Principal's Update

August 1, 2020

Dear Families,

I hope this message finds you safe and healthy. I will continue to send a newsletter each week. Some information will remain the same so I will keep it toward the bottom and add new information at the top. Judson ISD will conduct remote learning through at least September 7. With that being said; all students registered on-line will receive a device for remote instruction. Those devices will be given to parents from 3 different locations:

Rolling Meadows Elementary, Wagner High School and JISD PAC Center (right next door to JMS)


Monday-Friday 8 am-7pm

Sat. 8 am-530 pm


NEW AND CURRENT JSTEM Students: We will deploy your devices from JMS closer to start of school.


Lastly, please make sure ALL returning students have registered through our online system. The link is https://www.judsonisd.org/domain/117. If you have any questions about registration, please call the school Monday-Friday from 8am-4pm at 210-357-0801 and ask for Ms. Briceno. We can also schedule an appointment for you to help register. We are calling parents and assisting so that you can complete the registration process.


Please always read the notifications from JISD and always check the JISD website: Return to Learn https://www.judsonisd.org/ReturnToLearn. Updates may be posted faster than my newsletter.


For your cell phone to receive text message alerts from me or the district please text the words "OPT IN" to 875-69. As you register, we are updating the communication system and we don't want anyone to miss out on newsletters or updates.


Please see below an easy way to secure your school supplies online and have them delivered straight to your home. Easy and convenient!


Sincerely,

Dawn Worley

JSTEM Incoming and Returning Students

For all Incoming 6th grade and returning 7th and 8th grade: Chromebook distribution will be done at our campus. Do not go to any locations listed above. We will send specific communication about device pick-up when we have worked out all the details. This will be closer to start of school.

School Supplies

We want to make school supply shopping simple and easy this year and hopefully in all the coming years as well. To better assist you with the school supply list, JMS & JSTEM have partnered with a company that will allow you to shop online and have supplies delivered to your door. One less thing to do and definitely one less store to go! We hope that you will take advantage of this convenience. By staying at home and ordering on-line, you will stay safe!

Please note though that the most important supply for this school year will be internet access for your student. That is the only thing that you cannot get in this package; however, I have included information from the Texas Education Agency about low-cost internet access.

Schedules

We are working with central office and our district counseling team to determine the best way to send students their schedule. As soon as that information becomes available I will send directions about what do do.

Judson Middle School & JSTEM Academy
