Morning Program

A reminder that all CP students arriving to school early must report to Rm 158 for morning program. There has been an increase in students wandering the halls and staying outside. Students need to be together, with the designated supervising teacher in Rm. 158 from 8:00-8:40, when they are released to go to their first class. If students arrive earlier than 8:00, they are to wait in the lobby area until the teacher arrives. Please remind your students to follow this important process.

Term 3 Summer Fridays

Please make sure to mark your calendars, as our summer Friday schedule begins soon. From June 14th through the end of the school year, we will have Fridays off.

The Falcon Family Page is now The JPEC Parent Advisory Committee Page

As noted in the April Notes from the President, the Falcon Family Page has been redesigned to engage our Parent Community. Going forward, you can expect to see postings about meetings/events for Parents, requests for volunteer opportunities, and information from our JPAC Board on initiatives. The JPAC page is for current families, staff, and students only!

College Prep Moving for the 19-20 School Year

As you may have already heard, we are excited to announce that the College Prep program will be moving to the existing DaVinci High School building for the 2019-2020 school year! DaVinci made the decision to move from it's Jackson College location to be closer to Baker College in downtown Jackson. As a result of this decision, Jackson College purchased their building and will be leasing it to JPEC for our College Prep program. The Early College program will stay at our current location. Obviously, there are a lot of plans and decisions to be made, and we will keep you updated along the way. If you have any questions, please direct them to Debra Holton at debra.holton@jacksonpec.org.

Updated Dress Code for 2019-2020

As the school year comes to a close, we wanted to make sure we supply you with a copy of the most updated dress code policy for next year. There have been no major changes to the existing policy, rather a few clarifications on specific items, which are highlighted within the document. There is a link at the end to Frenchtoast.com, where we have an approved school catalogue to purchase items at a reasonable cost. Please make sure to reference the attached dress code policy prior to shopping for next school year. Thank you!

Cell Phones In Class

Just a reminder to all CP students and families: the use of cell phones is not permitted in class. You may check your phones in between classes or at lunch, but they must remain off or on silent and out of sight while in the classroom unless specifically stated otherwise by your teachers.

Student Absences

Parents: Please be sure to call the front office as soon as possible in the morning if your child is ill and is going to be absent. It is important for us to be able to keep accurate attendance records, and this will help! The office phone # is 768-7093. If your student is absent due to a medical or dental appointment, please bring a doctor's note so we can excuse the absence. Thank you!
