Summer Office Hours and Location

Our summer office hours are from 7:00am until 5:00pm Monday through Thursday.

Summer Construction

Swift Creek is under construction as the final phases of HVAC replacement are made.  As a result, we are unable to offer an introduction to middle school course for rising 6th graders.  However, students will have an opportunity to get acclimated with the school and practice opening lockers during Business Night.  We hope to see you there!

Medication Policy Change **

School Board Policy 4130 regarding medication has changed. All prescription medication administered at school must now have a health care provider’s written order and parent permission. We are no longer able to accept the pharmacy label as the medication order. We can accept the following as the provider order:

  • A CCPS Medication Administration Request Form completed and signed by the health-care provider.
  • copy of the prescription signed by the health-care provider before you have it filled.
  • written order signed by the health-care provider on the provider’s stationary.
  • health-care plan that contains a complete medication order (name of medication, dose, time to be administered, route, side effects, etc.) signed by the health-care provider.

Reading for the Summer

The benefits to students of reading over the summer are many, and we are encouraging all students to read at least 3 books this summer.    

Additional resources are available at Click HERE

Immunizations

For students new to Swift Creek Middle, please remember that according the Code of Virginia, students must have appropriate immunization records on file with Swift Creek Middle in order to attend school.

Please  see the attached “School and Day Care Minimum Immunization Requirements” from the VA Health Department’s website

Min Immunization Requirements.pdf 

The Chesterfield County Health Department offers immunization clinics and many childhood vaccines are free.  A link to their website is included in the corresponding email.  Click HERE

You may also reach Child Health Services at 768-7454 for additional information.

Swift Creek Middle School will be open from 7 am to 5 pm, Monday through Thursday to accept immunization records.

School Shopping

Many of you are already thinking about shopping for school clothes.  Before you make those purchases, please review the dress code below.  Also, please see our website for a list of school supplies. Click HERE 

Dress Code

All students who attend any public school in Chesterfield County are expected to dress appropriately for a K-12 educational environment. Clothing shall fit, be neat and clean, and conform to standards of safety, good taste, appropriateness, and decency. Any clothing that interferes with or disrupts the educational environment is prohibited.

Among other things, the following are prohibited:

  • Clothing with language or images that are vulgar, discriminatory, or obscene;
  • Clothing that promotes or depicts illegal or violent behavior or items prohibited in a school setting, such as weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia;
  • Clothing that contains threats such as gang symbols;
  • Clothing that exposes cleavage, private parts, the midriff, or undergarments;
  • Sagging or low-cut pants;
  • Tube tops, halter tops, tank tops, backless blouses or blouses with only ties in the back;
  • Clothing constructed of see-through material; and,
  • Head coverings, unless required for religious or medical purposes.

The parent(s) of any student required to wear a head covering based on religious beliefs, medical needs, or other good cause, should contact the principal of the student’s school.

Students not complying with this policy will be asked to take appropriate action including, but not limited to, covering the noncomplying clothing, changing clothes, reporting to in-school detention, or being sent home. Repeated infractions will result in disciplinary action.

This policy is intended to constitute the minimum expectation for student attire throughout the school division.  However, individual schools may adopt more restrictive expectations.

Swift Creek Middle School is a place of business where students are learning both academic and social skills.  Students are expected to wear attire that is appropriate for business/school day activities.  Student attire should reflect a positive attitude toward school and should not be distracting to the educational environment.  In some instances, current fashion may not be acceptable for the school setting.

Among other things, the following are prohibited at Swift Creek Middle School:

  • Shoes must be worn at all times and laces must be secured.  Bedroom slippers are not acceptable.  No rolling shoes are permitted (wheels will be taken out and confiscated).
  • Shirts or blouses must be of sufficient length to meet the waistband at all times.  No bare midriffs are permitted.  Muscle tops, half-shirts, tube tops, halter tops, off-the-shoulder shirts, shirts with spaghetti straps, and low cut shirts of any design are notacceptable.  No cleavage should be visible.  The entire back should be covered at all times.
  • Shorts, skorts, and short skirts are only acceptable when worn in good taste.  The length of these items must meet the fingertips when the student stands erect and arms are at his/her side, regardless of other garments that are worn beneath (e.g.  leggings/spandex).  Short shorts, gym-type shorts, stretch shorts, and un-hemmed shorts are not allowed.  Pajama-type pants are not acceptable.  Holes in garments must meet the fingertip standard.
  • Provocative clothing of any sort is inappropriate for school.  See-through clothing, bare or open midriffs, spandex garments, and leggings fit the category of provocative and are unacceptable.

Students who violate these dress expectations may be removed from class and placed in ISD until compliance is met and may be subject to additional disciplinary action. Repeated dress code violations will be considered defiance and penalties will include additional disciplinary action.

 

Community Service Started June 17, 2017

Last school year, Swift Creek Middle School students accumulated thousands of hours of community service! Students who completed 30 hours of community service were honored at the end of the year awards ceremonies.

Students may begin logging hours for the coming year starting June 17, 2017.  A copy of the log sheet may be found on our website. Students, who reach the goal of 30 hours of service by the end of May 2018, will be recognized at our end-of-the year awards ceremony!

Spanish 1 Project

The Spanish 1 students at SCMS have spent the last few weeks writing simple Spanish books using what they have learned this year. These books will form a beginning library for next year's Spanish 1 students. The students had an opportunity to read their books out loud to their parents and classmates last week to show off all they have learned. They did a great job and were very excited to share. Here are some pictures from the celebration:

 

Picture of the Week

Thank you Mr. Jay Ipson, holocaust survivor and history lecturer, for speaking to our 7th graders  today.  His personal stories were very compelling.
