Building Security
We have made a few changes to our building security plan for this school year. The district has invested in the construction of a new secure front entrance at the high school. All who enter the building need to check in with the attendance office. In order to gain access to the building, you must either have a school district ID or have been processed through our Raptor system. Any visitor will need a driver’s license, which is scanned against a database to determine if they can be allowed into the building. After the search is run an ID badge will be printed that a visitor will wear while in the building. This process will be done with all guests who enter district schools, and will allow us to keep better tabs on who enters our buildings. Thank you for your understanding of this process.

We will be announcing some changes to where and when students will be able to enter the building this year. We ask that ALL visitors only enter through the south main entrance.

Parking is limited.  Those students who were issued a tag must have a 2016-17 tag in order to legally park on the JHS campus.  Students can not park in grassy areas, along the curb or in the blue or yellow grid areas located on the outside of the designated parking areas.  If a student is found to be parked in one of those locations, or without a tag, they will be fined.  Students can only park in the designated yellow parking areas and will need their tag for the first day of school.  Students with a school permit, but do NOT have a tag, must park at City Hall, NOT on 59th Court.
