Important Information for all 8th Grade Parents/Guardians

At last Wednesday night’s BOE meeting, it was approved that all parents and guardians who have paid a deposit or who have paid their full balance towards their child’s 8th grade trip to Washington, D.C. will be receiving a full refund in the amount that they have paid.  The district will begin processing all D.C. checks this week and we are hopeful the checks will begin to be mailed Monday, May 11th.


As we continue to explore a variety of options associated with graduation, we would like to extend another opportunity to any parent or guardian that would still like to purchase a gown for their child. Please understand this is not to say that we will have a formal ceremony and that children may be required to wear a gown, but rather we would like to afford this opportunity to those of you who may wish to take photographs of your child in their gown or who may want to keep the gown as a keepsake of this momentous occasion.


If you still wish to purchase a gown for your child, please deliver a check to the Sussex Middle School any weekday between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. The check should be made payable to Sussex Middle School in the amount of $19.00. The last day to order a gown will be on Friday, May 15th. 


Thank you and stay well.
