Congratulation to Dr. Lisa Lane and Mrs. Donna Donner - winners of the Ocean First Model Classroom Grant!

To the Elms Community -

Thanks to all of you for continuing to work with us in all of our endeavors.  Building Safety and School Security is always something we take seriously.  Jackson School District Policy dictates that PHOTO ID be presented at the front reception area of each of our buildings each and every time you enter.  When you plan on visiting the Elms Elementary School, either to pick up your child or attend an event, please be sure to have PHOTO ID available including the make and model of your motor vehicle.  This is district policy and must be strictly enforced.  Please inform friends, neighbors or relatives who may be visiting and/or picking up your child(ren) that they will need to produce PHOTO ID at main reception before being allowed to enter or pick up a child.  Also please note that parking on the bus ramp is not permitted at any time that school is in full session.  Please use the main parking lot and the visitor spaces during the school day when visiting our school.

We appreciate your cooperation in this regard as this is for the safety and security of all of our learners, and for everyone in the building.

From the Principal

Dear Elms Families,

Welcome to the 2015-2016 academic year at Elms Elementary School!  We are happy to announce that we will open on Wednesday, September 2, 2015.  We are looking forward to working with you to make this year successful and exciting for all of our students. 

Please remember that you must print out your child’s BUS PASS using the district Portal. You should have received your login ID and password to the Portal and Parentlink systems in the mail this week. If you did not receive this letter, please email portalsupport@jacksonsd.k12.nj.us

·         Bus pass information will be available on the Portal after August 24.

·         If you cannot print the bus pass from home, you can go to the Administration Building at 151 Don Connor Blvd. on Thursday, Aug. 30 and Friday, Aug. 31 and have one printed out for you.

Please be patient with Bus Pick-Up and Drop-Off times the first few days of school as our bus drivers are acclimating to new routes and new faces!

Also, we cannot stress enough the importance of logging in to the Parentlink system and providing us with an e-mail address so we can reach you. We send out important updates and information weekly and you won’t want to miss out!

Your child’s ID number is used for the lunch program, please have them memorize it.  Additional information about the computerized lunch system and the monthly lunch menus can be found via the District Resources link on the district website at http://www.jacksonsd.org

We also strongly encourage you to utilize school bus transportation.  If you are picking up your children, you must park in the parking lot and come in to the school to sign them out.  Automobile traffic is prohibited in the bus parking lot immediately in front of the school during arrival from 8:30 AM – 9:30 AM and dismissal from 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM.

If your child(ren) is/are attending the Jackson Child Care Program, please be reminded of the importance of clear instructions for your child’s teacher to avoid potential confusion.

We can’t wait to see all of our Elms students on September 2nd!
