Important Information for 8th-Graders

Jennings County High School is planning to have their annual freshmen orientation (with the help of the high school student-council members) on July 24 and July 25, 2019, from 9:00 until 11:00 a.m. They are going to divide the group in half to try and make it a better experience for everyone: 

  • Last names A-J should attend July 24 from 9:00 until 11:00 a.m.
  • Last names K-Z should attend July 25 from 9:00 until 11:00 a.m.

They will begin each day in the auditorium and then do break-outs in various locations in the high school.

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.
