HS Panther News

We appreciate our involved parents and community members. We also enjoy broadcasting our latest news and information here on our News page where we will chronicle school activities and student achievements and publish announcements. We’ll also offer helpful resources and information. So check back often; we’ll update this page regularly.

Freshman Orientation

Freshmen Orientation at JCHS is from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on July 24 and 25. We divided 9th graders into groups. We ask students with last names A-J to attend on Wednesday, July 24. We ask students with last names K-Z to attend Thursday, July 25. Parents should drop students off at entrance A of JCHS to report to the auditorium. During orientation, you will participate in different team-building activities to get you acclimated to and more familiar with the school and the people in it.

Freshman Induction

JCHS invites all freshmen and their parents to Freshmen Induction Night on Monday, August 5 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The evening begins promptly at 6:00 p.m. and takes students and their parents through an abbreviated schedule allowing them to move from room to room and become acquainted with their teachers.

Change in Breakfast Program for 2019–2020

During the 2018–19 school year, the Jennings County Schools piloted a program to provide free breakfast for all students in the district. Unfortunately, the formula we used to allow us to calculate the cost of the program was not an accurate predictor of our financial commitment. While we were able to finance this program for one year, we are not able to continue it due to the financial cost of the program. While we will no longer be providing free breakfasts, we are committed to ensuring students who are hungry have meals available. Our staff will work closely with families to make sure we do not turn any student away from breakfast or lunch if they do not have money.

To learn how to apply for free or reduced price meals and textbook assistance, please see the entire letter from Superintendent Teresa Brown.

We look forward to welcoming back our students on August 6. We have many exciting opportunities planned for our students for the 2019–20 school year. Please continue to let us know how we can better serve you.
