Welcome Letter from the Principal

Dear Richard Ira Jones Families,

We hope this summer will be a relaxing and enjoyable one for your family.  We are looking forward to a tremendous 2019-2020 school year with you and your student.  A few reminders of important dates for the upcoming school year: 


  • School fees will be uploaded July 15th  and you will be able to pay them online at that time via the link on
  • School Fee Waivers will be available at the end of July.
  • Lunch applications will not be available until the beginning of August
  • Students Schedules will be on the Home Access Center the second week of August.
  • August 12th is locker move-in night from 4:00 pm- 6:00pm.
  • First Day of School August 14th. 

Physical Education locks are a requirement for your student this coming school year.  If your student is a returning 7th or 8th grader you need to use the lock, which you were issued.   If your student is in 6th grade or new to the school district, a lock will be provided at the beginning of the school year.  Locks from stores cannot be purchased and used.  If your student has an existing uniform for physical education this can be used for the 2019-2020 school year.  Local vendors have those available to you, if needed.  Agenda books will be handed out to students on the first day of school.

All 6th grade students must have a physical prior to the first day of school.  Enclosed please find information related to that.  Sixth grade students without a physical form on file will not be able to start school on August 14th.


We look forward to another exciting year.  Please encourage your student to be involved in some of the wonderful clubs and activities Ira Jones has to offer.  Should you have any questions at all feel free to contact us at Ira Jones Middle School.

With P.R.I.D.E.,

Mr. Thomas Novinski
