Greetings Clipper Nation!

The time has finally arrived, students will return to school this week. I am so excited to see everyone. Please take time to review the dates and information in the message below.


To help your student have a successful first day, please make sure you check the bus link in the message. This will help ensure that you know what bus the student will ride, where they will be picked up, and what time.


Just a reminder, the only students who come on the 6th are first-time 9th graders. 9th graders should be dressed appropriately for school and outdoor activities. The JMB staff have worked hard to make the first day memorable. We want students to love JMB as much as we do.


Laptop pick-up will be available between 4-6 on the 6th for upperclassmen. All other laptops will be distributed on Wednesday the 7th during students' specials classes.


Please note that administration will be out in the building as much as possible. This means that if you call for us, we may not be able to respond until after students leave.


Lastly, if your student has a first period at another school, they need to be on the back bus ramp boarding the transfer bus before 7:35 on Wednesday.
