New Online Payments for School Fees
Please click on the link to the left to pay your child's school fees online. Follow the instructions to register. Please note that this new software will be able to eventually enable parent notifications; where parents will be notified when new fees are requested/required by your school (i.e. Fundraisers, Fieldtrips, player fees, etc.). Parents do have to opt into this though. More information will be made available as we receive it. However, at this moment you are able to pay school fees.
Morning Drop Off Instructions
Afternoon Pick-Up Instructions
If you need to find your student's bus stop/locations, please click on this link. Bus Stop Locator Link. You will need to enter your address and student grade. Then click on the name of your school to find out the bus number, pick up, and drop off times.
The only exception is for students who live within the Parent Responsibility Zone (PRZ) of your zoned school. If the student lives within the PRZ, the parent is responsible for providing transportation. If you need more information about the PRZ or need to request a bus stop not listed, please click on the following link: Bus Stop Request Form and PRZ Information
If you have a transportation concern, please click on the following link to access the form to file a complaint with Transportation.
Please remember, that students are not allowed to ride a bus from the middle school to Powell High School, walk home, walk to a nearby business, or ride home in a waiting car at the high school. This results in bus overcrowding and liability issues for school and community members.

2019-2020 Supply Lists:
Powell Middle School does not allow students to carry any type of backpack from class to class. Students may carry their supplies to/from their lockers in the morning and afternoons and hang the backpack in the locker. However, we only allow a string/cinch bag to be used to carry supplies from class to class. Therefore, all students will need a string/cinch bag, if your child chooses to carry one during the day.
An updated link to the 2019-2020 Supply lists is located in the margin to the left. Please understand that with new staff additions over the summer, some items will not be known until school is back in session. Teachers will be very accommodating and flexible to allow time for those newer items to be purchased.
Finally, in an effort to be more cost-friendly, we have tried to supply individual teacher names with appropriate lists whenever possible. However, please understand that when schedules are released in late July, some schedules might still change for a variety of reasons, which would effect the supply lists. We truly appreciate your patience and understanding regarding schedules and supply lists.
8:00 AM - 12:00 PM 1/2 Day for Students
