    Update on Grades: 

    Attention Parents, April 27, 2020

     

    Jonesborough Middle School will implement the following procedures regarding grading for the end of the school year: 

     

    Your child’s teacher will enter the earned 3rd nine weeks grade as the 4th nine weeks grade. THIS GRADE CAN BE RAISED, BUT CANNOT BE LOWER. Your child can raise this grade by completing work online that is assigned by the teachers, or completing the work packets that have been made available by the county. Those can be picked up on Mondays and Wednesdays in the food line outside the school, or on the book bus at Central Office. All work turned in will be graded and assessed by the teacher. Please email the teachers with any questions about an assignment. Any COMPLETED packets can be turned in at the school in the designated crate.
