Important Update

Limited Registration for 2016-2017 

Jacoby Creek School is now only accepting registration for grade 2 students. All other classes are full. JCS is not accepting any registrations for other grades at this time.  Exceptions will be made for students of families that have moved into our district.

Interdistrict Transfers—Please get this done ASAP!!!!

By the start of the 2016-2017 school year, all JCS students living outside of the district boundaries will need to get an interdistrict transfer from their district of residence.  This is a document that you will get from your child’s “neighborhood school.”  The interdistrict transfer is an agreement between your child’s district of residence school, Jacoby Creek School, and you.  Your interdistrict transfer will need to be renewed annually. Your child’s interdistrict transfer will need to be filed with the school by the start of next year. Please consider taking care of this prior to the end of this school year, as many school offices are closed or operating under different schedules during the summer.   Please call the office if you have any questions about interdistrict transfers.  We would be happy to help you!
