Inspiring Possibilities... Defining Success

10-block schedule
Students at Simonsen, JCHS & NCC will see a new schedule next school year, providing the opportunity to enroll in more classes. Teachers were able to vote on three new schedules - 83% of teachers at those buildings preferred this option. Here's a view of the schedule. And check out the FAQs about this change here.  
Reserved student parking for 2015-2016
Students who drive a vehicle to school must purchase a permit for either reserved parking or for unreserved parking. As is the case each year, free parking is available on the streets adjacent to school property unless prohibited by the City of Jefferson. Unreserved parking spaces are limited and are located on Union Street. They are $10.  Union Street permits allow students to choose their spots on a first-come basis each school day. Students who purchase a reserved parking spot will not have that problem. Reserved spaces are $40 and ensure that a student has a designated parking spot throughout the school year. Priority for reserved spots will go first to seniors, then juniors, then sophomores. It is important to purchase a parking option at registration on July 31, Aug. 3, or Aug. 4. Students can pick up their parking permit hang tag and get their assigned parking spot during the evening of open house on Aug. 18. Students unable to come to open house can pick up their hang tags during office hours on Wednesday, Aug. 19, the day before school begins.
JCHS Bus departures after school

This year buses will be lined up on Lafayette Street after school. Bus students will need to exit from the east side of the main JCHS building and will board buses lined up there, rather than on Jay Drive between JCHS and the Nichols Career Center. This change was made to improve school safety and to alleviate congestion during dismissal.

Traffic movement at JCHS during dismissal

Parents who pick up students after school will want to know that during dismissal no automobile traffic will be allowed on Jay Drive between JCHS and NCC. Jayette Drive on the north side of JCHS will still be accessible. Also, until the buses depart after school, there may be traffic delays and congestion in the areas of Lafayette east of JCHS and Union south of JCHS and NCC. You will want to plan the pick-up of your students accordingly.
