Dear JCHS Students and Families, We are excited to start the 21-22 school year on Tuesday, September 7th. If a student does not yet have their schedule, they should come to the front office to request a copy. We have a new bell schedule this year with later start and end times. School begins each day at 8:25 AM and is dismissed at 3:20 PM. Each day, the building will open for student entry at 8:00 AM. We ask that students enter the building through the door closest to their destination. If they are starting their morning with breakfast in the cafeteria, they should enter through the Science Entrance, otherwise, entering through the door closest to their first period class is appreciated. State guidance requires that all students and staff will need to wear a mask indoors. We ask also that students maintain 3 feet physical distance from others, and practice hand hygiene by washing hands or using hand sanitizer regularly. We will visually screen students entering the building for signs of illness, and ask that students not come to school if they are ill. We look forward to seeing all of our students first thing Tuesday! Dina and Justin
Queridos Estudiantes y Familias de JCHS, Estamos emocionados por comenzar el año escolar 21-22 el martes, 7 de septiembre. Si su estudiante aún no tiene su horario, deben de ir a la oficina principal para solicitar una copia. Tenemos un nuevo horario este año con unas horas de entrada y salida más tarde. Cada día las clases comienzan a las 8:25 AM y se despiden a las 3:20 PM. Cada día, el edificio abrirá para la entrada de los estudiantes a las 8:00 AM. Les pedimos a los estudiantes entrar al edificio por la puerta más cercana de su destino. Si están comenzando su mañana con desayuno en la cafetería, deben de entrar por la Entrada de Ciencia, sin embargo, se le agradecería si entra por la puerta más cercana a su clase del primer periodo. La guía del estado requiere que todos los estudiantes y el personal se pongan un cubre boca dentro del edificio. También les pedimos que los estudiantes mantengan un distanciamiento físico de 3 pies entre otros, y que practiquen lavarse las manos o usar desinfectante de manos regularmente. Visualmente evaluaremos a los estudiantes entrando al edificio para ver señales de enfermedades, y pedirles a los estudiantes que no vayan a la escuela si están enfermos. ¡Esperamos ver a todos nuestros estudiantes el martes! Dina Marschall y Justin Corey
JCHS - August 2021
Ms. Marschall and Mr. Corey would like to welcome all of our students and staff back for what will be a fantastic 2021-2022 school year here at Junction City High School.
You will see some new faces this year. We welcome Nathan Westerby as our new PE teacher and Head Wrestling coach, Tino Dwarokowski Digital Arts/Media/and Publications, Sarai Pozos as a Grad Coach, Aaron Klein will be the counselor for 10th and 12th graders, Jason Koch in Art, Kyle Peden will be our Dean of Students, Thomas Curtis and Gavin Marschall Custodial, Danielle Tesch, and Lisa Moore as our Head Secretary! This is a great group of professionals eager to join a tremendous team!
Our first day of school will be Tuesday, September 7th with the first period starting at 8:25. Incoming 9th graders will get an opportunity to explore campus, meet their new teachers, and work with Leadership students during 9th Grade Orientation on Thursday, September 2nd from 9am-Noon. Thanks to the many Leadership students who have volunteered to give up time at the end of their summer break to make our 9th graders have a tremendous transition to high school.
As noted above, we do have a different start time this year, 8:25am. So be sure you plan accordingly. We will also be returning to open campus for lunch. Please also be mindful of your time so you are back for classes safely. This also means we have a slight change to the end of the day as well; 3:20pm.
We thank all the staff who signed up and worked with students to earn credits this summer as well as the team supporting students during the Summer Bridge program. Additionally, a shout out to the entire custodial staff for the hard work cleaning and preparing spaces for our returning students.
Fall sports are underway; Football Jamboree will be Friday August 27th, Boys and Girls Soccer and Volleyball August 31st, and Cross Country on September 4th. Join a team or come support your TIGERS! Mark your calendars for Fall Sports Parent night August 24th and the annual JCHS Noise Parade (during Homecoming week) on Wednesday, September 22nd. The parade will begin at 7:00pm, with Noise Night Activities under the lights at Peden Field immediately after.
Once again, we are so thankful to the many churches and volunteers from Project Hope that gave up a Saturday to come and help beautify district buildings and outdoor spaces. Their help and contribution of physical labor is only part of their support. The time spent getting clothing and school supplies to families before school starts is so appreciated we can’t thank them enough. Thank you!
We will continue to emphasize that Every Day Matters. What you do does matter. The choices you make every day does matter. We are here to help you build skills that will make you successful, because YOU MATTER! Be at school every day, be engaged every day, and work hard and you’ll reach success.
