Thank you for stopping by the Smithfield Middle School website. We are in the process of updating our website for the new school year. Please be on the lookout for dates and deadlines for upcoming events. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the school at 757-365-4100.
Welcome to the 2016-2017 Smithfield Middle School year!
I hope that each of you has had a restful and enjoyable summer break! We are excited to see each of you and start the school year in just a few days. Welcome to our returning and new students and families to the Panther family.
The first day of school is September 6, 2016; however, there are a few events happening prior to the first day. SMS will be hosting an open house on Thursday, September 1, from 2:00pm to 7:00pm. During this time you can meet your teachers and hear about many of the exciting educational activities that they have in store for you.
One change to be aware of is a slight adjustment to the start of the school day here at SMS. We will be opening the building at 7:10am and our homeroom period, “Panther Time,” will start at 7:30am. Students who arrive after 7:30am will need to get a tardy pass from the front office. We have made this change to align our schedule with the high school, which will allow us to better utilize the time between bus arrival and the beginning of the instructional day. For those parents who plan to drop their child off in the morning, please arrive in time to ensure your child will be in school no later than 7:30am.
If you have any questions regarding your student’s schedule our office hours are 8am - 4pm Monday through Friday.
