SJCSD Parent Resource Guide
This guide contains information about standards, assessments, graduation requirements, acceleration and advanced academic options, course progression for grades 6 – 12, transportation, lunches, resources for parents, etc.
We welcome parents and guardians to our school. We ask that all visitors enter the building only through the front office where they can obtain a dated pass. This pass is to be worn on the upper right left shoulder area while on school grounds. Only those who have completed the School Access Form and been approved will be allowed to leave the front office unaccompanied. All others will require an escort. You must also present a state issued ID to obtain entrance to the main campus. We use Keep N Track in all schools. When you have been approved you will be able to sign in as a “volunteer”. The is the terminology that indicates the system has completed a background check. Even if you are not planning to volunteer we ask that you use this sign-in option to indicate that you have completed the School Access Form. One component of safety is knowing who is requesting access to our buildings. The Keep N Track system will:
- Electronically log visitors and volunteers at check-in
- Print dated badges
Parents are not permitted to go to their child’s class unannounced during school hours or to walk their child to class after the second week of school. If you need to meet with your child’s teacher, please prearrange a meeting with him or her. This is important so that we can keep the school secure and reduce interruptions to the instructional program. We appreciate your cooperation in helping us provide a safe learning environment for the students.
