    To:  All KJHS Families

    We hope everyone is enjoying the summer and we are looking forward to having all of our Eagles return to school on Thursday, August 19th.  We know that everyone is wondering about the updated Health and Safety Guidelines.  We will be following up with additional information once we receive it.  Also, as of right now, we do not know if students will be accessing their lockers.  We appreciate everyone’s flexibility and patience during this time. 

    Please be sure to mark your calendars accordingly with the following:

    Student Orientation Days and Times

    During the Student Orientation sessions, students are able to pick up their pre-ordered school supplies and walk their schedule.  PLEASE ensure students bring a printed copy of their schedule with them.

    New 7th and 8th Grade Students (students new to District 203)
    :  Friday, August 13, 2021

                              9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. - Parents and students of all new 7th and 8th graders.
                                                                    The grade level counselors will be here to meet and greet new students.

    The building will also be open for all students to walk their schedules on:

                               Thursday, August 12th, from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m.

    If your student(s) will be out of town during the Student Orientation sessions, don’t worry!  We will allow those students to access the building after 7:00 a.m. on the first day of school, August 19th, so they can walk their schedule.  It is imperative that students bring a copy of their schedule to school for the first several days so they learn the sequence of their schedule.  We suggest that a copy of each student’s schedule be attached to their Assignment Notebook, which will be given to each student on the first day of school, to ensure it doesn’t get lost.          

    Printing Schedules

    We are actively working on our student’s schedules and teams for this upcoming school year.  Please be aware that schedules and teams could change and will not be finalized and posted until Monday, August 9th, at 3:00 p.m. 

    Students will be able to print out their own schedule in Infinite Campus starting on Monday, August 9th, at 3:00 p.m.  Once you view your schedule, you can print it by clicking on Reports and then select “schedule with locker & combo”.  Again, students need to bring their printed schedule with them. 

    We will be providing the KJHS community with an update of the Health and Safety Guidelines prior to the Student Orientations.  We can’t wait to see all of our new and returning students in a few weeks.
