A message from me...
Don't think I could ask for a better two days with such amazing students and staff. I am going to do my best to sneak a nap this weekend hope you do too!
Have a wonderful weekend and we will see you on Monday!
Our first Working Wednesday will be on Aug. 23. Our schedule is adjusted but buses run at the normal time. Students are supervised until the start of school.
JEROME PICTURE DAY IS TUESDAY, AUGUST 22
Students will be called down alphabetically, by grade to get their photo. All students are asked to get a photo for their school ID. There will be a make-up picture day on Thursday, October 5th.
Seniors will take their yearbook photos on Thursday, Oct. 26
HR Imaging will be mailing a bar-coded prepay flyer to each of your students that contains all of the information they need for picture day. The envelope on the flyer actually serves as your personal pre-filled camera card. Students should bring the envelope portion of the flyer to our scheduled picture day. This allow for quick, efficient process.
