lot as a third drop off point. Please be mindful the first few days as our new students will be learning where they can cross during this busy time. Please do not drop students off on Eldorado Parkway, and do not turn right into the front parking lot unless you are in the turn lane.
At the end of the day, we would also like to ask you not to pick up your students up on Hillsdale, especially on the opposite side of the road. This is a very dangerous situation as students are darting out from between parked cars. Please refrain from "parking" in the turn lane on Eldorado as well.
This will be monitored by Officer Mo, our SRO, to ensure compliance in all of these areas.
It will be hectic this first week of school, but once everyone gets the hang of it and everyone follows the proper guidelines, traffic will move swiftly and you will not be delayed.
Keeping our students safe is of our utmost concern!
We're going to have an amazing year at Evans Middle School!

Absence and Attendance Policy
We wanted to make you aware of a new MISD attendance policy that has gone into effect. In the past, for absences to be excused, a doctor's note or parent not had to be sent in within 3 days of the student returning to school. No limit was placed on the number of parent notes we accepted.
The maximum number of absences that will be excused with a parent note in the 2015-2016 school year is 8. Starting with the 9th absence, the parent notes will be kept and filed, however the absence will be UNEXCUSED unless medical documentation is received.
We are all interested in the very best education possible for our students; therefore it is imperative that each student attends school every day unless they are sick. Each absence means that valuable social and academic skills are missed.
