    How does Cain Middle School provide for a safe campus?
    The school continually monitors student behavior. If students experience problems in school, then parents should contact the appropriate assistant principal as soon as possible. Upon an investigation, interventions and/or consequences for misconduct will be administered.

    In addition, a school resource officer is assigned to the campus. To provide for maximum security, all visitors (including parents) must sign-in at the front office. When parents are picking up their child early from school, they will need to provide a current driver’s license to verify identity (no exceptions).
