Drop Off for School - Update

Due to past safety concerns, we are changing the traffic patterns. There are 3 main changes.
1. The front of the building will only be used for student drop-off or pick-up. There will be a traffic cone zone area for drop-off and pick-up.
2. The diagonal spaces in front should only used for parents that are escorting their students into or out of the building.
3. The staff will be using the East parking lot to create less congestion in the front of the building.
Thank you making John Long a safer place!

This year JLMS will be focusing on instructional strategies to improve student achievement.  This decision has directly impacted scheduling.  Class period passing times will be updated tonight in the school information system and ready for view in Family Access on Saturday, August 30. 

            Current Structure:

Communication / Language Arts is an 88-minute block.

Math is now an 88-minute block.

6th and 7th grade science and social studies will be blocked and the courses will be alternate days.

Lunch is 30 minutes.

An optional snack will be allowed in the morning and staff will work with students on the exact time.

Band will be on Day 2 for 6th and 7th grade

Band will be on Day 1 for 8th grade.

Choir will be on Day 1 for 6th and 7th grade

Choir will be on Day 2 for 8th

The alternate day of band and choir will be WIN.

WIN is the Intervention / Extension period.

WIN has the capability to be flexible and it has low class size to support learning.

All 8th grade student electives were honored.

Everyone’s schedule has additional educational opportunities.


Please, attend the Open House on September 11th to experience the schedule and meet the teachers.
