Once we are allowed back in the building, you can go officially check in at the Front Office with attendance. You do not need to check in after the drill if you are arriving late due to opting out of your study hall.  Thank you for your cooperation!

The tech department has created a guide to help you troubleshoot iPad problems while you are off-campus. It can be found in your Books app and is titled “iPad Help Guide for Online Learning.” You can also access it at The guide is saved to your iPad so that even if your iPad loses Internet connection, it will still be available to read.


Attention 9th Grade Students and Parents! 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. Students will need a parking tag to park on school grounds during the school year. Parking tags are available for $20 when students pick up their DOT form. Please make sure you have your license plate number with you at the time of purchase.
