Resources for Explorer Middle School Parents
Research shows that family engagement in schools improves student achievement and reduces absenteeism. Students with involved parents or other caregivers earn higher grades and test scores, have better social skills, and show improved behavior.
The resources below were created to help parents stay informed about policies and procedures at Explorer Middle School (EMS). We also invite interested parents to take a more active role at Explorer through the School Council and United Parent Council.
EMS Cell Phone Policy
Students MAY use their cell phones before school, during passing period, at lunch, and after school. Students may NOT have their phones on their person during class or while using the restroom.
EMS Dress Code
EMS ID Policy
Students must wear their ID in accordance with school and district policy.
Students arriving tardy to the classroom disrupt instruction and student learning.
Absences prevent you from excelling in school because you miss instructional time in class.
EMS Behavior Code
Integrity, honesty, and responsibility.
We provide students with supportive learning environments that include rich academic and extracurricular experiences, interventions, and programs to prepare them for a successful future.
Because part of a students success depends on their community's strength, we offer information on the following resources.
