Back To School


Note from the Principal - Mr. Haire

On behalf of the Jardine Middle School Faculty I would like to welcome back all new and returning Jardine Jaguars. We are excited to begin the 2021-22 school year at Jardine Middle School. We are happy to announce that all classes this year will be in person classes. Families interested in online classes will need to enroll at Avondale Academy. If you have questions or need assistance please contact our main office at 730-8100.

Be sure to watch for district communication regarding any covid protocol requirements for schools and students. The TPS Board of Education will make final covid reopening decisions at the August 5th meeting. This will include any masks/PPE requirements. We will also keep you informed through social media.

Topeka Public Schools and Jardine MS have a new website interface. Our school website is still under construction as we are learning how to edit it. Our calendar is up to date however. We appreciate your patience as we continue to get our site up and running. We also have a few new faces joining our staff. We look forward to greeting all families at our Meet the Teacher Night in August.

Mark your calendars for the first day of school. All 6th graders report to school on Wednesday, August 11th. All students report for school on Thursday, August 12th. Student schedules will be finalized and posted in TylerSIS this week. Bus Schedules are available in your TylerSIS account on August 3rd. Below, you will find the JMS student handbook for your reference.

School hours are 7:50 am to 2:45 pm. Our front doors open to all students at 7:15 a.m. Students who walk or who are car riders use our front drive and doors. Bus riders will enter through the south gym parking doors.


Topeka Public Schools will begin the year with existing covid protocols in place as last year. Students will sit one per seat unless with a sibling. Masks will be required to ride. Approved students who live 1.75 miles from the school qualify for busing services. Only students who qualify for busing will be allowed to ride the bus. Friends are not allowed to ride regular bus riders. Bus riders must use the bus stops provided by the transportation department. Bus routes will be posted in TylerSIS beginning August 2rd Please remember busing services are a privilege for students who qualify and students are expected to follow all bus expectations in our student handbook.
