IMPORTANT REMINDERS

 
  • We are strongly encouraging students who are testing to bring their lunches for these two days. Students are also  encouraged to eat a good, healthy breakfast.
  • Because of strict testing security measures, we may not allow visitors in the school on testing days.
  • Parents, this means that lunches need to be sent to school with your child. Please avoid dropping off lunches or other  materials on these days. We know this may seem inconvenient, but it is essential that we provide a safe, secure, and quiet environment for all students who are testing.
  • Students are not allowed to have electronic devices in the testing room. This includes e-readers, such as Kindles and Nooks. Students must bring a hardback or paperback book with them on the day of testing.
  • Students cannot leave the building and return later to complete their tests. If your child has an appointment on any of the testing days that affects him or her, please try to change the appointment.
 

Additional STAAR Testing Days

May 8th: Algebra I EOC
 
If you should have any questions, please contact your child's counselor. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation

2013-2014 Murphy Yearbook Pre-Sales Complete

 

We are sold out of pre-order yearbooks as of Monday, March 31st. There is a small glimmer of hope, though, if you’d still like to buy a yearbook for your child. Each year our publishing company sends us what they call “overrun” copies of the yearbook at the time of our yearbook shipment. These overrun copies are extra books beyond our original order.
However, we never know exactly how many extra books will be shipped. For this reason, any extra books that arrive in our shipment will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. We cannot take reservations for these extra copies.
 
Any extra copies wereceive will go on sale after all students who pre-ordered have received their yearbooks. This
distribution of pre-ordered yearbooks usually happens at the very end of May. We will make anannouncement over the school intercom when the extras are available for purchase, so please tell your child to listen carefully to the announcements towards the end of May to have a chance at getting a copy of this year’s yearbook.
 
Thank you for your understanding.
