1) Students need to wear a wristband every day to show that the Daily Health Certification has been completed and the student does not have COVID symptoms.

2) Students must bring a charged school laptop to school each day. We have very limited opportunities for students to charge devices during the school day.

3) Cell phones need to stay in backpacks and purses, powered off (or with the ringer off). Students are not allowed to wear headphones outside of class requirements (hallways, etc).

In addition, wallet chains, wrist or neckbands with spikes or protruding objects are not allowed.


The 5Essentials Survey identifies five indicators that lead to improved outcomes for all students. The survey is administered to families, students and staff. The 5Essentials survey generates valuable data that districts can use to guide their ongoing efforts to improve schools and to offer students an excellent education. The survey is another improvement tool that allows districts and the state to share data as a means to inform parents and community members about the school’s learning environment.

Please take a few minutes to complete the 5Essentials Parent Survey. The links are below. James Hart Students will complete the survey during Advisory on Friday, March 19th.


Families of 8th-grade students will receive information soon about plans to celebrate the Class of 2021. We will not be able to have a traditional graduation ceremony due to safety mitigations, but we plan to make the end of 8th grade very special for the Class of 2021.

Please look for information soon on how to pay for graduation gowns and Class of 2021

t-shirts and sweatshirts.


To ensure that your student’s school-issued device registers the time change, please have your student turn on his/her device Sunday and then restart it once or twice.
If you wait to do this Monday morning, your student may not be able to enter his/her Monday Zoom classes on time.

If you have questions or experience any issues, please submit a request for tech support here.
