TJHS Summer 2016 Update

As July comes to a close and the dog days of summer set in, TJHS is in full swing preparing for the new school year.  The custodians of TJHS have done another outstanding job with the summer cleaning, while envelopes are being stuffed with team letters in preparation for a mailing next week.   

Schedule pick-up for 7th and 8th grade students will continue on separate days.  Orientation for 7th grade students will be incorporated into the first day of school.   

Below you will find some important information and dates as we head into August.   

Parent Delivery/Pick-Up - 
  • When dropping a student off, use the one-way entrance off of Adams Street, proceed to TJHS, and drop off students at any point along the sidewalk in front; promptly continue to the one-way exit onto Adams Street. 
  • Students may be picked up from the front of the building, though parking on Ferguson Drive (in front of the building) is not permitted as it is a fire lane.  Parking is available around the island in front of TJHS or in the lot to the north of the building.  
  • If it becomes necessary for you to pick up your child/children at school, we ask that you:
    • Report to the office
    • Identify yourself
    • Sign your child/children out on our release chart
  • We do not release any student from school without parental permission.
