  • Good evening Vikings, This Is Mr. Lewis with your weekly announcements.
    September is quickly coming to an end as we look forward to everything that October will bring. Students are seemingly settling into a routine and we appreciate you encouraging them to be on time to their classes, be engaged, and be inquirers.

    Seniors who are interested in taking the SAT for the first time or those who would like to retake it must use this link to sign up. The test will take place on October 13 at JHS. Check your senior newsletter for the link to sign up!

    Homecoming will be held on October 15, 2021. If you are a JHS alumni, we also invite you to attend this game!! The parade will begin at Walmart at 6:00 pm. The football game will begin at 7:00 pm with the Homecoming Court winners announced at halftime. The Homecoming Dance will be held on Saturday October 16 from 8:00-11:00 pm. All guests must have a form completed. These forms can be found in each grade office.

    JHS is a closed campus. This means that once the bell rings for the start of school, students are to remain on campus until the final bell rings at 2:17 unless you have permission from a parent, or your schedule includes going to work, the Career Center, or college classes. Furthermore, we do not allow students to have food delivered from local restaurants via DoorDash or any other food service.

    If you or your child are not feeling well, are awaiting a COVID-19 test result, are symptomatic, and/or are in close contact with a positive individual….PLEASE STAY HOME. Thank you to our families who have been following these guidelines.

    Good luck to all of our athletes competing this week. Weekly athletic schedules are emailed each week from our Viking Athletic department.

  • Good Evening Vikings. This is Mr. Lewis with your weekly announcements. We were so excited to have students in the building this last week and are looking ahead to another great week. The building was hot and yet we saw eager smiling faces ready to learn throughout the building.

    This week will be a shorter one due to the Labor Day holiday celebration. There will be no school this Friday or Monday of next week and students will return to campus on Tuesday September 7th.

    We need to remind students and parents that our dress code calls for students to be dressed appropriately. We understand it is warm in the building but that does not mean that we abandon our dress code for both young men and young ladies. I need to make a special mention here. Head coverings are not allowed at school, this includes hats, hoodies, scarves and doo rags. Please leave these items at home or in your lockers.
    Also, shorts should be mid thigh in length and shirts should not be exposing midriffs, cleavage or have open backs. Please refer to the student handbook to better understand our student dress codes and social expectations.

    I want to remind all students that we are a closed campus. This means that once the bell rings for the start of school, students are to remain on campus until the final bell rings at 2:19 unless you have permission from a parent. Furthermore, we do not allow for students to have food delivered from local restaurants via DoorDash or any other food service.

    The plan is to pass out ChromeBooks tomorrow during their first hour. Your student will only be issued a Chromebook if we have a signed parent agreement form on file. Agreement forms have been sent home with students on Thursday of last week and we also emailed this electronic link JHS Consent Agreement. If you have not completed this form please do so this evening.

    JPS is pleased to inform you that we have partnered with the Center for Family Health (CFH) to offer a free Covid-19 Vaccination Clinic on Thursday, September 2nd from 12-4 pm at JHS for your student(s) 12 and older. The Pfizer Vaccine will be administered by the CFH medical staff at their Center located at Jackson High. The Pfizer Vaccine requires two doses and the second dose will be scheduled two weeks from the first vaccination at the same location.

    You do not need to be in attendance with your student when receiving their vaccination. Please use this link to let us know if you are interested in this opportunity.

    If you are interested in having your student vaccinated and they are under 18, we will need you to fill out these four (4) forms attached and send them with your student to school prior to Thursday:

    1. CFH COVID Registration Form
    2. CFH COVID Vaccination Consent Patient
    3. CFH JCMR Authorization Form
    4. CFH Treatment Agreement Form

    At JPS we believe the best defense in mitigating the spread of COVID-19 is the COVID-19 Vaccine. However, COVID-19 Vaccinations are voluntary, and if you are not interested in having your student vaccinated you do not need to do nothing at this time.

    Morning Motivation:
    Students and staff please use this link to share your favorite songs as we will be using them in the mornings.

The newsletter is frequently updated throughout the week, as well as posts to our social media page and app. We encourage you to check these platforms regularly during the week to receive important updates. Thank you for your support of JPS. Have a great rest of your weekend and remember it is always a great day to be a Viking!
