Jefferson City Schools Food Service Department is committed to providing each student with a healthy, affordable, and safe meal that is served by caring individuals so students are ready to learn when they get to the classroom. School breakfast and lunch are planned and prepared according to standards that meet the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Americans in a safe and sanitary environment. The cafeterias serve as learning centers where students can acquire the knowledge to develop lifelong healthy eating habits
USDA’s federal nutrition regulations for school meals ensure that all meals offered are well-balanced and provide students the fuel they need. Recent changes to the meal pattern regulations include an increase in fruits and vegetables (each student must select at least one serving), a greater variety of vegetables to include dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes, an increase in the availability of whole grain products, and a more age-appropriate caloric limit. Please visit each schools website to see the lunch menu.
Jefferson City Schools recognizes that student wellness and proper nutrition are related to students' well-being, growth, development, and readiness to learn. Please click on the link below to access the districts wellness policy. If you have any comments, suggestions, or a desire to be involved in the implementation of this policy, please contact Sue Hamm at 706-367-2546.
We look forward to dining with your children in our cafeterias.
This section will describe policies and procedures relating to parking, student drop-off, student pick-up and bus travel.
Students are not allowed to park in the faculty parking lot or area during school hours.
Parking on campus is a privilege. Therefore, certain rules and regulations are expected of the student to maintain this privilege. At Jefferson High School, a student must be in good academic, attendance, and disciplinary standing to purchase and keep a parking permit. At any time a student begins to exhibit inappropriate grades, attendance, and / or behavior, they will forfeit their parking privilege for a specified period of time up to the remainder of the school year. In order to apply and purchase a parking permit, a student can have no major disciplinary referrals (Level 3 or 4) and must be clear of all fees, fines, and obligations.
Parking must be in marked spaces only. Parking hang tags must be displayed in vehicle at all times. Parking hang tags can be purchased for $50 and are valid through the current school year.Parking Application
Must show Drivers' License and Proof of Insurance to register vehicle and purchase hang tag.
Do not park in driveways, entrances, exits, or on the grass. Parking outside marked spaces, in driveways and entrances or exits of parking lot, and parking so as to block other cars is prohibited.
Once students arrive at school they must park and leave their vehicles. Returning to parked vehicles, except with permission of an administrator, may not be done until the time for the student to leave school. No loitering or congregating in the parking lot is permitted during school hours. Infractions can result in the loss of parking privileges, exemption status, and/or disciplinary action.
Student drop-off occurs in the back of the school on the road between the Annex and the Art Building. Enter from Old Pendegrass Road (last right before the railroad tracks). The left lane is for through traffic and student parking only; all drop-off occurs in the right lane. All people exiting the car should exit on their right-hand side. Exiting the vehicle on the left-hand side will put the student into a moving lane of traffic.
The drop-off zone begins after the ROTC building parking lot and extends to the crosswalk between the Art Building and the Annex. Once you enter the drop-off zone, pull as far forward as you can before traffic stops you. Once you stop, have your student exit the vehicle on the right-hand side and use the sidewalks to travel to his or her destination.
Students should never walk in the road. If they need to cross the drop-off road to reach the Art Building, they should walk to the front of the Annex and use the crosswalk between the Annex and the Art Building. Always use the sidewalk. Do not walk in the road.
Once the student exits the vehicle, you will continue on this road until you reach 129. If there are stopped cars in front of you after drop off, you may change lanes to the left lane to exit, but please exercise extreme caution when doing so to avoid accidents. Please drive slowly. There is a lot of foot traffic in this area in the mornings and safety should always be your first priority.
Students may also be dropped off in the senior parking lot in the front of Jefferson High School. To get to this parking lot, drive in front of the school on Washington Street and turn into the school by the Arena. There is a drop off zone in the middle parking lot. Turn into this parking lot and drop your child off there. After you have dropped your child off, drive slowly through the rest of the parking lot and exit the school on Old Pendergrass.
Jefferson High School has two guidance counselors, a graduation coach, and a distance learning coordinator who assist students with academic advisement, scheduling, graduation requirements, Move on When Ready, college preparation, credit recovery, and counseling for various issues. Counselors are assigned by grade level in efforts to provide students with individual attention as needed. 9th and 11th grade students are assisted by Jackie Hatcher; 10th and 12th grade students are helped by Jamie Cathcart.
