Meet the Teacher and Kindergarten Orientation are earlier.
All grades Meet the Teacher - Thursday, August 20th.
Kindergarten: 4:30-5:00 pm, Grades 1-5: 4:30-5:30 pm
The Jackson Computer Lab will be available during Meet The Teacher.
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.
Expect your student to come home with lots of paperwork. Please complete ALL the forms and return them as soon as possible.
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.
Lunch lines move slower the first week as students get into the routine. Con- sider sending a lunch instead of buying.
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.
Each year the district shall obtain the criminal history record of prospective volunteers who will be working with students, including mentors, tutors, field trip sponsors, any volunteers who will have access to student information, and volunteers who work on a regular basis with students.
Click here to apply today. All volunteers must reapply after July 1 of each year to be considered for volunteer opportunities.
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
