Dr. Andrew's Letter to Parents for 2019-2020 School Year

Dear Parent(s),

      We welcome our students to another fantastic year at Jennings Junior High College & Career Prep School. As a cornerstone of the 2019-2020 school year, the students, faculty, and teachers will focus on academic achievement, building positive character and fostering positive relationships through the continuing of the weekly house meetings along with exploratory courses such as PLTW, Entrepreneurship and Construction and increasing school clubs from 11 to 22. Also, a more in-depth focus on STEM and Robotics fields will help our students achieve the expected one-year learning gain.

         We are Warriors and we are stronger when we respect others and develop personal traits of integrity, honesty, and service. As you walk through our halls and gaze at the positive affirmations painted on ceilings and walls by students, you will see we are walking out our purpose because we are each destined to be great teachers and students!

 If your child is entering eighth grade for this school year, it is mandatory that he/she have the T-dap immunization prior to the beginning of school. Documentation of the immunization must be submitted to the School Nurse before your child is able to register for school. Documentation can be faxed, email or dropped off at the school, 8:00-3:00 pm daily.

 It is very important that all students be in the designated uniform on the first day of school and each day of the school year as outlined below. Students who do not adhere to the dress code will receive consequences.
