Ortiz MS Spring Semester Welcome Back Letter - Please review!

Welcome back, Ortiz Eagles! 

Happy New Year! We hope you had a great and restful break. We are excited to welcome you back for the Spring 2024 semester. The first day of the Spring 2024 semester is Monday, January 8th. Please ensure your child is on time and attends school every day, dressed in their appropriate grade level dress code and backpack with their charged Chromebook. Ortiz Middle School officially starts at 8:25 AM. Please do not drop students off at school before 7:30 AM. Leaving your child unsupervised before the official school start time is an issue for student safety.

Students will report to their Eagle Time Blue class. They will receive a copy of their schedule for the Spring 2024 semester.

Safety is our number one concern. To ensure students arrive at and are dismissed from school in a safe and orderly fashion, we ask that you adhere to our drop-off and pick-up procedures.

  • Front of the campus, on Telephone Rd (Red path): Designated area for buses and tagged vehicles only. 

  • Side of the building, on Dillon St (Yellow path):  Designated area for Car riders drop off and pick up.

  • Walkers are to use designated sidewalks to arrive and leave the campus.

Please follow campus procedures for Arrival /Dismissal. Campus procedures are designed to help navigate traffic, avoid accidents, and not block traffic. Do not use/stop on Telephone Rd to pick up or drop off at any time. Walkers may not cut across to campus via the streets, athletic field, or hopping the campus fence. Students will exit from the main entrance or the Dillon-side entrance at dismissal. Campus dismissal is at 4 PM daily. Please ensure to pick up your student on time.

We look forward to seeing you on Monday, January 8th!
