This newsletter is a bi-weekly update from the South Milwaukee Middle School
Welcome Back Families
Dear Middle School Families, Welcome to the 2023-24 school year. We're off to a great start. I wanted you to know that on Tuesday at 1:25 p.m. students and staff participated in a lockdown drill. It lasted approximately 10 minutes. We are happy to say all students were responsible and followed their teachers' instructions during the drill. These practice opportunities give staff and students an opportunity to run through the procedures and make adjustments. We hope they're never needed, but it's important to be prepared. The next Standard Response Protocol drill will be held in November. Please refer to our District Family Safety Newsletter for more information about the types of situations we prepare for, and what parents can or should if one of these situations is implemented.
Rocket Reminder:  Next Wednesday, October 4th will be an early dismissal day with the school day ending at 11:55 am.
