SUMMER MEAL PROGRAM
Students, up to the age of 18, have the ability to go to either Jefferson Elementary or Eagle Heights Elementary schools, in Clinton, to participate in the summer meal program.

FROM NURSE AMANDA
If your child has prescription or over-the-counter medication at school, it will be important to stop in and pick it up before or at the completion of the school year. Left over medication cannot be sent home with students for the safety of them and others. If the medications are not picked up by June 18th, they will be discarded. If you have any questions regarding our medication policy, please contact the school nurse. Thank you!
Registration for the 2021-2022 school year will be completed online. Parents, please make sure that your contact information is up-to-date in JMC. Communication regarding registration for next school year will be shared via text and/or email as soon as online registration opens. The district will NOT be having a district wide registration at the high school. More information to come!
FEES AND UNPAID BALANCES
Please strive to get your students’ bus fees, book fees, and library fees paid. Some lunch accounts are also past due. Balances of all students’ accounts will carry over to the following school year. Balances of 4th grade students will carry over to their 5th grade accounts at middle school. All unpaid balances that carry over to the next school year will show as additional amounts owed during online registration.
ADDRESS AND PHONE NUMBER CHANGES
If you have had a change of address or phone number, please remember to update your online JMC parent portal account with this new information so your child’s records can be updated. It is imperative that we have your correct information so that you can receive all district communication. If you have any questions or need help with your online account, please call the Camanche Elementary Main Office at 563-259-3016. Thank you!
