Dear Princeton Unified Middle School Families:

We are one week from Thanksgiving and I wanted to take this first opportunity to express my best wishes to all of our families.  This is a reminder that next Wednesday, November 25th, we will be remote but will remain in our "hybrid" schedule...the day concludes at 1PM. 

As you may already be aware, Princeton Public School District has made the decision to shift to all remote learning beginning Wednesday, November 30th through Monday, December 7th

Message From Dr. Donovan: Reflections on a Rainy Day and Loving Kindness Meditation

There are students once again in the halls in all of our buildings, with masks and six feet apart, but they are there.  As I was scanning temperatures last week, asking students to remove their hats, move their stylish hair, and check that they did not have fevers, I felt a familiar happiness.  I was making eye contact, smiling, saying hi, and telling students to have a fantastic day.  It struck me once again how powerful human connection is.  How a simple smile and have a great day can completely change your mood trajectory.  It didn’t matter that it was raining, and the rain ruined my hair.  It didn’t matter that I wore open toed shoes only to find out the temperature high was 59 that day.  What mattered was that we were together.

Dear PUMS Families!

We have enjoyed meeting with families and holding student orientations last week.

We are absolutely ecstatic to have connected with over 700 students during the week's orientations.

Ms. DiCarlo has been reminding everyone that it is important to give yourself some grace as we adapt to the opening of the school year.  Some things will be new and confusing at first but we are here to help.

Due to the current circumstances, Princeton Unified Middle School is unable to accept visitors until after August 24. 

At that time, all visitors must visit by appointment only.

When arriving to the building for your appointment, you should make a phone call to the main office in order to alert staff of your arrival. You will then be directed to enter the building through the security vestibule at the main entrance only.
