Welcome 2021-2022 School Year!

Marshall Rams Reunited!

We are so excited about the start of the new school year. The band is practicing in the courtyard, spirit groups are preparing, and sports are in the gym and on the track/field. ROTC, theater, choir, and orchestra are hosting camps, and our senior mentors are busy preparing to welcome our new freshmen class!


Construction is nearing completion on the new addition and magnet school. Our new facilities are really going to be amazing.


Marshall is a special place, and we look forward to seeing all our Rams in the very near future.


Sincerely,

Susan Cleveland

Principal

John Marshall High School

Important Counseling Update

Scheduling

An important note from the Counseling Department regarding student schedules in HAC. We are aware that students are able to view their schedules in HAC. However, those schedules are not necessarily going to be the same on the first day of school.


Necessary Corrections

We are currently working on Master Schedule changes, and the current schedule in HAC may change. In addition, schedule changes were due in the Counseling Office on June 11th. Therefore, the only schedule changes that will be made are schedule corrections, such as, a student should be in English 1, but has English 2 on their schedule, or is missing a lunch period.


Lunch

The counseling office has been receiving quite a few phone calls regarding student’s assigned lunch period. For the most part, lunch periods are assigned by grade level: 4th period lunch is for 9th graders, 5th period Lunch is for 10th graders and 6th period Lunch is for 11th & 12 grade students. However, a student’s schedule could affect that lunch schedule. For instance, a 10th grade student’s athletic period may be in 3rd period, therefore, their lunch period would be 4th period to allow more time for that student’s practice, opportunity to change clothes, and eat lunch.


Schedule an Appointment

At this time, counselors are registering new students on a daily basis, and are not available for drop in appointments. Please contact them by phone or email, your counselor’s contact information can be found here JMHS/LMS Counseling Department Contact Information or submit this form JMHS/LMS 2021-2022 Request to See Counselor to request see your counselor.

Prep Days August 10th & 11th

Get school started early by getting textbooks, walking your schedule, updating information, and buying your Marshall spirit gear to name a few. The schedule has been adjusted since the "save the date" postcard was mailed due to the positivity rate in San Antonio. We are making an intentional effort to provide social distancing at this event so please acknowledge the assigned times.



Please see the Marshall website for more information JMHS & LMS Prep Day Information. Prep Day will run much more smoothly for students if their Home Access Center (HAC) account has been updated and/or created for students who are new enrollments to Northside ISD. For information on how to update or create a HAC account can be found here Home Access Center (HAC) Information. Student schedules and STAAR scores can be found in their HAC account.
