In so many ways, this is an amazing time of the year. Somedays it seems we are seeing COVID more and more from the rearview mirror; other days COVID remains all around us. Please continue daily health screenings, physical distancing in the hallways and classrooms, and keeping the mask on while in school.


Also-if your child is not feeling well, please keep them home.

Monday is a virtual day. All work will be posted in the Google Classrooms.

4th Quarter Orientation

Junior High held an orientation to help students that were learning remotely adjust to attending in person.


A special thank you to JW Leary awesome web leaders Ella M. and Sophia P. who talked about their experiences as students here and took attendees for tours of the building.

The Mohawk Club has rewards for

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE AND IMPROVED PERFORMANCE IN CLASSES; this is sponsored by Title VI,

Earth Day Student Posters

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.
