Policies and Procedures

LUNCH AND BREAKFAST

 All students are eligible for free lunches.

MEDICAL INFORMATION     

A medical permit must be completed and signed by the attending physician and the parents if a child needs to take medication during school.

 SCHOOL BUS PROCEDURES

During the morning and afternoon bus routes, no vehicle, other than those belonging to school employees, will be allowed to park or drive within the bus pick-up area or the drive area which is located directly in front of the school building. This is a serious safety hazard.

PARENT PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF 

EARLY DISMISSAL TIMES

CLASSROOM/BIRTHDAY PARTIES, TREATS, AND DRINKS

We are happy to celebrate your child’s birthday as long as your child’s teacher is given prior notice. Birthdays may be celebrated at the end of the school day. In addition, Jordan School has a “Birthday Book” program which allows a child to select and purchase a special book ($5.00) that they may share with the class and with their family. After a week, a special marker will be placed in the book denoting the child’s name and birth date and the book will then be donated to the Jordan School Library on behalf of the child.

SCHOOL VISITS AND CHILD PICK-UP PROCEDURES

Please report to the office when you enter the building. Items and messages should be left with Mr. Bland or Mrs. Holtkamp. They will then deliver them when it is least disruptive.

CHANGE OF AFTER-SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION

Notification of any change in a child’s normal after-school transportation should take place prior to 12:00 P.M. on the day of the change. This includes bus transportation and parent pick-ups.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Please make sure that your child has adequate school supplies throughout the school year. P.E. shoes are needed to participate in P.E. P.E. shoes should be in your child’s locker on the first day of school. It is extremely important that your child have the necessary supplies to enable him/her to succeed during the school year. If you are unable to obtain the necessary supplies, please contact the school and we will do our best to assist you.

TEACHER APPOINTMENTS

If you would like to talk to your child’s teacher by phone, you may contact the teacher by using our automated phone system. Simply choose the menu option on the announcement to go to the school directory and enter the teacher’s name for his/her extension. You will then get the teacher’s voice mail if the teacher is unable to answer.

LOST AND FOUND ITEMS

Items that are lost by students will be placed in a lost and found area in the office. At the end of each month unclaimed items will be donated to the Salvation Army.

SCHOOL CANCELLATION/NOTIFICATIONS

Parents will be notified of any school cancellations, early dismissals, and/or special events that are taking place at Jordan School through our AlertNow system. It is extremely important that parents/guardians keep the school office informed of any changes in telephone numbers throughout the school year.
