We have been closely monitoring the status of Hurricane Michael and its potential to impact our community. In a pre-landfall emergency declaration, the Governor has closed government offices in our county on Wednesday and Thursday. Based on the direction received from the Governor's office, we are closing schools in the Baker County Public School District on Wednesday, October 10th and Thursday, October 11th. We anticipate beginning classes again on Friday, October 12th at our regularly scheduled times.
Please continue to monitor this event carefully and take the necessary measures to provide for the safety of you and your family. We will continue to communicate with you as we receive more information. Macclenny Elementary will open as an emergency shelter tonight at 6:00 p.m.
Parents may have received a permission slip for an upcoming school-based flu clinic where students could receive an intranasal flu vaccination (also known as flu mist) during school hours. Unfortunately, due to a shortage in supply of the flu mist vaccine, we will not be able to conduct this event as planned. However, it is of upmost importance that children be protected from the flu virus during the upcoming flu season. For this reason, parents are strongly encouraged to take their children to their primary care provider or the Baker County Health Department to receive the traditional flu shot as soon as possible. Children should also be encouraged to wash hands frequently, including before and after using the restroom or eating and any time they cough or sneeze, to help prevent spread of the flu.
Students received a parent consent form related to receiving a flu mist vaccination. If you would like for your student to receive the free flu mist vaccination, please have your student return the signed consent form to BCMS by Friday, October 5th. If you have any questions or concerns related to this free opportunity, please contact our school nurse at (904) 259-2226.
Boys' basketball conditioning will begin on Monday, September 24th from 2:10 - 4:00. Students should meet in the locker room and must have an up-to-date FHSAA physical on file in order to participate. If you have any questions, please contact Coach Finley.
As a reminder, students must be accompanied by a parent or adult in order to attend middle school and high school football games. Thank you for your cooperation.
This is to inform you we will be conducting safety and security drills throughout the school year. As with all other safety drills we have conducted over the years, it will involve the movement of students across our campus. They will be under the direct supervision of their teachers during these activities. We will be assisted by the Baker County Sheriff's Department during the course of these drills. Again, these are drills. The safety of your student is our first and most important commitment. If you have any questions, please contact the school at 904-259-2226.
In order to protect valuable instructional time, BCMS does not accept deliveries for students. This includes gym clothes, backpacks, lunch boxes, money, projects, etc. Students should bring all necessary items with them to school. Thank you for your cooperation.
As you may be aware, BCMS has made some changes to where students go on campus before the bell rings. 6th graders can go to the gym or their cafeteria. 7th and 8th graders can go to their cafeteria or the auditorium. The library is open to students from all grade levels but is limited to a certain number of students. As a reminder and for your child’s safety, please use the designated drop off loop located behind the superintendent’s office. Do not allow your child to get out of the vehicle on any of the main roads. Thank you for your continued support!
Baker County Middle School would like to express our gratitude to R.H. Davis Oil Co., Inc. and Exxon Mobil for their $500 donation to our school through the Exxon Mobil Educational Alliance Program. Thank you so much for selecting our school to receive these funds and for your continued support!
Before students can have internet access at school, there is a contract located on page 11 in the student planner that students and parents/guardians need to read, sign, and return. If this has not already been done, please do so as soon as possible. Thank you!
