First Week of School - What You Need to Know

TRAFFIC CONGESTION:
Expect the streets around the school to be congested. Most parents (some in two cars) bring their children the first day. Allow extra time to navigate the crowds while driving safely.

PAPERWORK:
Expect your student to come home with lots of paperwork. Please complete ALL the forms and return them as soon as possible.

VISITOR REGISTRATION:
PISD requires all visitors to register and wear a Photo ID Badge while
at school - even to walk a student
to their classroom! The office will
be crowded the first few days so be prepared for a line or consider stopping by school before the first day to register. We are “paws-itively” serious about keeping our students safe.

LUNCHTIME:
Lunch lines move slower the first week as students get into the routine. Con- sider sending a lunch instead of buying.

MEDICATIONS:
Any prescription or over-the-counter medication must be accompanied by a completed medication request form and turned in to the nurse.

DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP:
When picking up, write your child’s name and grade on a piece of paper and place in your passenger window. This will dramatically speed things up until permanent signs are provided. Also, remember to pull up as far as possible in the drive.

Message from Jackson Librarian, Mrs. Walker:

 

Studies indicate that students perform better in the new school year if they continue reading over the summer break.  To help with this endeavor, Library Media is providing the following lists of suggested titles. To find your child's grade level list click here: SUMMERLISTS

Also, Jackson is once again challenging your student to read over the summer with "Tic-Tac-Toe, Read Three in a Row!" For this year's summer challenge, click here: TICTACTOE
