Getting Ready for 2020-2021
We are aware of anxiety caused by transitioning to a new school, especially since we were not able to host our incoming 6th grade student orientation and step up night for families as we normally would. 6th Grade Orientation will have its own day at the end of the summer, on Thursday, August 13. On this day, we will have students move through their schedule with a parent. 7th & 8th grade orientation will be Friday, August 14.
Yearbooks - Still Available
The JCMS Yearbooks for 2019-20 looked amazing. Students that didn't order one can still get one by using the link and access code information below.
Access code is YB105653.

Materials Needed for New Out of Town Student Enrollment
Certified Birth Certificate
Proof of Residence
This MUST be a current (within the last month) electric, water or gas bill.
The proof of residence must be in the name of the parent or legal guardian or relative with whom you are residing.
If you are residing with someone, a notarized statement signed by a friend/relative with whom you and your children are residing is required. The friend/relative must also provide a proof of residence.
Photo identification of parent/legal guardian
School Transfer Sheet or Last Report Card
A last report card is required for summer enrollments.
Custody papers, if applicable
The legal guardian/custodian is the person or agency that has been awarded legal custody of the student (s) by a judge in a court of law. A notarized Power of Attorney will not be accepted to transfer custody. Legal guardians/custodians will need to provide court ordered custody papers at the time of enrollment. If you do not have custody papers, you will be referred to the Student Services department at the County Office.
Students are to be enrolled in their school assignment areas (Policy 4150). Parents/legal guardians may apply for out of district placement should extenuating circumstances exist. This process must be completed at the County Office via Student Services. Reassignments must be approved by the Superintendent or the Superintendent's designee.
Band/Orchestra Instrument Selection - Incoming 6th Grade
We have a special instrument tryout event, scheduled for Monday, August 3, from 3:00 to 6:00 pm, so 6th grade students can come play all the instruments and choose one they love best.
7th Grade Students - Get Your Shots Over the Summer
The state of North Carolina requires all 7th grade students to have proof of an updated vaccination record on file. Two vaccinations are required at this time - a tetanus booster (often referred to as TDaP) and the meningitis vaccine (MCV4). All students are required to have these vaccinations completed prior to 9/14/2020 or they will not be able to attend school until written proof of vaccinations are received in our office. Additionally, a North Carolina Health Assessment is required for all students K-12 entering NC schools for the first time.
Both the assessment and the immunizations can be completed at the Onslow County Health Department located at 612 College St. in Jacksonville. Please call (910) 347-2154 to schedule an appointment if the health assessment is needed. If your child only requires the updated vaccinations, the Onslow County Health Department has a walk-in immunization clinic with posted clinic hours Monday-Wednesday and Friday from 8 AM - 3:30 PM and Thursdays from 9 AM - 6:30PM. Please take your child’s most current immunization record to the clinic as this may be required before vaccinations are given.
