  • A correction to the all call made earlier this week--any extra yearbooks going on sale Friday, May 17 will be for a cost of $52.00--not $50. If paying in cash, it will need to be exact change.

  • Good afternoon, this is Principal Heather Findeisen. When something happens which impacts our school, I want to make sure you have complete and accurate information.

    Earlier today, the fire department responded to a report of smoke in the cafeteria. Our staff immediately evacuated students from the school. Upon arriving at the school, firefighters found no fire, gave the “all clear” to re-enter the building and classes continued as normal.

    A huge thanks goes out to our awesome students and staff for an excellent job clearing the building!

    Thank you for your support and partnership with Dixon Middle.

  • Parents with the weather becoming warmer, we are starting to have an increase of dress code violations. Please remind students that their shorts/skirts must be fingertip length and there can be no holes/rips above their fingertips. Also, shirt straps must be at least three fingers in width to be appropriate for school.

  • Student water bottles must be clear. Slightly tinted is okay. Staff should be able to identify that only water is contained in the water bottle.
