Greetings New Clippers!

I hope the first part of your summer has been wonderful. I know I have enjoyed the slower pace that comes with summer, but I miss the sound of student voices that brings our building to life.


As we near the middle part of July, I wanted to take a moment to welcome you to JMB and introduce myself and a few key staff that will be able to help navigate freshman year. I also want to share a few reminders.


Please review all the information below, and please reach out if you have any questions.


I also hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!

-Notes are due within 5-days of the absence.

-Will accept medical, military, MVA, job interviews, and college visits with supporting documentation for future absences to be excused.

-If a student has reached 5 or more unexcused absences, the student can sign up and attend attendance recovery to avoid earning an E for the term.
