I received the following message from a decendant of Jesse Owens, whom which our school is named after.

My name is Yvette Beloney, and I am one of Jesse Owens' Great Granddaughters. I am hosting the 20th Jesse Owens Family Reunion in Chandler, Arizona, July 21-24, 2022.

We wish the family a fantastic family reunion. For further information contact ybeloney@cox.net

JOES Student IDs

We have received a few questions about the IDs on the supply list so I am hoping this will explain.

  • Every student at JOES will be issued an ID. The ID will have the barcode for the cafeteria & library and will also have the students QR code to log into their Chromebook. For example students will scan their ID before getting breakfast & lunch.
  • The classroom teacher will work out the procedures for the wearing of IDs - according to the grade level and need. The teacher will then relay that information to their students/guardians.
  • Lanyards/clips have been purchased.

Uniform Reminders for the 2022-2023 School year

The Vermilion Parish School Board Dress Code Policy will be followed strictly in the 2022-2023 school year. JOES Faculty & Staff have found that uniforms have been pushed to the backburner due to the covid pandemic, hurricanes,... But all agree that we need to get back to following the policy. Since shopping occurs in the summer I felt it important to make a few reminders:

  • Sweatshirts and ¼ zip pullovers 1. Color must be solid navy, white, red, gray, black, or spirit/school team sweatshirts. 2. No emblems, monograms, or contrasting stitching are allowed except for logos/emblems approved by school. 3. Sweatshirts may be worn over polo or oxford during cold weather.
  • Undershirts 1. Color must be solid navy, gray, white, red, or black. 2. Undershirts must be tucked into the uniform bottom.
  • Belts 1. Color must be black, brown, khaki or navy. 2. Belts must be worn at all times in grades 1-12. The entire belt must be worn within the loops.
  • Friday Jean Days will be JEAN ONLY - Shorts will not be allowed. (The only shorts that will be allowed will be uniform shorts)
  • Guidelines for Non-Compliance Failure to comply with the guidelines for dress, appearance, or uniforms will result in parental contact by the school. Further noncompliance may result in one or all of the following: in-school suspension or suspension from school.

If you have any gently used uniforms that no longer fit and you wish to donate them to school please feel free to do so. We keep some on hand for accidents and incidentals. We will have a table available at Meet & Greet for anyone willing to donate/exchange.
