Principal's Message

  Welcome to Discovery Middle School!

Discovery Middle School families,

We have had another great week at Discovery - despite all the weather delayed dismissals!  I do want to thank everyone for your patience as we have dealt with a consistently unpleasant weather pattern over the last couple of weeks.  I did take a meteorology class in college, but it was far too basic to predict the wild Florida weather we have been experiencing.  Please know that even though dismissal may take longer when we have lightning in the area, it is for the safety of your students and our staff.  We are provided weather monitoring applications by OCPS and we use this information to determine if lightning is in the area.  Should lightning occur, we must delay dismissal by at least 30 minutes.  

I hope to see you at our Open House on Thursday evening.  Please plan to report to  your child's 1st period class by 6:00 pm.  Your student will bring home a form Wednesday evening for them to write their schedule so you know where you are going.  Open House is a time for parents to meet the teachers and receive information about your child's classes and student attendance is not required. 

Our first SAC meeting of the year, originally scheduled for Thursday, September 22, has been rescheduled for Thursday, September 29 at 4:30 pm.  Please join us in the media center.

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