Holiday Break-Friday, December 22 through January 7.  School resumes Monday, January 8, 2018.

Tech Center Holiday Break Reminder

After Holiday break, Tech Center will resume on Wednesday, January 3, 2018
Tech students are expected to attend Tech Center on January 3, 4, 5.

AM and PM Bus Transportation will be provided from the high school at normal scheduled times and locations.

Each day that students do not attend Tech Center on January 3, 4, 5 will count as an absence at tech.

Note to Parents:

 The high school building closes every day at 4:00 p.m.  If your student does not have a specific “after school” activity, please be sure they catch the bus or that they are picked up no later than 4:00 p.m. 

Important message from the office of the District Registrar:

If you have not already done so, please complete the online Returning Student Confirmation form as soon as possible.  It is imperative that you do this so that we have updated phone numbers, email addresses, emergency contacts, and directory information permissions for your student(s).

A new email containing the link you need has been sent so it is easier to locate among your other emails.  The email will be coming from PowerSchool Registration Support.  The subject line reads:  Jenison Public School District Returning Student Confirmation

 Reminder from the High School Office:

“With the the cold season and inclement weather approaching, we would like to remind parents to PLEASE call in your student’s absence or tardiness first thing in the morning.

Also, when you know of an appointment for your student, PLEASE call the office in the morning to allow a pass to be given to your student during the day without interrupting classes.

It is helpful to have all attendance information logged before the attendance secretary leaves at 2pm each day.  Our main office opens at 7:30am, but phone messages may be left 24 hours a day.”

Exxon Mobil Education Alliance Grant

We would like to thank Exxon Mobil/Jenison Mart for the $500 grant that was awarded to Jenison High School.  Generous gifts such as this make it possible for the next generation to pursue studies and careers in the math and science fields.
