Jerry's Tech Tips
Having issues managing all the tech around your child's Chromebook?
We've seen some kids are having problems because they've got a headset and wireless mouse, but only one usb port available. Or they have a different set up at home and keep unplugging devices when they go to a care facility or a cohort.
You can get an easy USB splitter like this one HERE. At a cost of $11.99, this product helps keep all those extra devices plugged into one location!
Do you want to help make important decisions that affect Jerabek students?
We still need volunteers to serve on the School Site Council (SSC) and the School Governance Team (SGT). The SSC and SGT meet once a month from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Please submit the electronic nomination form found HERE.  
The nomination window has been extended! Please disregard Sept. 18th deadline.
Interested in getting involved another way?
Campus may be closed, but our volunteer efforts remain strong! There are many committees at Jerabek that could use your help! If you would like to lend a hand, big or small, please send an email to jerabekffopresident@gmail.com.
DON"T FORGET....
Show your School Spirit
EVERY THURSDAY!
Wear your Jerabek Logowear or anything green!
Some exciting things are brewing...
New Jerabek logowear styles
