Weiss HS Homecoming
We would like to invite JCES students to join the Weiss Football Family Thursday, Sep. 30th for Homecoming. The students will have free entry but the parents will have to purchase a ticket (link provided this week). WHS will bring T-shirts for the kids to purchase if interested Thursday morning for $10. The students will be allowed to go in the locker room during pre-game and also run through the tunnel with the team.
Date: Thursday, September 30th
Location: The PField. Students will meet in front of the concession stand closest to the locker room.
Uniform: Weiss shirt, Carpenter Shirt or black shirt
This event is hosted by the WHS coaching staff, not JCES.
Free Breakfast and Lunch for all Students!
This year ALL students will have access to free breakfast and lunch, regardless of economic need. The free breakfast and lunch opportunity will expire for the 2022-23 year; families that may qualify for free/reduced lunch should still complete the application this year so that services are not disrupted when this program ends. Please the Food and Child Nutrition Services page for the Free & Reduced Meals Applications (or click here). Please take a moment to complete the application!
