J. William Leary Junior High School

Update and Information


Important upcoming dates include:

  • February 22 + 23 7th grade remote Family Consumer science students/8th-grade mainstream remote child material pick up

Drop off and pick up needs to happen in the parent loop off of Highland Park. A few cars are parking on School Street creating a tough and potentially dangerous situation for our bus drivers and your child(ren).

All students attending in person must complete the health screening app.

Just a reminder that each student needs to have a “Daily screening form” filled out BEFORE coming into the school.

We have three options:

  • Download + fill out the app-->,
  • This is also a link to an online version of the app http://bit.ly/JWLScreen,
  • Children can get the pink forms from the nurse to bring in each day.

If there are any questions regarding this procedure please call the office 315-764-3720 or the nurse (Nurse Gilman) at 315-764-3720 ext. 3203.

Lunch Pick Up

Did you know that on Mondays you can pick up 7-day meal packs for all students you have enrolled at the Massena Central School Districts? You can pick the packs up at any school in the Massena Central School District, including here at JW Leary on Mondays after 11!

The packs are at no cost to you and you do not need to call ahead. Pull into the parent loop and let us know how many students you have!

As a part of the Nutrition Hubs Grant, this is a survey to families in the Massena Community about their participation in the school meal program.

Mrs. Deshaies covers linear and exponential graphs with students.
