Weekly Update For 04/11/22

Dear JMS Parents,

Here are the important dates and information for the week:

  • Welcome back from spring break!  We hope you are rested and ready to go!

  • Testing for 8th grade PSAT Reading, Writing and Math will be this Wednesday, April 13th.  8th grade parents, it is crucial that:

    • Your child has a good breakfast the morning of the test.

    • Your child gets a good night's sleep before the test.

    • You talk with your child about the importance of doing their best on this test.

    • Your child gets to school on time, as this is a timed test and will have to make up the test at a different day/time if they are late or absent on this day.

  • There is no school this Friday, April 15th.

  • We are trying to keep the softball and baseball fields free from any damage during construction. Please talk with your child and remind them to stay off of the fields after school hours.   There is an area behind the bleachers, or the park at Wright St. where the students can play.

  • Comets! Our “One Comet Library” all-access library that gives all the students in our district access to the materials of all 3 school libraries and the Jonesville District Library (JDL) is up and running. Each student will be given a card number that will enable them to check one item out at a time from JDL in addition to what they check out at their school. The JDL books that are checked out will be available at their school. The JDL will not have access to student information. Families are also welcome to visit JDL and check materials out at their location as well.

  • Sports:

  • 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.
