2020-21 Start of School Year Update
Welcome to the 2020-21 School Year
September 1st Schedule Change for 6th Graders and Virtual Students
We are developing the schedule for the afternoon for our virtual students to attend so we can have them connect with their teachers, troubleshoot any technology hiccups, and learn what the expectations are for them to successfully participate in their virtual learning process. Additional communication will be sent out as we finalize the afternoon schedule for virtual students.
We will also reach out to any new 7th and 8th grade students to JLMS and bring them in during the morning to welcome them, have the learn about JLMS and provide support in their transition to a new school.
Essential Supplies that in-person Students Need
- Headphones or earbuds to use with their Chromebook
- Face coverings (the district has 2 that they will supply for each in-person student)
In addition, the district has lanyards for each student that they can attach to their face coverings to assist in keeping it on their body when they take a mask break.
Process if student shows symptoms of COVID
Parents are asked to asses the health of their child at home each morning. If a student is ill, do not send them to school. However, if a student fells well enough to attend virtually, they may do so. Attendance protocols will be adjusted this year to accommodate a higher volume of absences.

We will continue to send updated information out about the school year as final decisions are made. We want to thank our families, staff, and community for coming together during this time to prepare for a successful reopening of schools. Enjoy the last weeks of summer!
