JLMS Welcomes You!
Published on Aug 30, 2013 15:24

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Tuesday marks the start of the school year and we could not be more excited about our students coming back to John Long!

Here is some important information about our first day back...

All students will have academic advisory in the MORNING this year from 8:05-8:25 each day. Advisors will coach, set goals, get to know your student, and help them navigate all things middle school. Your child's advisor is being finalized and they will officially know their advisors the first day of school - some are going to change from the names indicated on the original schedules you have received. This is due to enrollment shifts and students adding to JLMS in the last few weeks.

Please plan on your child arriving at school anytime between 7:45 and 8:05. They should report to one of two spaces - 6th Grade report to Small Gym, 7/8 grade report to the Cafeteria. Advisors will meet up with students. All advisor classes will be posted with student names on the walls so students can find their advisor. 

School supplies will be collected by your child's advisor. 

News schedules will be issued on the first day of school due to some staff changes and course alteration/requests to alter. 

Phy Ed uniforms can be purchased during the first week of school for $13 ($9 for shorts and $4 for shirts). The uniforms are recommended, but not required as long as your student has black athletic shorts and a white shirt for class. 

Water bottles are strongly encouraged as long as it is WATER only in the bottles. Please label the bottles as they sometimes get misplaced. 

We have a buzzer system now for security purposes throughout the entire school district! We hope that you understand as we try to protect our wonderful community of learners. Please buzz in and feel free to visit, just please stop in the office first and sign in. 

If your child needs to talk about his or her schedule, they should find time to talk with Mrs. Brady about any questions that they may have.

Enjoy your last weekend of summer!

Respectfully yours,

Michael Leach
