Weekly Update For 11/22/21

Dear JMS Parents,

Here are the important dates and information for the week:

  • This is a short week.  Wednesday is a half day, and dismissal is at 11:15am.  The students will have Thursday and Friday off for Thanksgiving break.

  • This trimester, tardies will be enforced, per the handbook:

    • Four unexcused tardies to a class during a twelve-week marking period will result in a verbal warning, conference with the principal, and parent notification.  The fifth, sixth and seventh unexcused tardy to a class during a twelve-week marking period will result in the student serving a lunch detention.  Upon reaching an eighth tardy to a class during a twelve-week marking period, the student will receive a four hour Saturday detention.

  • The 6th grade class won our canned food drive with over 200 cans donated!  Congratulations and thank you to all who donated!!

  • Sports:

    • Boys basketball, Monday, Nov. 22nd, Away at Reading

      • 7th @6:00PM

      • 8th @7:00PM 

  • Girls basketball and boys wrestling will start in January.  You may want to schedule a physical sooner, rather than later, due to the holidays if you’re interested in playing.

  • After school tutoring and athletic study hall will be available every Tuesday and Thursday from 2:50-3:50.  Any student wishing to attend may show up as long as they bring work.  Athletes will know in advance if they must attend.  *Students cannot remain in the school past 4pm, and should have transportation available after tutoring.

  • If your child is absent from school due to an illness or appointment, please call the office in the morning and let us know 517-849-3210.

  • Students who are quarantined are required to complete all classwork while they are away from school.  Your teacher should have Google Classroom or Schoology set up to deliver all assignments and instruction.  Failure to complete assignments on time will result in a lowered grade.  If you are sick, please let your teacher know so an exception can be.

  • During sporting events, please talk with your child and remind them to stay off of the baseball and softball fields.  This is especially problematic during football games.  There is an area behind the bleachers where the students can play.  We are trying to keep the softball fields from any damage during construction.

  • Masks are optional in school, however, if you ride the bus, they are required the entire time you are on the bus.
