    Messages and Deliveries during the School Day

    Jasper High School office staff will only deliver medical or emergency messages to students.  Parents and students should take time to communicate each day before the student leaves for school. High school students should not expect their parents to bring their homework, lunch money, or forgotten items to school. This policy will enable students not only to develop into responsible individuals, but also to prevent disruptions to the classroom. Flowers, balloons, and gifts will not be permitted or accepted during the school day.

    Any item(s) left on the drop-off table in the entry should be clearly labeled. It is the responsibility of the student to pick up the item.  Jasper HS is not responsible for any items left on the table.  We will not monitor money or valuable items and encourage you not to leave such on the table.
