In conjunction with a program educating the students, I am asking parents and caregivers to assist the school in creating a safe walking environment for our students.
Remember, Moffett Street is a two-way street. At no time are you permitted to drive on the wrong side of the road, especially over the Cross Walk.
Please keep the cross walk clear particularly during the busy dismissal time.
When stopping for students using the Cross Walk, please allow space so that students are able to watch for moving vehicles in both directions.
If you see that a vehicle may be endangering a student, please use your horn to alert them. While it may be loud, it is more important to make the driver aware and alert the pedestrians to danger.
Remember, child safety should always come first. Please don’t put your child or your neighbor’s child in an unsafe situation for convenience sake.

All district athletic forms will now be entered electronically with FamilyID with the exception of the physical and health history form, which will need to be filled out by the parent and signed by a physician.
All physical forms need to be signed after June 1, 2013 to be eligible to participate in athletics during the 2013-14 school year. These forms can be found on the District Website. Completed forms should be turned into the JMS nurse’s office.
The district has also instituted a new pay for participation fee this year, which can be paid through FamilyID as well. There are sections of the registration form that require both a parent/guardian and student athlete to respond.
Have a look at what's new and exciting in the JMS Writing Lab for the 2013-14 school year!
