Yearly QuickStart

Yearly QuickStart 2022-2023 

All students (grades 9-12) must complete Yearly QuickStart each year, including freshmen or transfer students who have submitted information previously. Completing the registration enables the school to have accurate records that are needed throughout the year to support our students. The QuickStart form should only be completed by parents with current students or those that have been accepted to Jones.

SY22-23 Updates

Lockers

This year lockers will be assigned to students based on their AcLab. All students will be assigned a locker regardless of whether they use it. Students will receive a card with the locker location and combination on the first day of school during AcLab.

 

Revised ID Format

We're excited to announce that all students will be receiving a new ID for the Fall. The new ID will be horizontal and fit better into the plastic sleeve that comes with lanyards. Students will temporarily lose their CTA/Ventra access until they receive their new ID/Ventra card. The new IDs comply with a new State law requiring suicide prevention information on the back of cards.

  • CTA is Free for Students on Monday, August 22, 2022.
  • New card number, same Ventra account. Similar to when you get a replacement ID, your account number will remain the same, but the card number will change. 
  • Freshman and Transfer students - If you are planning to take CTA, then you will need to set up an account and link your student card once.
