What is Skyward Family?

Skyward Family is an important tool we use to connect our families and schools. Every family and student must have an account in order to register for school, pay for meals and fees, check student grades, and more. If you require assistance or need access to a computer, please contact your child’s school.

What is the attendance policy at JCEC?

During COVID-19, we limit classes to six students. This allows us to social distance in the classroom. We will place additional students on a wait list. Due to this wait list situation, we will operate with the Rule of Five. After five absences, we will remove the student from the class and place the student on the wait list allowing another student the opportunity to attend class. If you are ill, stay home, but if you are just missing for non-illness reasons your classroom spot will be given to someone waiting to attend.
