A reminder about school dress attire from Mr. Sloane - Posted April4, 2014
Parents - Spring is in the air and as the weather gets warmer please be aware of the Howard L. Goff Code of Conduct around dress attire. We want to promote a safe environment at school and that is reflected in some of the clothing choices our students make. Please be aware that for girls – shorts and skirts need to be at the appropriate length (mid-thigh length), no spaghetti tank tops and all private areas of the body need to be covered, this includes the belly. For boys- no tang tops or inappropriate tee-shirts. For a complete list please refer to page 14 in the student agenda book. Thank you for helping Howard L. Goff Middle School uphold our mantra of Expecting Excellence.

Parent Drop Off Information - If you drop off your child prior to 7:40 a.m. they will wait in the main lobby until buses unload. If they arrive after 7:55 a.m. they will be required to report to the main office to obtain a tardy slip.

Picking Up Your Child at Goff MS - If you have arranged for someone other than a parent to pick up your child, please be sure to send a note including the individual's name and please be sure that they bring identification with them to the school. This request must always be made in writing. To ensure the safety of all our students, children will not be released to anyone other than a parent without a note and proper identification.
