2019-2020 School Theme: Other People Matter
School Vision:  All Jones Dairy Elementary students will be prepared to reach their full potential and lead productive lives in a complex and changing world.


Dear Panther Families,

We had another great week of remote learning.  Our students and teachers are working hard and doing a wonderful job!  Thank you for all of your support.

Have a great weekend!


Announcements for this Week:

  • Student Item Pick Up--We realize that many students still have personal items in the classrooms.  We are working on procedures so that we can offer pick up opportunities in June to safely return student items, pass out yearbooks, and give out anything else students may need over the break.  More information will be provided soon in a weekly update. 
  • Student Registration--If you have a rising kindergartener, please register them for next year as soon as you can. Feel free to contact our school's data manager, Ms. Kathy Brown, at if you have any questions about the process. Online registration can be completed by going to this site:
  • Track Assignments--Track information for our new students and rising kindergarteners will be mailed home today.  A virtual orientation for rising kindergarten students is also being planned for later in the month.
  • PTA Newsletter--Please read the correspondence for the month of May to stay up to date on PTA news and events: JDE PTA May Newsletter

  • All WCPSS School Playgrounds and Fields are Closed--Due to local and state directives, all school facilities including all playground and athletic fields are closed. For the safety of our community, we ask that your family please adhere to the guidelines.

  • JDE Remote Learning Toolbox--We have created a remote learning website for our school that can be accessed from our main school page.  The remote learning page has schedule and office hour information, links to pages for each grade level, activities from our specials teachers, technology resources for parents, and much more.

  • SSA Testing Update--At this time all SSA dates, including SSA test requests and SSA testing windows will be postponed until further notice.
