JJHS T203 Review

  • Middle School Day Stages 2&3 Update

    Posted by Kimberly Fricke on 10/6/2020

    At the Board of Education meeting on October 5th, the Board adopted a new middle school day schedule for Stage 2 and Stage 3 learning.  During Stage 2, the goal is to provide an opportunity for all students to return to the building for some in-school learning in some capacity prior to the Stage 3 implementation. We will provide information regarding grade level orientations. Additional information and details will be provided to you at a later date.  The new schedule which will be effective October 19th, will be shared in advance and may differ slightly from what was displayed as a sample in the BOE presentation. 

    As part of our planning and preparation, the district will be asking parents/guardians to complete a new survey.  We need to know which students will continue with e-Learning, which students will be returning utilizing the hybrid model, and which students will require transportation.  The new elementary survey will be sent out first, followed by the middle school survey and then the high school survey. 

     

    As always, in order to provide a healthy and safe learning environment, we need to carefully monitor the health metrics within our county.  While we are currently on track to transition to Stage 2, transitioning will depend on staying within the district defined metrics for us to continue to advance to and maintain in-person instruction.  We ask that everyone continues to wear face coverings, as well as practice social distancing and healthy hygiene habits to support our effort to return to in-person learning.

  • Health Services Information

    Posted by Tracy Phillips on 9/8/2020

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Even though this school year is starting different than previous years, I wanted to reach out from the health office to let you know a few things you can do to help ensure that when we are able to meet in person we are ready to support your child.

    Medications for School:

    Updated Medication forms for the 20/21 school year. Please ask your doctors to complete these forms.  These orders can be emailed or faxed to the health office
    Start working on getting a set of medications for school, i.e. Epi-Pens and inhalers. Please do not drop off medication at school until students are in person.

    Specific Health Concerns:

    If your child has specific health concern (diabetes, seizures, Crohns, et) I will be reaching out to set up phone/zoom meetings over the next few weeks to update care plans and gather information that teachers will need to know. If you would to like to meet sooner or your child has a new condition, please call me at 630-983-2146

    Physicals and Immunization Requirements:

    If you have a 6th grade student, please remember that 6th grade physicals and immunizations are still required. You can email or fax me any completed forms.  Any 7th or 8th grade students interested in participating in sports this school year will need a completed sport physical. These physicals are good for 1 year and are needed to attend any practices or games/meets.  You can email or fax these completed forms to the health office.

    If you need any assistance during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.  We look forward to talking with you soon.  Stay Safe and Healthy.
