Packets should be picked up at the main entrance of Jasper High School between 7 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 6th and Friday, August 7th.

You may call and request a form be mailed to your residence if you have not already received one this summer. If you have students attending more than one school, it is only necessary to turn in one form for the family at any of the attended schools.

New Students

Students new to Greater Jasper Consolidated Schools should call to schedule a time to enroll. The best time to call is between 8 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. August 6th and 7th. Incoming freshmen completing the 2014-2015 school year at Jasper Middle School or Holy Family need not schedule an appointment. New students to GJCS should attend an orientation on Tuesday, August 11th from 10 am – noon.

Meet the Teacher Night

Meet the Teacher Night is scheduled for Tuesday, August 18th beginning at 6:30 pm. We will meet in the gym this year. We will share more information about the electronic devices students will receive this year to enhance the learning experience. Parents will receive information in their registration packet as well. We hope parents will sign and turn these in at registration. If they need more information before doing so, they may sign them on this night as they meet with their student’s homeroom teacher. Students with signed usage agreements will receive their 2 in 1 device during homeroom on Wednesday, August 19th. After the initial meeting in the gym, parents will go thru their student’s schedule, beginning in homeroom. We expect the evening to conclude by 8:30 but this will depend in part on how many questions there may be regarding the devices.
