Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year
Jamestown Middle School
Greetings JMS Families,
The first day of school has finally arrived. We are so excited to welcome students back into the building. The JMS staff has been working hard to prepare for the arrival of your children and our students. We believe we have developed a plan which will support and meet the needs of our students. This plan is the place we are starting. It is not the final destination.
We would like to take time to give a few reminders for the start of the year. Cohort B students (M-Z) will begin class on Thursday, August 27th. Cohort A students (A-L) will not need to do anything on August 27th and 28th. Cohort A students begin school on August 31st. Students will receive their own device on their scheduled first day of school. You can expect your child to bring home the handbook and device usage form to sign and return. We are in the process of developing an insurance policy to protect your child's device in the event of accidental breakage. More information on this policy will be sent out at a later date.
In order to help protect all stakeholders during this time, masks are expected to be worn when we cannot physically distance (6 feet). Students will be required to wear masks during transition times and during physical education. Please make sure your child has a mask with him/her on a daily basis. We do have Blue Jay masks for sale in the office. There are four different colors to choose from. The cost is $5 for one mask or $10 for three masks.
We know there are a lot of unknowns as we enter this school year. However, we do know that your child's well-being and education is at the forefront of all of our decisions. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the JMS office at 701-252-0317. Welcome to the JMS family!
