Welcome to Putnam Middle School for the 2018-2019 school year! 

As we prepare for the new school year, I want to share some important information with you.

School hours for the 2018-2019 school year are from 7:30 a.m. to 2:10 p.m.  Students should arrive to school no later than 7:25 a.m. so that they will be in homeroom on time before 7:30 a.m.  The earliest students should be dropped off is 7:15 a.m.  If you are picking your child up at the end of the school day, your child will exit the building after buses leave the parking lot. Bus transportation is provided only to those students who live more than one mile from the school.

Putnam Middle School will continue to provide breakfast to students each morning.  Students wanting breakfast will pick it up in the cafeteria after arriving to school and then bring it to homeroom.  This program continues to be at no cost to families.    

Each student will be assigned the use of a specific hall locker.  The lockers do not have locks on them.  Students are urged not to bring valuables to school as the security of the locker and anything found in it are the student’s responsibility.  Students wishing to use a lock must provide the lock combination or spare key to the main office.

I want all students in Putnam Middle School to have an engaging, productive, safe, successful, and fun middle school experience.  Our faculty is committed to challenging our students to become independent learners and responsible citizens while being responsive to their social and emotional needs.  The essential skills that students develop here at Putnam Middle School will help them meet with success in high school and in years to come.

I am looking forward to working with you to help each student have a successful year.  If I can be of any assistance or should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by email at or by telephone at 860-963-6920.
