Principal's Message

Hello Frontier Warrior Families, this is Guin Joyce, principal of Frontier Middle School, wishing you a Warrior welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year! 


I would like to begin by saying that we are very excited about the start of this school year!


I sent an email to students and families at the beginning of August that linked to my virtual office. In the virtual office is a link to my introduction letter and a get to know you form. Link to access my virtual office: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/13OJ0NoIW7tuaRE_yfRSbqGIXYkH5Zz0QuqWPv2qHHfk/edit?usp=sharing 


In this letter, you will find information to support you with the upcoming start of this school year and a link to procedures that may answer many questions. There will be communication coming soon that will include student schedules, supply lists, and the first few days of school (Beep, Greet and Go!, and more).
