Rainy Day Dismissal
Parents and students, in anticipation of rainy weather next week, this is a reminder that students with an umbrella ☔️ will be allowed to wait in the median of the parking lot at dismissal instead of under the awning on rainy days. 🌧💦☔️
Car Loop Procedures Video
In anticipation of the first day of school, we have created a video of the car loop procedures for drop off and pick up. Please take a moment to view this video so we can streamline this process. (There is no sound.) If you have difficulty opening this video, it is posted on Crayton's Facebook Page at Crayton Middle.
Sports Pre-participation Athletic Forms
The Athletic Department at Crayton Middle School now hosts their Pre-participation Athletic Forms online with ArbiterAthlete, powered by PlanetHS, a software company committed to keeping your student(s) safe. This digital platform will allow you, and your student(s), to complete and access athletic forms via computer, tablet, or mobile phone. It is HIPPA, COPPA and FERPA compliant.
Athletes cannot participate in sports until digital forms are complete, unless otherwise specified by your school. Forms will be valid for the entire school year for which they are filled out, with the exception of the physical exam provided by your physician which will reflect the policy set in place by your athletic department.
PowerSchool Parent Portal Mobile App
The PowerSchool Mobile App gives the parents instant access to information they need to stay informed on student grades, performance, and attendance.
Parents using the PowerSchool Mobile App for the first time will need to have a District Code before they can enter their username and password.
Here is the Richland School District One district code and where it should be entered on the app:
