If Not Me, Then Who...

We're looking forward to implementing this year's building wide theme with the students. The students will learn more about being "others-centered."

First Day of School

On Tuesday, September 3rd, we will welcome all students for their first day of school. All staff members will be wearing our "If Not Me, Then Who..." t-shirts to be easily identified so that we can assist the students. Staff members will take the necessary time to settle the students back into a routine and get them comfortable with their new classmates.

Playground Update

Our playgrounds are under renovation and are beginning to take shape. The Kindergarten playground is getting new swings and new drainage and mulch. On next year's plan, they will receive a new playground structure.

The first - sixth grade playground is also getting new swings, mulch and drainage, and also some stand alone equipment. A new structure has been ordered but won't be put in until November / December.

Lunch Menus


Aramark at Central Bucks has transitioned to a new digital platform called Nutrislice. All of the menus are on this website as well as all nutritional and allergy information. Here is a link to it which can also be found on the Food Services home page of the CBSD website.

https://cbsd.nutrislice.com/menu/jamison-elementary?mode=browse


However, the best way to use Nutrislice is to download the free app to your phone, enter CBSD as the location, and all the school’s menus and important nutritional information is available at your fingertips. It is a great way for parents and students to see what is for breakfast and lunch every day.


Please click on this link for more information regarding Nutrislice and the school menus.

Kiss and Drop

We are in desperate need for a few community members to assist with car rider arrival. We are looking for ONE volunteer (Monday-Friday) to assist with drop-off. Please email me, Mr. Croyle, directly if you can lend a hand. Thank you!

Modified Kindergarten Schedule on Delayed Openings

As we plan for the 2019-2020 school year, we are going to implement a change in our kindergarten schedule on weather delay days.


This past year, our AM kindergarten students missed over eight sessions of kindergarten due to 2-hour delayed starts. When we have a 2-hour delay, the AM kindergarten was essentially “cancelled” for that day.


Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, we will implement a “modified kindergarten” schedule on weather delay days. The schedule will be as follows:


Jamison Kindergarten:

  • AM Students 10:35AM – 12:20PM ("A" School)
  • PM Students 1:30PM – 3:15PM ("A" School)
