JCMS Families

JCMS is excited to plan for in-person learning onsite, beginning sometime in February. We will remain in CDL/LIPI until we can start in-person. We look forward to safely educating your child in-person under the guidance ODE has provided. Due to the Governor’s strict measures, the school day will look different. 

We are prepared to implement a hybrid schedule (students move from class to class) or a full in-person schedule( teachers move from class to class) based on the governor’s current room capacity and cohort  guidelines. The governor will share with us newly set guidance on January 19th and we will adjust accordingly. The following is an example of a potential schedule that can be used for either hybrid or full in-person:
