Hello Parents and Athletes!

We are very excited for a new year of Athletics at Harper Junior High.  We have some changes this year, so please make sure to read over the website so that you do not miss important  new information, dates, and requirements. 

The Winter sports parent meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 24th at 6pm in the Holmes Gym.  At that time we will meet as a group first and then you will break off with your specific team for a parent meeting to meet your coach.  The Davis Junior High Athletic Expectation Sheet is available on the Athletics page for you to read.  Make sure to sign and return the Cleared to Participate form (both parent/guardian and student) once you have completed the new online registration (link is at the top of the Athletics Website) print the cleared to participate form and return to your coach.  This along with your The online Physical Athletic Packet and current Athletic Physical with a Doctor signature is due before anyone can participate in a practice.

 

The online or hardcopy paperwork deadline and cut off for WINTER SPORTS (7th and 8th grade girls and boys basketball AND wrestling) is October 19th.  Official first practice is Monday, October 22nd.  If your paperwork is not in by Friday the 19th of October, you will not be allowed to participate in the winter sports season.  

We are so excited to have you participating in athletics this year at HOLMES!  Please let me know if you  have any questions.

*Please get your online paperwork in early.  All paperwork is valid for 1 school year only.  Each student needs to turn in paperwork ONCE every year even if they play multiple sports.  You do NOT need to turn in an athletic packet for every sport, but you do need to turn in a new emergency card for every sport played. Emergency cards are handed out at the first practice.

 

 

Hello Harper! We have a new district website which is full of excellent information! Here is a link to our district allergy brochure. It has a lot of information about allergy awareness in the classroom.  https://www.djusd.net/UserFiles/Servers/Server_117089/File/Departments/Student_Support_Services/Health_Services/Food_Allergy_Brochure.pdf

 If your child needs medication at school, here is the link to the medication form to have filled out by your doctor. https://www.djusd.net/cms/one.aspx?pageId=850863

PARENT NEWS:

 

 

 

Dear Parent/Guardian: Last week at Harper Jr. High, we held our Safety Week. Over the course of that week, students and staff participated in a series of emergency drills to practice procedures that we would use in an actual urgent situation. On Friday, September 28th, the school district will be sending out a TEST of our Emergency Communication System to the phone numbers, emails and mobile text numbers for emergency contacts for each of our students. The purpose of that “Test Message” is to ensure our parent community understands how, and in what form, you will be messaged in the event of a real emergency and to identify gaps in emergency data that can then be addressed in advance of an urgent event.

 

CONSIDER OPTING IN TO TEXT MESSAGES FOR FUTURE EMERGENCY ALERTS. 

If you are new to our school or the school district or haven’t already opted in to receive emergency texts, please consider doing so by texting 67587 from a mobile phone number on record with your student information (on record with our office/included in your online reenrollment.) Learn more about Emergency Text Alerts at www.djusd.net/txtmsg

 

As a reminder, all emergency and important automated school communications sent through our SchoolMessenger system will be sent from the number 1877539-7855.  If you call back this number, you are able to access any recent messages sent to you.  We encourage you to save this number in your Contacts or Caller ID as DJUSD Info/Alert. In this way, you will recognize when an emergency alert or important message is being sent to your phone from our school or school district.

 

If you have any questions, please contact our office or reach out directly to the DJUSD Public Information Officer Maria Clayton at mclayton@djusd.net.

On Friday, September 28th, the school district will be sending out a TEST of our Emergency Communication System to the phone numbers, emails and mobile text numbers for emergency contacts for each of our students. The purpose of that “Test Message” is to ensure our parent community understands how, and in what form, you will be messaged in the event of a real emergency and to identify gaps in emergency data that can then be addressed in advance of an urgent event.

 

CONSIDER OPTING IN TO TEXT MESSAGES FOR FUTURE EMERGENCY ALERTS. 

If you are new to our school or the school district or haven’t already opted in to receive emergency texts, please consider doing so by texting 67587 from a mobile phone number on record with your student information (on record with our office/included in your online reenrollment.) Learn more about Emergency Text Alerts at www.djusd.net/txtmsg

 

As a reminder, all emergency and important automated school communications sent through our SchoolMessenger system will be sent from the number 1877539-7855.  If you call back this number, you are able to access any recent messages sent to you.  We encourage you to save this number in your Contacts or Caller ID as DJUSD Info/Alert. In this way, you will recognize when an emergency alert or important message is being sent to your phone from our school or school district.

 

If you have any questions, please contact our office or reach out directly to the DJUSD Public Information Officer Maria Clayton at mclayton@djusd.net.
