Elementary Summer School 2020 Information

Jackson R-2 is proud to offer a FREE summer school program for students entering kindergarten through fourth grades in the fall of 2020.  The program is designed to provide educational enrichment activities that expand upon what was taught during the school year.  The program will be starting Thursday, May 28 through Thursday, June 18, a total of 16 days, for incoming kindergarten through fourth-grade students.  We will host summer school at both East and West Lane Elementary.

Please see the list below for summer school attendance areas:

East Elementary:  Any students that attend East Elementary, North Elementary, ALERT Class (incoming 3-4th grades only), ESY and any school other than Jackson R-2 will attend East Elementary Summer School.

West Lane Elementary:  Any students that attend South Elementary, West Lane Elementary, Orchard Elementary, Millersville Elementary, and Gordonville Elementary will attend West Lane Elementary Summer School.  

We encourage all students to attend for a rewarding experience.  Each grade level will have its own special activities! This year our theme is “Summer Olympics 2020”!

Our incoming kindergarten students will choose a morning OR an afternoon session and attend every day May 28- June 18, 2020.  The morning kindergarten session will be held from 8:00- 11:10 a.m. The morning kindergarten session is the only session that will have an option to purchase a (breakfast) meal.  Breakfast is served from 7:30 to 7:50 a.m. Parents may drop students off no earlier than 7:30 a.m. The afternoon kindergarten session will be 12:00-3:10 p.m. Parents may start dropping off afternoon kindergarten students by 11:45 a.m.  Neither morning nor afternoon kindergarten sessions will be served lunch but both kindergarten sessions will be served a snack at no cost to the student.

Our incoming first through fourth-grade students will be served both breakfast and lunch.  Parents may drop students off no earlier than 7:30 in the mornings. Incoming first through fourth-grade classes attend 8:10 a.m. - 3:10 p.m. every day May 28- June 18, 2020.  

Programs are also available for incoming fifth and sixth-grade students.  Jackson Middle School will send out information regarding those programs towards the end of March or you may call Jackson Middle School  243-9543 for information.

Summer School Kids’ Club program (Kindergarten-4th grade) will be available for those families that need additional childcare following the summer school day. The fee for SSKC program is $87.50 and covers May 28-June 18, 2020.  The kindergarten students that are in the afternoon session of summer school may participate in the SSKC program. Your child’s summer school teacher will walk your child down to the cafeteria every day after summer school.  The program ends promptly at 5:45 p.m.
