Dear Holman Families,

I hope that you are enjoying the summer!

If you are moving during the summer and will be transferring your child(ren), please contact the main office Monday through Thursday between the hours of 9:00AM and 3:00PM. If you are moving within the Jackson School District, you will need to sign an Internal Transfer Form and provide proofs of your new residency before your child’s records can be transferred.  If you are moving out of the Jackson School District, you will need to sign a Student Transfer Verification Form.  A transfer card and a copy of your child(ren)’s health records(s) will be provided to register at a new school. The following information is needed to complete the transfer card:  new home address, new school name, and the new school address.
