School Forms to be Completed
Please complete the forms enclosed in the packet and return them during orientation or on the first day of school. Please do not email them.
In addition to the forms in your packet, please visit the JCPS "Parent Place" to complete:
- Nurse Office Consent
- Home Language Survey
Bus riders are given a backpack bus tag at orientation. This tag tells the bus driver exactly where your student will be getting off of the bus. Check the tag carefully for accuracy. It must remain on your child's backpack for at least the first two weeks of school.
Use the JCPS Bus Finder to determine the stop that serves your address and what time your bus will arrive in the mornings.
Medicine Distribution at School
NOTE: Students are not permitted to carry medication (including cough drops). Inhalers may be carried by a student provided there is a form on file with a physician's permission to do so.
