Eagles Cafe Update

It's time to make your selection for the food service option for your student(s) as we start off the 2018-19 school year! At this time, it is essential that we have your student's food service program selection in the system in order for our Eagle's Café to be prepared to provide the best service beginning with the first day of school. Even if you are choosing to have your student start the year by bringing their own lunch, we need to have that recorded in our system. Please login to your PlusPortals Forms account and make your selection today.

If you have any additional questions about the new program, please email Cheryl Payne in the Business Office or call (561) 354-1957. 

Clinic Reminder

Any new students or returning 7th grade students need to provide a copy of a health and physical form completed within one year of the school start date and completed immunization records. This is required to start the first day of school. If you have any questions for the Clinic, please email or call (561) 354-1928.

Parent Volunteers

Do you want to become a JCS volunteer? If so, all parents who wish to volunteer or accompany their children on JCS field trips must have a current and valid background check. Livescan will be in the East Campus Gym on Tuesday, August 28th from 7:00 - 11:30 a.m. for those parents who plan on volunteering now or in the future. The background check will be valid for 5 years and will be on file with JCS. This background check is processed through the Volunteer & Employee Criminal History System (VECHS) with the FDLE, specifically for JCS, so previous other agency clearances are not acceptable. You can accomplish this by either making an appointment at the in-school Livescan session or by scheduling an individual appointment at their office in Palm Beach Gardens.
