Dear JRCS Families,

Last week was a wonderful start to the 2023-2024 school year!  We saw so many happy faces and the campus was buzzing with the energy of students excited to learn. On Wednesday, we started the day with our annual Rose Ceremony to welcome new first graders into the grades. Thursday was just as exciting as we welcomed our new kindergarteners as they walked under the Rainbow Bridge and joined their new classes. Both of these events are a reflection of the beauty, kindness, and care given to all students, each year, at JRCS.  Pictures from both events can be viewed here:

Here are a few announcements and reminders:
*School starts at 8:00 am.  Gates will open at 7:45 am to welcome students in and will close promptly at 8:00 am. Any student not in class, and ready to learn, at 8:00 am will be considered tardy. Students arriving at 8:01 am, and later, will need to be walked into the office.
* We have made some changes to the Drop-off/Pick-up Procedure, please review them here: Drop-off/Pick-up Procedure

Please use the kindergarten gate to drop off and pick up your child from Before/After Care. To reach Before/After Care during their hours of operation, please call: 970-986-8210, ext 702.
