HEALTH FORMS FOR NEXT SCHOOL YEAR

As you prepare over the summer for next school year, please note that all Health Forms are online for you to print at your convenience!


Please remember, any medication prescribed by a doctor, or any over-the-counter medication that you want to bring for your child to have access to for the entire school year, requires medical orders from a physician. Those students that have medical conditions but do not take medications here at school will still need documentation for 504/IEP

You can access these forms by going to the Jackson Local School District Website, under the Parents Drop Down. You will then go to Forms and Documents, Health Forms. Under this you will find the Prescription Medication Form, along with paperwork for Action Plans Asthma, Allergies, Seizures and Diabetes, and forms required for Students to Self Carry Inhalers and Epi-pens.


If you have any questions, please contact the nurse at 330-830-8034

***8th Grade Cedar Point Trip***

Arrive at JMMS as you normally would for a regular school day (bus rider, parent drop-off, etc.) at the normal time and report to the Gold Gym. Students should not go to breakfast, but should report directly to the Gold Gym. Buses are scheduled to depart at approximately 8am.

ATTENTION: 8th Graders Going to Cedar Point

Please see the below information from Cedar Point regarding money and purchases in the park:


At Cedar Point, We're Cashless!


Faster. Easier. Safer. The Best Way To Pay.


At Cedar Point, we want you to have an effortless time with your friends and family. That’s why we've moved to all cashless payments throughout the park. Simply swipe or tap your credit card, debit card or smart device with Apple Pay or Google Pay where you would normally use cash. It’s faster, safer and always secure.


No card? No problem! At our Cash-to-Card Kiosks, you can convert your cash into a prepaid debit card you can use anywhere – not just inside the park - with no fees. It’s easy and FREE!


What type of payments do Cedar Point and Cedar Point Shores accept?

VISA, Mastercard, Discover and American Express credit cards and most debit cards are accepted for payment. We also accept Apple Pay and Google Pay. The parks have multiple Cash-to-Card kiosks located throughout to allow you to convert your cash to a prepaid card with no fee. Leftover funds can be used anywhere VISA is accepted.


Is there a fee to use the Cash-to-Card kiosk?

There are no fees to convert your cash to a prepaid card and no fees to use the card in or outside the park. As long as the card is used regularly, no monthly fees will apply. After 92 consecutive days of no transaction activity, however, a $3.95 fee will be charged each month.


How much cash can I load onto a prepaid card?

Up to $500 can be loaded on a card. Minimum amount is $5.


Can I reload the prepaid card from the Cash-to-Card kiosk?

Prepaid cards are not reloadable.


Where can I use the prepaid card from the Cash-to-Card kiosk?

Cards can be used anywhere Visa is accepted.


How can I check the balance on my prepaid card?

The balance on the prepaid card can be checked at a Cash-to-Card kiosk, online at RCbalance.com or by calling the number found on the back of the card.


Why is the park going card-only or cashless?

By going cashless, we are able to conduct contact-less transactions, and it’s faster, safer and always secure.


What should I do if the Cash-to-Card kiosk takes my cash but does not dispense a card?

The kiosk will provide you with a receipt. Take the receipt to Guest Services near the Front Gate. The Guest Services team will work with the kiosk provider to verify the error and then load the funds onto a prepaid card.
