Principal's Message

Cody Rich


I am incredibly excited about the start of a new school year. The faculty and staff of Jennings Creek Elementary have worked very hard over the summer months to ensure that your children have the best year. As principal of Jennings Creek Elementary, I aim to create a positive culture and climate that prioritizes safety and learning. In addition, we aim to see each student reach their potential by providing high-quality, engaging instruction and opportunities to every student. 

Before Wednesday, there are a few things that I need to communicate:

1. If you have completed the early drop-off form, you will be allowed to drop off your children between 7:30 AM - 7:45 AM each morning. Unfortunately, early drop-off is reserved only for families that have to be at work by 8:00 AM and have no other option to get their children to school. We would love to allow every family to utilize early drop-off; however, we simply do not have the staff to accommodate.

2. If you plan on walking your student to class on the first day of school, please know that every person must scan their ID into Raptor. No one will be allowed in the school without scanning their IDs. If you are already in the system, this is a quick process; however, if you have never used Raptor, it can take some time. In addition, anytime you plan to come to see your child (i.e., eat lunch with them), you will have to go through the Raptor system. 

3. Lastly, we will be holding a special SBDM parent minority election soon. I will send a message to families this week asking for nominations. Before you nominate someone, please ensure they are willing to serve on the committee. It can sometimes be time-consuming and is very important as the person elected will represent JCES parents in school-based decisions.  

Lastly, every family needs to complete a Household Income Form. These forms have been on paper in past years, but we have transitioned them to digital this year. It is important that everyone completes this form because it affects our funding. Please follow the link below to complete the Household Income form. If you have any questions, please reach out to someone at the school.
