Mission StatementWe believe that all students can and must learn at a high level of achievement as determined by state and national standards. Therefore, the students, parents and staff of Troy Middle School commit to a comprehensive system of support to assure this outcome. To promote defined high levels of achievement, we will provide a safe and supportive learning environment that embraces the diverse needs of our students and develops positive character as demonstrated through respectful, responsible and peaceful behaviors.
Please be aware that Troy Middle School follows the Troy District Dress Code (refer to the Student/Parent Handbook). If your child is not properly dressed, he or she may be sent to the Assistant Principal's office and you may be notified to bring in another set of clothing.
Riding Designated Buses
Students are assigned buses at the beginning of the school year. They must ride their assigned bus to and from school and get on/off at their assigned stop. The Middle School office will not give out bus passes to ride another bus. Please contact the Transportation Department with any questions at 815-577-6290.
Absent From School
A parent or guardian must call in each day the student is absent from school. Please call the office at 815-230-9920 at the beginning of the school day. Learning builds day by day. A child who misses a day of school misses a day of learning.
Student ID Policy
School-issued picture IDs are to be worn by students on a lanyard, preferably issued by the school, at all times. In an attempt to promote greater student accountability for bringing their IDs to class on a daily basis, Troy Middle School will be charging $5.00 for lost student identification cards. Student IDs are important for identification purposes as well as for purchasing lunch and checking out library books on a daily/weekly basis.
All TMS students receive a picture ID at the beginning of the school year. Students will be required to purchase a new ID card for $5.00 in the library in the event that they lose their initial ID.
If students do not pay this fee, parents will be sent notification of the number of IDs their child has been required to purchase and be charged the corresponding amount on a monthly basis. This amount is required to be paid promptly; if it is not paid, the Troy School District will utilize a collection agency to collect unpaid fees. Fines charged go directly to the replacement costs for student IDs and lanyards. Student lanyards may be purchased individually for $1.00
