  • A reminder that arrival time on Wednesdays is 8:45 A.M. Our JH commons is in use by teacher groups until then. Students may have to wait outside if they arrive to school earlier than 8:45 A.M. on Wednesdays. Thank you!

  • We understand that sometimes plans change at the last minute.  We receive several phone calls each day and do our best to get those messages to students.  It would help us if you visit with your child and have a daily plan in place.  If that plan changes, please call us by 2:00.

  • If your child is absent from school, he or she should...

    1. Check the JH website for assignments
    2. Communicate with teachers via email 
    3. If needed, call the office for textbooks or other items
    With our 1:1 laptop initiative, very rarely do we have "packets" of work for parents to pick up. If you find out your child does need something from his or her locker or a teacher, please give us a call and we'll be happy to get that for you.

  • Sports Physicals 

    Students planning to participate in spring athletics need to have up to date physicals on file. Students without physicals on file will not be able to participate in activities until the school has a copy of a current physical. If your child needs a physical form they may pick one up in the office.
