  • STAR Shine Assembly – Monday Sept. 30th at 1:45 pm in the cafeteria
  • George Jack Reward Recess – Monday Sept. 30th at 2:15 pm

In addition to changes in our staff, we are making some other changes this year. The first big change is that we are now the George Jacks. As part of the reconfiguration throughout the school district, all schools, K- 12th grade will be Quincy Jacks and adopt the Green and Gold as the school colors.

Another significant change that we are making is with our Star Shine assemblies. We will not be having a whole school assembly for our Star Shine. Only the Star Shine Students will participate in the assembly. Families are always welcome to come and join us as we celebrate our Star Shine students. Cookies and juice will be provided. Star Shine and Jack Reward Recesses will be on the last school day of the month. There may be some exceptions due to holidays. Information can be found on the school website as well as notes home.

School to Home Communication

We are no longer using the purple Giant folders as a way for teachers to send school letters, notes and student work home. This year each student has been given a white, 1 inch 3-ring binder that teachers will use as one way to share information with you. We ask that you take some time each night when your student gets home and check their binder for information from their teacher.

Student drop-off and pick-up

Please remember that the student drop-off and pick-up lane that runs along the front of the school is not intended for long term parking. Traffic flow is busiest in the mornings and afternoons as students are getting dropped off and picked up, and if a car is parked in the lane it can really cause traffic flows problems. I know that our parking is limited, but if you are planning on being in the building for any length of time, please park you vehicle in one of the parking spaces provided. If there are no parking spaces available and you need to park in the drop-off/pick-up lane, please pull up past the covered walk way so that it allows for quick student drop-off and pick-up. I appreciate everyone’s patience and cooperation.

Office communication

Please notify the office of any changes in after school arrangements before 2:30 pm.

Además de los cambios en nuestro personal, estamos haciendo algunos otros cambios este año. El primer gran cambio es que ahora somos los George Jacks. Como parte de la reconfiguración en todo el distrito escolar, todas las escuelas, grados K-12 serán Quincy Jacks y adoptará el Verde y el Oro como los colores de la escuela.

Otro cambio significativo que estamos haciendo es con nuestras asambleas Estrella Iluminada. No tendremos una asamblea escolar entera para nuestro Estrella Iluminada. Solo los estudiantes de Estrella Iluminada participarán en la asamblea. Las familias siempre son bienvenidas a venir y unirse a nosotros mientras celebramos a nuestros estudiantes de Estrella Iluminada. Se proporcionarán galletas y jugo. Estrella Iluminada y Jack Reward Recreo estarán en el último día escolar del mes. Puede haber algunas excepciones debido a los días festivos. La información se puede encontrar en el sitio web de la escuela, así como notas en casa.

Comunicación de la escuela al hogar

Ya no estamos usando las carpetas blancas púrpuras como una manera para que los maestros envíen cartas escolares, notas y trabajo de los estudiantes a casa. Este año a cada estudiante se le ha dado una carpeta blanca de 1 pulgada y 3 anillos que los maestros usarán como una manera de compartir información con usted. Le pedimos que tomen tiempo cada noche cuando su estudiante llegue a casa y revise su carpeta para ver si hay información de su maestro.

Dejada y recogida de estudiantes

Recuerde que el área de dejar y recoger los estudiantes que corre a lo largo de la parte delantera de la escuela no está destinado a estacionamiento a largo plazo. El flujo de tráfico está más ocupado en las mañanas y las tardes, ya que los estudiantes están siendo dejados y recogidos, y si un automóvil está estacionado en esta área realmente puede causar problemas de flujos de tráfico. Sé que nuestro estacionamiento es limitado, pero si usted está planeando estar en el edificio para cualquier período de tiempo, por favor estacione su vehículo en uno de los espacios de estacionamiento proporcionados. Si no hay espacios de estacionamiento disponibles y necesitas para estacionar en el área de dejar /recogida, por favor, deténgase más allá de la manera de caminar cubierto para que permita una rápida dejada y recogida para estudiantes. Agradezco la paciencia y la cooperación de todos.

Si tienen preguntas pueden llamar a la oficina a 785-2244

Por favor comunicasen con la oficina con cualquier cambio en los arreglos después de la escuela antes de las 2:30 pm.

 
   

If you are a parent of a school aged student I am sure you have heard someone say “attendance matters” or “attendance is important.”  But what does that truly mean?  How important is it really to attend school regularly?

 So first let’s start with some basic facts.  The school calendar we work with accounts for 180 academic school days for our students.  Research shows that a student should be present 95% of the time to meet regular attendance standards.  In a 180 day school year, that means the student should be present at least 171 school days to be considered in regular attendance.   This means that if a student misses 10 or more school days in the school year they fall into the “at risk” category.  If your child misses an average of one school day per month then your child falls into the category of an “at risk” student. 

So what is the danger of being an “at risk” student?  Research clearly shows that students who miss 10 or more school days will be adversely affected in their learning.  In fact, 64% of students who have regular attendance will meet reading standard by the end of 3rd grade.  However, only 43% of students who are “at risk” in attendance during their Kindergarten or 1st grade year will meet reading standard by the end of their 3rd grade year.  Research also shows, that students who do not meet grade level in reading by their 3rd grade year or 4x less likely to graduate high school.

Dear Parents,

In an ongoing effort to help ensure the safety of all of our students, the Quincy School District has introduced the use of a new reporting system that you can use to report incidents to the school. The SafeSchools Alert system i set up and avialable for use. There are five ways that the system can be utilized:

  1. App: Search for SafeSchools Alert in the App Store to download for free
  2. Phone: 1-855-4ALERT1, ext. 1522
  3. Text: Text #1522 + your tip to ALERT1 or 253781
  4. Email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  5. Online: http://1522.alert1.us

This reporting service allows you to easily report bullying, harassment, drugs, vandalism, threats of violence, or any safety issue you are concerned about through SafeSchools Alert. When you submit a tip, be sure to use our distric's identification code: 1522 in your communication. 

Every SafeSchools Alert that is received about our district is immediately logged in the system and our adminstration is notified so that they can investigate and take appropriate action. Tips may also be submitted anonymously if you prefer.

Together, using SafeSchools Alert, we can make our district a safer place to work and learn!
