Back-to-School Family Guide

Please take a few minutes to read the Back-to-School Family Guide. Inside, you will find lots of information to help you and your child prepare for the start to the school year, including: links to school supply lists, information about bus transportation, a link to the WJCC route finder, and information about drop-off and pick-up procedures.


For your convenience, you can find the Family Guide on the JBB website.

Shh... It's a Surprise!

Calling all JBB students and families! We need your help. We would like to surprise our teachers with a special welcome message when they return to school in August. Please click on the Flip Grid link below and help your child record a message telling their teachers why they are so special. We will share these messages with teachers when we kick off the 2022-23 school year!
