From the JMS Nurse

Great news! Did you know that SchoolCare is a program used by the Greater Jasper Consolidated School nurses and follows the medical confidentiality laws governed by the Indiana Department of Health! Please go to your PowerSchool account and log in, scroll down until you find SchoolCare on the left side of the page. Please click on SchoolCare and register your child so that the school nurse will have the current medical information that you choose to share with her. Also, in both the middle school and high school you are able to give consent for the school nurse to administer Tylenol, Ibuprofen, Midol and Tums in case your child would need it during the school day. When you register your student in SchoolCare please be sure to edit in the OTC Medication section if you choose to give consent for your child to have any or all of the above OTC Medications. If you have any questions please contact Mrs. Buschkoetter at 812-481-4855.

Each week of the school year, we will be recognizing two Students of the Week for each grade level. Students are nominated for this recognition by staff members for a variety of reasons. It could be based on Academics, Behavior, Character, or Improvement. All of the nominees are then voted upon by the staff to identify the six winners for that week. This week's winners include:

6th Graders - Kayleigh Davis and Walker Swan

7th Graders - Anna Levin and Caden Swaim

8th Graders - Madison Mauck and Parker Dooley

L4G and Project 13:34

With the seasons changing and temperatures getting cooler, we are sure parents are pulling out the next season's clothes and finding out that their children have outgrown them. Although growth is a fact of life, some families just can't afford to replace the clothing their children have outgrown. LG4 just wants to remind everyone that we are still here and willing to help those families in need. We have attached request forms for your convenience.
