Holiday Assistance for Our Families
5th Grade Performance December 5th at 6:00
If you are interested in signing up for My Payments Plus, you can register online. If you go to the JAE App, click the bottom right Cafe button. Then click My Payments Plus. You can also find a link for My Payments Plus on the JAE Website under Cafe. This has been a lifesaver for me! Whenever my son's account gets low, I am automatically charged. I can log in any time to see how much money he has, and I can designate how the money can be spent.
If at any time your family needs meal benefits or assistance, we are more than happy to help you. Please contact us.

Please Arrive On Time
Our school day begins promptly at 8:40 a.m. It is very important that students are in their classrooms, ready to begin the day by 8:40. Lately, we have had more and more students arriving after 8:40 in the car rider line. This disrupts the start of instruction.
Beginning immediately, students that come through the doors after 8:40 am will need to be signed in by a parent or guardian and will be counted tardy. If tardies become excessive, a referral to our truancy office will be made.
As a courtesy, our doors open at 8:00 each morning. Please make plans to leave early enough to be through the car rider line in time for students to begin their day at 8:40.
After we get some prices, we will have the kids vote on the new equipment they'd like. We hope to get ball rolling as quickly as possible. Look for frequent updates!

Please Include Information on Bus Notes
If you need to sign your child out, please try to be in the office as close to 3:00 as possible. You may have to park on the side of the building closest to Gallatin Road. You may even have to park in the grass. You will notice that both lanes of the car rider line will be full, and you will get stuck if you try to drive around to the front parking lot. You are encouraged to allow plenty of time to make it to the front office to sign your child out before 3:15.
Field Trip Chaperones
1 Lunch Visit Per Week, Goodbyes at the Cafe Door
You will need to sign in with our Lobby Guard in the front office upon arriving. It is helpful to have your license ready. Federal Nutrition Guidelines prohibit bringing outside restaurant or fast food items to share with your child during lunch.
When your child gets to the cafeteria, you may accompany him/her through the cafe line (if needed,) and sit at one of the tables in the cafeteria lobby. There is not enough room in the cafeteria to accommodate all of our students and guests.
After lunch, please say your goodbyes at the cafeteria door. We ask that visitors do not accompany students back to the classroom.
Fridays are SUPER busy days for lunch visitors, so if possible, you may want to try another day. I visited with my child on Wednesday, and there was PLENTY of space. :)
