Principal's Message

  Welcome to Discovery Middle School!

Discovery Middle School families,

My name is Jeff Aldridge and I'm honored to be your principal!  We look forward to welcoming our Explorers back to campus for a fun and engaging year.  The first day of school is Wednesday, August 10.  

If your child rides a bus, routes and pickup locations can be found by entering your address at this link.  OCPS is currently experiencing a bus driver shortage, so pickup and drop off times for bus riders have been adjusted.  Please note that Transportation Services has indicated buses may not release from our school until as late as 4:35 pm (3:35 pm on Wednesdays) which then puts some students not arriving home until almost 5:00 pm (4:00 pm on Wednesdays). 

General school supply lists can be found on our school website under the Students tab.  Some teachers may request additional supplies and students will be notified during the first days of school.

Should you ever have questions, please reach out and I will be happy to help.
