    THURS.-   FRIDAY-  



    1. Will my child have a planner and should I sign it everyday?

    Answer:   Your child will come home with a weekly paper in their HOMEWORK FOLDER.  All important notices and assignments for the week will be on this paper. This is a great form of communication.  We will check it EVERY MORNING.  By signing it, we know you have seen the assignments for that night.  Please feel free to write ANY notices you would like us to know.  We will always respond back. If you prefer email, that is great, too. However, PLEASE do not rely on email for something very important/time sensitive, since many days are very busy and we may not see it until after school.  If something is URGENT & time sensitive, please call the office and our wonderful  secretaries will call down to our room.  


    Answer:  Go to GMAIL.  Type in their LOGIN: LUNCH # @jacksonsd.org   Their PASSWORD is their lunch#with the @ symbol ( 123456@), unless you changed it.

     3.  How do I know if my child has an assignment on Google Classroom?

    Answer:  It will be written on their WEEKLY HOMEWORK PAPER that will be sent home every Monday.  Please sign each night, so we know you have seen the assignments.   

    computer  Please check our GC page daily to see updates and assignments. Your child is responsible for all his/her assignments. GO to your child's Gmail. Then,click on the waffle (9 dots at the top of your Gmail page). Then, scroll down to find GOOGLE CLASSROOM.  Click ASSIGNMENTS to see ASSIGNMENTS and STREAM to see updates. 

     4. Please note: If your child rides the bus home, and there is a change, you MUST let us know by writing a note, sending an emai in the A.M., or contacting the office.  We are not allowed to change procedures without your permission. We cannot believe," My mom/dad/grandma told me......"  Safety is our FIRST priority. Thank you for helping us!

    Please feel free to email us  BOTH with ANY questions or concerns.  We are here to help!
