Jasper Parents,


I would like to take this opportunity to make a few friendly updates and reminders as student clothing choices start to change a bit with the warmer weather. We typically see an increase in students out of dress code in the months of May and June. We want to continue partnering with you to keep our students in the classroom and in learning mode. A student who is out of dress code will be sent to the student center where they will need to correct the dress code violation (either with clean clothes we have to change into or a change of clothes from a parent). Students will not be allowed to go back to class until the dress code violation is corrected. We will also issue a reminder announcement to students today. You can find the district dress code in the student handbook, http://tinyurl.com/jenf4g2. Thanks for partnering in this effort.


Sincerely,


Matt Endsley


Families planning on moving over the summer

Are you planning to move over the summer?


If you don’t think you’ll be attending school in Plano ISD in August,


please complete an “Next Year Notification” form. You may pick this form up from Mrs. Morgan at the registrar’s office. Please return the form to Mrs. Morgan by June 3, 2016.


If you are moving to another location within Plano ISD attendance boundaries, you must have an approved transfer to return to Jasper, in August.


If you have already moved and have not updated your address with Jasper, please bring in a current gas or electricity bill to the Counseling office as soon as possible so that we can update your address. Jasper High School mail will be delivered during the summer and we want to be certain that it is being sent to the correct address.

Drug and Alcohol Prevention Information: "Did You Know"

Did you know approximately 25,00 people overdosed and died from prescription drugs in 2014? You can help keep unused and expired prescriptions from being abused. The DEA holds a drug “take back” day where you simply bring any unused or expired medications to a site and drop it off. It is FREE and it is EASY to do! On April 30, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, you can stop by any collection site nearest you and drop off your medications. There will be sites at PSHS, PESH, PWSH and Clark schools this year. I have included the website if you need a site closer to home.

Please consider cleaning out your medicine cabinets and help us fight the battle of prescription drug abuse. Together, we can make a difference!
