Principal's Message

                                           A Message from the Principal

Dear Southwest Middle School Families,


We are still waiting on individual test score reports to come in.  I will send out a phone message when they arrive. We are holding our 6th grade Orientation Night on Thursday. August 8th from 6PM to 8PM.  Please be on time at 6PM because we are distributing important information during homeroom before we release to visit classrooms.  For the parents of incoming 7th grade students, please remember that all incoming 7th graders are required by the state to have their T-DAP vaccination paperwork submitted before starting school. Please contact your health care provider to arrange for a vaccination. Since we are a digital school, we will be distributing laptops along with schedules before school starts so that students will have their laptops for the first day of school. Due to the fact that parking will be limited due to construction and numbers, we are asking that if possible parents please pick up their child’s materials based on the times listed below with the corresponding first letter of your child’s last name.  The dates and times for laptop schedule distribution will be:


  • Tuesday August 6thstudents with last names starting from A-M 9 AM - 12:30 PM and N-Z 12:30- 3 PM.  

  • Thursday, August 8th, last names starting from A-M 9 AM - 12:30 PM and N-Z 12:30- 3 PM

  • Friday, August 9th (All grades and last names) 12:30 PM - 3:30 PM. 


Remember that school starts on August 12th. We are looking forward to another fantastic school year!


Thank you for your continued support of Southwest Middle School and remember, “GO SEA LIONS!”

Sincerely, Mr. Yockel
