End of the first quarter is fast approaching....

Just a reminder that the end of the first nine weeks is a couple of weeks away (November 10th). A number of students have some missing assignments to still complete. There is still time for students to complete missing work. Please check PowerSchool to find missing assignments, and have your child email their teacher when they have turned the assignment in.

School Store open again.....

SJIS school store is back open in time for Christmas purchases.

November 8th is the new deadline. This is the last time the school store will be open before the holidays, so get your orders in!

Dental pain is often the reason a child misses school. To make your child’s visit to the dentist as easy as possible, Little River Medical Center offers a school-based mobile dental program, Miles for Smiles. Since 2004, our mobile team has traveled throughout the school year to a number of schools in Horry County.

It's not too late to pay the Technology Fee

If your child has already been issued a device and you would like to pay the Tech Fee for insurance purposes, please have student bring the device to Mrs. Guthrie at SJIS. Once she has cleared the device of physical damage she may request the fee be added to that student’s MyPaymentsPlus Account. Please note that if a student has not paid the Tech Fee and the device gets physically damaged while issued to the student they are responsible for full repair costs.

No es demasiado tarde para pagar la Tarifa de Tecnología

Si a su hijo ya se le ha emitido un dispositivo y usted desea pagar la tarifa de tecnología por motivos de seguro, pídale al estudiante que le lleve el dispositivo a la Sra. Guthrie en SJIS. Una vez que haya limpiado el dispositivo de daños físicos, puede solicitar que se agregue la tarifa a la cuenta MyPaymentsPlus de ese estudiante. Tenga en cuenta que si un estudiante no ha pagado la tarifa de tecnología y el dispositivo se daña físicamente mientras se entrega al estudiante, es responsable de los costos totales de reparación.
