list of activities Extracurricular Activities

Meyzeek offers extensive extracurricular activitis designed for academics, athletics, and recreation. After-school programming comes from Meyzeek itself, its Community School, and such partnering organizations as Metro Parks. Students should watch announcements for clubs, tryouts, and special opportunities.

Students can stay after school only for extracurricular activities. Otherwise, students must go home at the end of school. Meyzeek does not have the staff or capacity to watch students after school who are not involved in an activity.

For more information, check under the Activities tab at the top of the page.


Bus Transportation

Riding the bus is a privilege, dependent on good behavior. Students must respect and obey all instructions given by bus drivers and abide by all JCPS bus regulations.

  • Both on and off the bus, the bus driver is in charge, with full authority over his or her passengers.
  • Students are to load and unload in an orderly and safe fashion. Students should be at their respective bus stops at least five minutes before the scheduled pick-up time.
  • Good behavior at the bus stop and on the bus determines students’ ongoing permission to ride the bus. While on the bus, students must:
    • Sit in the seat while the bus is in motion.
    • Keep hands and head inside the bus.
    • Avoid horseplay.
    • Keep noise at a reasonable level, whereby passengers can hear instructions from the bus driver at all times.
    • Never throw anything on the bus or out of the window.
    • Be courteous to other passengers, passers-by, and the bus driver.
    • Behave appropriately in designated areas while waiting for the bus—be it at the bus stop in the morning or in the school building in the afternoon.
  • Students unable to meet these expectations face disciplinary action up to and including exclusion from bus transportation.
  • If a student wishes to ride a different bus (to go home with a friend, for example) he or she must have a permission note signed by a parent, including the parent's phone number. The student must bring the note to the office in the morning. Office personnel will call the parent/guardian to verify the note. Once verified, it will be given back to the student during lunch so he or she can present it to the bus driver. Students with unsigned/unverified notes will not be allowed to ride a different bus under any circumstances.

For more information, visit the JCPS Transportation Services Web site. To find your bus, access the Bus Finder.

Textbooks

Textbooks are provided to students at no charge. In the event that textbooks are lost or damaged, students are responsible for replacement or repair costs.


Medication

  • No medication of any kind will be dispensed unless an official form is signed by a parent/guardian and is on file in the reception office. Prescription medications must have the doctor’s authorization on file and must be kept in the reception office at all times.
  • Only office staff members are able to dispense medication.
  • Students are never to have any medication—including aspirin and ibuprofen—in their possession. To do so is in violation of the JCPS Zero Tolerance Policy.

Immunizations and Physicals

  • State law requires that each student have a current Immunization Certificate on file. Sixth-grade students are required to receive two measles/mumps/rubella boosters, Hepatitis B series, and a physical prior to middle school enrollment.
  • Students not in compliance with this regulation may be barred from participation in school athletics and may be barred from school entirely.
  • Immunizations and physicals may be obtained from any branch of the Jefferson County Health Department or from a family doctor.

For more information, visit the JCPS Health Requirements page.
