Hello JES Families: Tomorrow is the first day of school so I am sending out a few reminders and information about parent pickup and walkers. 1. If your child is on parent pickup, you need to get in the parent pick up line. We will be providing name cards for those students that are on parent pick up daily and we will not be releasing students to parents that walk up to the gym door. Please call in before 2pm if you need to add your child to parent pick up. 2. Only students that live in the walking zone will be allowed on the walker list. We will be reviewing addresses. 3. If your address is within the walking zone, your child is not rostered to a bus. If you are not comfortable with your child walking home, please make arrangements to have a responsible adult meet them where the walkers are released, or contact the school to arrange for your child to be held for parent pick up and then you will need to join the parent pick up line and your child will be released to you when your car pulls up to the building. Our #1 priority is the safety of your child, so I hope everyone understands the importance of these procedures. Here's to a GREAT YEAR @ JES!!!

Attention Juniata County School District Parents: In an effort to communicate with parents of absent students and minimize errors, the school district will begin to utilize an automated call system to inform parents on days that their child was marked absent. If you ever feel that there is an error, please call your child’s school office. Also, please remember parents have 3 days to turn in an excuse and may feel free to email any excuse to the attendance secretary at their home school. Thank you.
