This is the link to the semester exam schedule. Exams may not be taken early for any reason, unless specified on a child's 504 or IEP. Leaving early for vacation is not an acceptable reason; the exam will need to be taken upon return from break.
COMMUNITY CAREER SHOWCASE: VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
VISION AND HEARING SCREENING
The Ohio Department of Health requires that all students in grades 9 and 11 be screened for vision and hearing. For the 2022-2023 school year, Vision and hearing screenings for 11th grade will be conducted during their English classes and 9th grade vision and hearing screenings will be conducted during World History. Screenings are to be completed by December 2022.
The vision screening will test distance visual acuity, and the hearing screen will test conductive hearing loss. Parents/Guardians will be notified by mail of any failures for both vision and hearing screenings.
Please remember that if you forget your student ID badge, you will need to report to the TLC immediately to get a temporary badge for the day. Students who forget their badge on multiple occasions will be given consequences.
Thank you for helping us in our efforts to keep our building safe and secure by wearing your ID badge at all times. Thank you!
IF ELIGIBLE PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO FILL OUT AND TURN IN THE FREE AND REDUCED LUNCH FORM
JACKSON LOCAL SCHOOLS BACKPACK PROGRAM
We are pleased to be able to offer The Backpack Food Program, in partnership with RiverTree Jackson. This is a service for families in the Jackson Local School district with students in K-12. The goal of this program is to send home a variety of easy, ready-to-eat meals and snacks for your child to have over the weekend. There is absolutely no cost to our families to join this program. The bags will be delivered to your child’s school weekly, and sent home with students on the last day of the week that students are in school, usually Fridays.
Our first distribution will take place on Thursday, September 8. You may choose to participate at any time, but registration is needed by the Thursday of the week before, so for the first week, the deadline would be on Thursday, September 1.
This program is intended for families whose children are eligible for free/reduced meals. However, we understand some families may not be eligible for the free/reduced meal program, but are still in need of food. If you would like to opt in, please fill out the google form linked below (one for each student). Please know, all information you share with us is kept in the strictest confidence.
