Navigating Jones


Special Bell Schedule
We will be following a special bell schedule for the 1st week similar to what we do when we start back in the fall.  This time will be used to distribute IDs, lanyards, and other materials during AcLAb. 

*Please note that regardless of the schedule for Wednesday all students will remain remote on Wednesdays and learn in the remote environment. For example, next Wednesday, 4/21/2021, is scheduled as an A-Day but all students will remote learn because it is a Wednesday.  Wednesdays are the days we deep clean and sanitize the school.  That being said next week B-SHIFT students will not return until Friday 4/23/2021 because there are no classes scheduled on Thursday, 4/22/2021, because of parent-teacher conferences.
Bell Schedule (Starting April 26)

Jones will be reverting to our regular bell schedule since we will need to provide time for lunches.

**Procedures for how AcLab will work in the Hybrid Learning Model are forthcoming. Stay tuned.

Entering the Building

All students are required to complete the CPS Health Screener before arriving at school and will be required to complete a temperature check before entering the building.  Jones will have two entrances open and will be assigned an entrance based on the location of their 1st or 5th period class.


Students will not be assigned lockers; they will be required to carry all of their material throughout the day.


All students who are in person will be assigned to either A Lunch or C Lunch and will be assigned to either the North or South cafeteria depending on their schedule. Students in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade will have the option for open campus lunch. Freshmen are not eligible for open campus lunch.

Students will be required to use disinfectants or wash their hands upon entering the building.
