From The Principal

​Be On Time
Towards the end of the first semester, some students had difficulty arriving on time at the cafeteria for lunch.  Late students have been warned by Bemis administration and I am reaching out to you for your assistance.  Please remind your student that they are expected to be in each classroom, gym or cafeteria BEFORE the bell rings signifying the start of class/ lunch periods.  Beginning Thursday, January 23, 2020 students who arrive late to the cafeteria will be assigned a specific seat in the cafeteria for the length of the lunch period.  Students who arrive prior to the bell ringing can sit where they choose to sit in the cafeteria, as usual. 
I thank you in advance for reminding your student that they are expected to be in the cafeteria, during their lunch period, before the bell rings.  
Thomas Yaw, Bemis Junior High School Principal

Body Spray/Cologne/Perfume
Bemis Junior High has several students and staff members who have allergic reactions to strong perfumes, after-shave and men’s cologne.  The reactions range from mild to severe headaches that can result in nausea and being sent home from school.  In addition, strong perfume/cologne smells can trigger asthma attacks.  Junior high is filled with a variety of smells ranging from strawberries to Old Spice.  When those smells dominate the hallways, from the application of fragrances during the school day, problems do occur.  We are asking students to put on their favorite fragrance once in the morning before school.  Please ask your student not to bring in bottles and sprays of cologne, after-shave and perfume to re-apply throughout the day.  
Thank you for your support.
