School Hours
Classes begin at 8:20 a.m. and dismiss at 3:30 p.m.

To begin the school day, the first bell rings at 8:10 am. Students may go to their classrooms at this time. The second bell rings at 8:20 am, which is the tardy bell. Students should take their seats at this time. School begins.

For students that arrive before the first bell, middle students will wait in the lobby by the office and K-4 students will wait in the lobby by Mr. Alons office. Playground supervision starts at 8:10 am. We would appreciate students staying off the playground until then.

To avoid being tardy, please have your child(ren) to school by 8:15.

At the end of the day, bus students will be dismissed at 3:27 pm. All other students will be dismissed at 3:30 pm.

Schedule change
This year we will not be starting late on Wednesdays. Instead, we will be dismissing early on some Fridays. Keep an eye on emails from school with those dates or you can check the calendar on the school website.
Mid Term Progress Reports
Report cards are completed for students each nine weeks during the school year. We also use a mid term report that teachers can use to communicate student's progress to students and parents. The mid term progress reports
are given to every student after the first 5-6 weeks of school so students and parents receive some information about student progress prior to the first nine week report card. After the first nine weeks, mid term progress reports are used by teachers only when needed and not necessarily for every child.
After School Reminders
After school, students are to leave the building and go to their destination. Students involved in sports and after school study time need to be in their arranged location. The building is being cleaned after school therefore all other students need to leave. We do not have monitors around the building after school.

Parents please be aware that all personal student activity plans after school should be arranged before school. The phone at school is only for emergency situations. Please have your child's after school ride arranged before school, unless unforeseen changes come up during the day.
JMC Access to view hot lunch and tuition
You can check the balance of your hot lunch and tuition accounts. You can find this by going to the OCCS website, selecting 'Parents' and 'JMC'. The username is you last name and the password is what was provided on the pink sheet at registration. Contact the office with questions.
Tuition Statements
Tuition statements are emailed home once a month, around the 10th. If you have signed up for a 10 or 12 month payment plan, please make a payment during the month. For those with a quarterly payment plan, please make a payment in November, February and May. We appreciate prompt payment! If you have any questions concerning this, please call the school office (737-2274).
