UPDATED: New AM drop-off plan Aug. 22

UPDATE: August 23, 2018 — We are so grateful to the entire community for all the thoughtful, constructive suggestions that are helping manage the increased traffic that has accompanied the growth at WJES, Jackson County’s largest elementary school! The double-line drop-off at the side canopy is going very well. Thanks to all involved for working together to ensure safety and efficiency in this process.

STARTING FRIDAY, Aug. 24, our staff will adjust their hours to accommodate classroom arrival at 7:25 a.m. As you know, the hours of the school day were shifted slightly this year to help accommodate our growing west-side population and afternoon transportation needs, but we have heard our parents’ requests to open classroom earlier and are happy we can make this change.
We will continue to welcome students who arrive before 7:25 in the cafeteria for breakfast or the gym for our Panther Reading time.

August 21, 2018 — New morning drop-off procedures FOR THE REAR DRIVEWAY begin Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018 – check your child’s folder for this important information! There are no changes at this time to the drop-off procedure at the front of the school.
