Message from the Principal

Beginning on Monday, February 26th, all outside sports equipment will need to be put away before school hours. This includes footballs, tennis balls, basketballs and so forth.  Students can store their equipment in the scooter closet. Items must be dropped off prior to the start of first period.

Also, beginning on Monday, February 26th, the front office will no longer notify students if a lunch is dropped off for them. We will not be interrupting instructional time for students to come and pick up their lunch. Being in class the maximum amount of time is our main focus. Please plan accordingly.

National Assessment of Educational Progress

8th Grade Parents and Students: John Muir has been selected to participate in National Assessment of Educational Progress. Only a small percentage of students in the 8th grade will have the opportunity to participate, and NAEP has made the randomly selected list already. I have attached the letter with further information. No action is needed on your part unless you want to opt your child out of the assessment. For more information and to view the letter, press HERE.

Order Your Yearbook Today


It is time to pre-order your school yearbook. The cost is $45.00. Order forms are in the office. Don’t miss out.  You can also order your Yearbook online at ybpay.lifetouch.com with Yearbook ID Code: 8502018.  Make payments to John Muir Middle School.

Student Handbooks

All Muir students should have received the SJUSD Student Handbook. There is a plethora of valuable information inside and none more important than the very first page which is the acknowledgement of handbook and technology acceptable use form. You and your student must sign this front page and turn it in to their teacher to be able to use the technology resources on campus.  The back page has optional choices on photography taken at school and release of information stipulations, but the front page is mandatory to be signed by student and parent and returned as soon as possible. Your explicit attention to this matter is appreciated.
