Schoolwork First is an opportunity to reward students who turn in all of their homework, on time, in every class. This list is turned in to the office at the end of each marking period. Students who are on the Schoolwork First list for the marking period, receive a pass to get out of class at first bell for lunch during the following marking period. Students are also awarded at the end of the year with certificates from the high school principal.
A few Nuts and Bolts:
Early/Middle College: JLHS is looking at options to start an Early College program that would allow students (beginning with current Freshman) an opportunity to earn an Associates of Arts Degree. Students would “sign on” for 5 years of high school, with the 5th year being entirely college centered. Through targeted scheduling, students would complete their high school diploma and receive an AA degree through NCMC at the end of their 5th year. More to come on this…
Cell Phones: We understand that it is a technological world and we are looking at modifications to our policies for next year. But under the current policy, please help remind your son/daughter that if their cell phone is seen or heard during the school day they face the risk of having it taken away and a parent needing to come and get it.
Text Alerts: Parents and students have an opportunity to receive texts or emails when school is cancelled or delayed, as well as receiving a variety of other area information by signing up for text alerts HERE. This site sponsored through the “PhoneGuide” is FREE to sign up!
JLAS Website: The technology world is a beautiful thing, but please do not hesitate to call a teacher or myself if you have any concerns or questions. Our website, http://www.jlas.org/, is a great source for information but it does not always give you everything you need to know. Please don’t forget the personal side of things when it comes to your kids and their grades, activities and progress as a student at JLHS.
Your student’s locker assignment and combination are located on their schedule. To avoid the loss or theft of items placed in lockers, it is important that students keep their lockers locked at all times and do not share their combination with anyone. Please report any locker problems to the office immediately so repairs can be made in a timely manner. Students are not permitted to share lockers with other students. Periodic locker inspections will take place throughout the year. Please remind your student to bring their schedule to school on the first day if they wish to access their locker prior to the “all school assembly”. The office will not pass out combinations on the first day, as the students will receive a copy of their schedule with their locker information in the class meetings.
Dual Enrollment/Released Time Students:
Students who have dual enrollment or released time are not expected to be in the building during this time. For school security reasons, if a dual enrollment/release time student must remain in the building they will report to media center and sign in. Students are not allowed to roam the building or be unsupervised.
Students will receive their student handbook on the first day of school. Students are required to carry their handbook with them at all times. I strongly encourage parents and students to sit down together to review the student handbook, as there have been many updates, changes and modifications. Students are expected to comply with the student dress code policy beginning with the first day of school. A replacement fee of $10 will be charged for lost handbooks.
Maintaining open communication between the home and the school is the most valuable indicator of student success at school. Parents are encouraged to contact their student’s teachers or the office if they have any questions or concerns regarding their student’s education. Shortly after school starts, we will send home information about how parents can access their student’s grades on the internet through Power School (Parent Portal). The office sends out daily announcements to parents through a listserv. If you would like to receive this information on a daily basis, please provide the office with your email address.
We expect all JLHS students to try their very best at all times. We also expect students to complete all their assignments and to seek help from teachers when they don’t understand a lesson or assignment. We will mail home progress reports for any student who is failing a class approximately every two weeks. It is critical that your student attend school every day unless they are truly ill. Once a student falls behind in their schoolwork, it is difficult to catch up. As we approach the start of school, it is important that students re-establish a more structured routine that is typical during the school year. It is crucial that a high school student get adequate sleep each night, and that they have a suitable area at home to study and complete their homework. Now would also be a good time for parents and students to sit down to establish goals and expectations for the coming school year.
If you have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to contact me at 731-4420 (extension 244).
We look forward to a fun and exciting year at Johannesburg-Lewiston High School.
