Central School Entry Procedures for Hybrid Students

Please note, if you are a parent and/or guardian of a student participating in the AVAC/Transition, Pathways, or IPL programs, additional information regarding your student’s schedule and the program is forthcoming from the building Special Education coordinator. 

A parent/guardian must pre-certify the student before he/she can enter the school.  Read Pre-certification Instructions for Hybrid Students.

Bus Riders 
Students must wear masks on the bus, maintain 6 feet of distance, and sit one person to a bus seat, unless students reside in the same household. Bus routes are found on the Transportation Webpage. On the first in-person learning day, students should report to the bus stop at the pickup time listed for their route.   Students can ask their bus driver for a more exact pick uptime. 

Buses will drop students off on the east side of the building. Students will remain on their bus until our deans dismiss them and then enter through Door F or Main Entrance (Student Center). 

At dismissal, buses will line up on Herkimer. 

Students should memorize or write down their bus route number because they need it to find the bus they take home. 

Car Riders 
Parents should drop off students off Eastern Avenue (near auditorium).  Students can enter door J or G. 

Student Drivers 
A permit is required for students to park in JTHS lots.  Request a parking spot by completing Parking Lot Request Form.  Priority is given to seniors.  If your child drives, remind him/her to drive carefully and follow all rules.  Drivers enter through doors J, G, F or the main entrance. 

If your student walks to school, they enter through doors J, G, F or the main entrance. Please remind him/her to use the crosswalks and follow the traffic signals. 

Entering the Building 
When students enter the building, we scan their ID to obtain proof of pre-certification.  If a student forgot the ID at home or was not issued an ID yet, we have a plan in place. Students may enter the building at 7:45 a.m. and classes start at 8 a.m. 

Food & Drinks in School 
Food is not allowed.  Drinks are not allowed unless they are in a sealed container.  For example, a drink from McDonalds is not allowed, but a water bottle is. Exceptions are made in certain situations if we are notified by the Health Office or Special Services. 

School Meals
Students receive a bagged meal when they leave school on days they attend in-person.
