Previously, we sent a survey to learn what JPS could do to improve our district’s communication and support. We greatly appreciated everyone’s perspectives and are sending this survey again to collect ongoing feedback.
We are excited to start the 2020-2021 school year with virtual learning. For students who do not have a device for virtual instruction, learning packets will be available for curbside pickup at your child's home school on Monday and Tuesday (August 17th and 18th) from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
If you are unable to pick up your child's packet, please call the school to discuss other arrangements. As a reminder, learning packets are being provided only for those students who do not have a device (laptop, Chromebook, or iPad).
The packets will contain assignments for 5 days (August 17th - 21st) and will need to be returned to the school on Monday, August 24th between the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. The Instructional Work Packets will be graded for accuracy, as well as, used as a daily measurement of engagement (attendance). Teachers will provide students with feedback on the work submitted. At the same time, students will receive a new packet for the following week.
This process will repeat each Monday and is subject to revision as more devices are made available for students.
Again, we are excited for the start of the new year!
