From ADMIN

Parents,
It is White Station Middle School’s goal to protect instructional time. Effective November 6, 2017, we will no longer call students during or between classes to claim any personal items (lunch, homework, apparel, textbooks, instruments) from the office, left by parents after 9:25a.m., as this is a major classroom distraction. However, if you have communicated with your child that you will bring an item, they are welcome to come to the office and get the item between class times.
This decision was made Monday, October 1, 2017 by our school’s Leadership Council.
