Tip of the Week: Use Electronic Communication Wisely #JTAchievesTogether
Please be mindful that inappropriate technology usage or electronic communication can lead to disciplinary action if it is harmful or disruptive toward our school, or if it indicates that a student is in violation of School Board policy.
In addition, JTHS encourages parents/guardians to talk to their student about electronic safety and the consequences of inappropriate technology usage.
Students and parents should report inappropriate or threatening communication that may compromise the safety of our school community to the student’s dean or any member of the JTHS staff. Students and parents can anonymously report instances of inappropriate communications, cyberbullying or safety issues to the School Violence Tip Line at 1-800-477-0024.
