COVID Guidance for this school year

  • If you are feeling sick, stay home
  • If you test POSITIVE for COVID, please notify Janet Radtke in our Attendance Office and stay home for 5 days. 283-6510 ext 5102
  • Students may return to school on or after DAY 6 if they have NEGATIVE test result, no fever, and improved symptoms.

We have home tests available for students in the office

When your QJSHS student is out for 3-14 days

Hello Trojans Families,
The first two weeks of school brought its fair share of positive covid cases to our campus and in an effort to prepare for the school year we are asking our parents/guardians to submit, via ParentSquare, an electronic form titled, "Independent Study Master Agreement, 3-14 Days". This form is used when a student is absent from school 3-14 days because they have been "excluded," are having a family emergency, or have made arrangements with the office in advance to be absent. When electronically "approved" and submitted by you, this will allow your student to count work completed as attendance in school. We are asking all our parents to fill out this now for the school year, in the event your student becomes "excluded" from school.

Thank you,
Jennifer Scheel

  • Students are expected to remain at the dance until 9pm. Leaving prior to 9pm requires parent/guardian permission provided to the school principal, Mrs. Scheel.

  • Backpacks and large bags are not allowed inside the dance.

Daily Student Support

Our Tutorial class runs Tuesday - Friday, with a Homeroom on Mondays. We are using a program called Edficiency to manage and assign Tutorials. One really great feature about this program is students can sign up to attend a specific teacher's tutorial. All the student has to do is log into their Edficiency account the day before and select the teacher of the class they would like to attend. This is a great, built in to the school day, opportunity to get extra help or time on assignments.

Edficiency Login:
