Arrival Procedures

Please familiarize yourself with the procedures below in case your family requires an occasional change in how your child/children arrives at school. Students who are not participating in morning clubs, should arrive beginning at 8:45 a.m. There is no supervision before that. Classes begin at 9 a.m. Students who enter the building after 9 a.m. should be signed in by an adult at the office and are tardy.  

School Bus:  As buses arrive at school, students who would like to eat breakfast are dismissed from the bus into the building to obtain breakfast in the cafeteria.  At 8:45 a.m., all students are dismissed from buses. If you are dropping your child off at school, please go to our car drop-off lane located in the back of the school.  For the safety of our students, please refrain from driving through the bus loop while buses are present to drop off your child.

Car drop-off:  If you are interested in dropping your child off at school, please join us in the back parking lot of school.  Cars will move in a line around the loop marked by cones and leave the loop at the same exit they entered. Supervision begins at 8:45 a.m.  Do not drop your child off without supervision being present. If your child can open the car door independently to exit the car, please encourage them to do so.  Per district policy, pets are not allowed on campus. It is a JLM procedure for the safety of staff to not open a vehicle door if an animal is present. Once a student exit the vehicle, staff monitors them to walk behind the cones for their safety to enter the building.  There are two doors students may enter from our drop-off lane. If your child is acquiring breakfast, please encourage them to enter through the gym door where breakfast is served. Supervision throughout the building is provided to help students find their classroom. Since supervision ends at the second bell, any vehicles arriving after 9:00 a.m. will be directed to the front parking.  Parents are encouraged to park in the front parking lot and sign-in their child in the front office. Students entering the building after 9:00 a.m. are tardy.  


Clubs and activities:  JLM will offer opportunities for students to participate in a variety of club activities this year.  Just a reminder that clubs start at 8 a.m.  It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to provide transportation for their child to JLM on the day their club will meet. Supervision starts at 8:00 a.m. for clubs.   Feel free to drop your child off at the door.  Please do not park in the drop-off lane. Please be sure to the best means of communication with your child’s club sponsor to get up-to-date information including schedules, any cancellations that may occur, or other important information.  For more information about club descriptions and other information, click here.
