Reminder about Student Safety:

Student safety is a top priority at Jones. Our security team works diligently to keep students safe from harm.  The security team does regular perimeter checks of the school and has increased presence outside at arrival and dismissal times. To assist in keeping the Jones community safe:

  • Please be aware of your surroundings and limit distractions.

  • Do not walk alone when at all possible.

  • Look out for your classmates.

  • If you see something, say something.

  • Only use designated entrances/exits, do not open doors for anyone.  Everyone must enter through the main entrance at 700 S. State.

“Open Door” Communication: As a leadership, we believe effective relationships within our school family are built on mutual respect and open communication. To be supportive and responsive to student and adult needs, the Jones Leadership Team maintains an “open door” policy for everyone in our school community.  We urge all members of the school community to reach out to us.
