JMS IB PYP/MYP WORLD SCHOOL
6th - 8th Grade
All students are asked to stay in the playground in the morning where there is supervision. The school bell rings at 8:25 a.m. This bell serves two purposes. The first purpose is middle school students are beginning class. The second purpose is it serves as a warning bell for 1st - 5th grade students. When the bell rings the students will have a chance to use the restroom or get a drink of water before class begins. A whistle will be blown by yard duty and students will line up in the playground area with their class. They will then proceed to walk to class in a quiet manner.
Do you have a student absent? If yes, please call the Attendance Line at 925-606-4738 ext 2 and leave a detailed message, including your student's name, teacher, days absent, and reason. ALL absences must be excused within 3 days.
If you'd like to make arrangements for homework pickup due to an absent, please email your student's teacher directly. Teacher's email can be found under the "Discover JMS" tab, then the "Teachers" tab.
Our student Valet Program will begin soon.

Blue Eagle Folder Program
Each Wednesday the blue Eagle "Wednesday Folder" will be sent home with your child. This is an effort to improve communication between the school and home. Look over all the material and return signed forms in the envelope promptly on Thursday morning. It is important that folders are returned since new information will be placed in the folders throughout the week. If your child does not return the folder, we cannot guarantee you will be provided with timely school information.
Students will be required to have a Home Folder. Should your child misplace or lose their folder, you will need to purchase a replacement envelope in the office for a dollar donation.
