(Students last day of school will remain May 23rd)
All school districts must be “open for business” or engaged in educational activities at least 1,116 hours. Seniors are entitled to 1,086 hours, and preschoolers 465 hours.
To reach the 1,116 hours for students at JES we will increase the minutes per day teachers and students are engaged in educational activities. Therefore, starting Monday, May 6th ALL JES students will start instruction at 8:00 am compared to the normal start time of 8:10. If you transport your child and they plan to eat breakfast, it begins at 7:30 AM. All Bus routes will run the same schedule. Afternoon dismissal time will remain the same. (3:10 for the car line – 3:25 for the buses)
Preschoolers are entitled to 465 hours of instruction. To achieve those hours, we need to make up 2 days of instruction both AM & PM sessions. Those make up days will be May 17th & May 20th.
Except for the Seniors the JLHS schedule will not be affected. Seniors at JLHS will have all day of instruction Thursday May 9th, graduation practice and finals preparation on Friday, May 10th, and one make up day on May 13th where students will take their final exams.
