Welcome to the Sebastian Middle School

Our hours are 7:30 am-2:00 pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and until 1:00 pm on Wednesday. 
Students currently visit the Media Center on a bi-weekly basis through their ELA class. Books are either due for renewal or returned every two weeks.  Students may also come throughout the school day to the Media Center with a signed note from their teacher.

MakerSpace is also available during the day.  Lunch passes are given out on a first come first serve basis during morning passing time.
