Material Dropoff (Translated Copy)
JCSD Community,
Starting on April 8th and running through April 14th, the district will have student work drop off spots available at Juniata Elementary School and East Juniata Elementary School for those students using materials that were mailed to their residence and unable to take advantage of virtual options. From 7:00 am to 7:00 pm the first set of entrance doors to the school buildings listed above will be open and have drop boxes available in the vestibule area. The drop boxes will be labeled with the name of each school. Please place your materials in the box that is labeled with your child’s school. The drop boxes at East Juniata Elementary School will be for students attending East Juniata Elementary School and East Juniata High School. The drop boxes at Juniata Elementary School will be for students attending Juniata Elementary School, Tuscarora Junior High School and Juniata High School. If you are unable to drop off your child’s materials, please get in contact with your home school for further information.
If you received materials by mail, a new packet of materials will be released shortly after the 14th for your child to continue with their studies. If you are having difficulty receiving materials or have not received any to this point, please get in contact with your child’s school. If there is no answer, please leave a message and someone will get back in contact with you as soon as possible. We would like to thank all of our parents and students for their continued hard work during this unprecedented closing of our schools.

They can help guide you through any school issue you are having.  In addition, our administrative staff are available to help as well. Please contact your local school office if needed.
