Dear Parents/Guardians, As we place students in classes, remember we do our best to consider parent requests. However, student assignment is based on class size and academic need considerations for all children in the school. Our capacity to balance classes and properly align resources is significantly impacted by teacher requests. Please visit the link at the bottom of this letter to complete a request form. (We have sent an electronic message in Skyward, with the link, as well.) One form will need to be completed for each student. The purpose of this form is to help us better manage teacher requests. If you feel that you would like to request a teacher for your son/daughter, for the 2021-2022 school year, this form must be completed by May 21, 2021. No teacher requests will be accepted via email, written letters, or phone calls. All requests must be completed, in this form. If you have already submitted a written request, you will need to complete this form. If internet access is unavailable to you, please come to the school, and a computer will be provided for you to complete this form. Teacher requests for the 21-22 school year will not be accepted or changed, after May 21, 2021. Please note that by completing the form, we are not guaranteeing that your child will have their requested teacher. Failure to select three different choices, will make your request form invalid. 6th Grade students will have a departmentalized schedule, where students will have all teachers. Please visit the link below to complete the request form. https://forms.gle/S64En3UZU77S5WpN9 Sincerely, Mrs. Gregg, Principal-East Elementary (K-2) Mrs. Tomano, Principal- East Jay Elementary (3-6)

Pre-enrollment for prospective 2021-2022 Jay School Corporation kindergarten students will initially start with an on-line registration form. The link below will be available on the Jay School Website along with the elementary school website. During the month of May, your home district will be contacting you to set up a date and time for a Kindergarten Assessment. When you attend this session, you will need to bring a copy of your child’s certified birth certificate (from the health office) and social security number. It is highly recommended that your child receive physical, dental, and vision exams before entering school in the fall. Forms will be available at the pre-kindergarten enrollment session. Evidence of immunizations for childhood diseases will be required before your child becomes a student in the fall. No need to bring your child’s immunization record unless vaccines were given outside of Indiana. If you have any questions concerning the pre-registration please contact the school listed below. We are looking forward to working with you and your child in making his/her entry into school a success.
