ATTENTION SCHOOL PERMIT DRIVERS: Please review the laws/expectations of your School Permit. We want to keep you safe and legal.

USAGE: When can I use my School Permit?

9th grade students who wish to obtain a school driver’s permit can follow the following link:

This link will guide them to a Google Site. Students will need to log in with their jdragonmail credentials in order to watch a video and complete a quiz. The video contains the information that was presented at permit meetings in the past and will now take the place of those meetings. One parent will need to watch the video and note that completion on the quiz. As usual, the only students eligible are 9th graders who have completed driver’s education and have had their learner’s permit for at least six months. After the quiz has been completed, students can pick up their signed Department of Transportation form in the JMS Front Office. When we return to the building, students will need a parking tag to park on school grounds. Parking tags are available for $20. Please make sure you have your license plate number with you at the time of purchase.


Any 8th or 9th grader interested in participating in MathCounts, please fill out the following form:

We are wanting to make sure everyone is getting onto their Zoom classes so you are not counted absent. Make sure you are checking your email for information but you also need to sign into Moodle which is your same login as Infinite Campus and locate your course according to your schedule.


If it was math you would click on math depending on 8th grade or 9th grade and then locate your math teacher and click on that teacher. If you have never logged into their Moodle page you will need their enrollment key so be sure to email your teacher for that.

 Online Content

Once in their Moodle page you will find links and assignment information. Please reach out to your teacher or the front office if you need additional assistance.
