Hello Jackson families, this is Mr. Hagerty with some important information from your child’s school.
As we move to an electronic system which is replacing the Grey Envelope procedure we have followed for years at JMS for getting you important school news and announcements, we invite you to view all of these documents online. Please go to our Jackson Middle School website, click on school news/announcements under the School Overview heading, then click on flyers and handouts for parents/guardians. There you will see online folders by month. The September folder will contain all of the important first week information. If you would prefer to receive hard copies of these documents, please contact your child’s advisory teacher, counselor, or our main office. You can also access the online folder here.
Next, a reminder to parents that if you are dropping off or picking up your child at school, you must use the very East pool parking lot. Due to bus traffic and activity at the elementary campus, the East lot is the only lot for Jackson families to use. In addition, we have converted the exit from the East lot to “right turn only” at dismissal time due to the number of incidents that have occurred with left-turning vehicles. Thank you for helping us keep our traffic flow safe and remember that school buses provide front-door service if available at your family’s home location.
Lastly, please ask your child if they have all of the school supplies needed for their courses such as calculators, notebooks, and folders. If you need assistance in providing any school supply items, please contact our school to see if we can assist your child be prepared for school.
Thank you and have a good evening.
Mr. Hagerty, Principal
Jackson Middle School, A Specialty School for Math and Science
