Principal's Message, June 2021

June, 2021


Dear Johnson Families,

I want to take this opportunity to thank the HCJ PTO, staff, students and families for all of their time, effort and patience during this past school year and tackling the new challenge of Remote Learning.  Together we rose to the occasion and I believe we helped foster an atmosphere of learning and caring, where our students feel valued and respected.  The dedication of everyone makes it possible.  I am so proud of our Johnson community!

I hope everyone has a happy and healthy summer!  Take time to enjoy family, friends and don’t forget to read! 

3rd Marking Period Report Cards are available on the Portal Tuesday, June 22nd. 

Moving During 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 7:30AM 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.
