Bristow Middle School embodies an effective and innovative school climate that provides a rigorous curriculum aligned to state standards. We hold ourselves accountable for student achievement and school success by nurturing our diverse learning community through a supportive and safe environment with consistent behavioral and academic expectations.
Bristow Middle School recognizes the uniqueness of adolescent learners. We will collaborate to provide diverse teaching and learning experiences that promote high academic achievement and success. Working together with parents and the community, we will provide all students with the opportunity to become critical thinkers, and to progress academically and socially.
In an effort to minimize disruptions to classroom instruction, we have a NEW policy regarding lunch, homework and personal belonging drop off. If an item is dropped off in the office during the instructional day, the student will receive a pass during fifth period to come to the office during their lunch period. The school will not be responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items. Any food or perishable remaining in the office at the end of the instructional day will be thrown away, and personal items will be placed in the lost and found.
School office hours are 8:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday. All visitors are required to sign in at the front office and show picture ID upon request by staff. A staff member may accompany visitors while they are on school grounds. All visitors are required to follow registration procedures including wearing visitor identification badges while on school grounds. Classroom visitations must be made with the classroom teacher no less than 24 hours in advance. (AR 1250)
In order to register, a visitor shall, upon request, furnish the principal or designee with the following information: (Penal Code 627.3)
1. His/her name, address, and occupation
2. His/her age, if less than 21
3. His/her purpose for entering school grounds
4. Proof of identity/picture ID

The principal or designee may refuse to register any outsider if he/she reasonably concludes that the individual's presence or acts would disrupt the school, students, or employees; would result in damage to property; or would result in the distribution or use of a controlled substance. The principal or designee or school security officer may revoke any visitor’s registration if he/she has a reasonable basis for concluding that the individual's presence on school grounds would interfere or is interfering with the peaceful conduct of school activities or would disrupt or is disrupting the school, students, or staff.
