Congratulation to all JCPS Classified Employees for making Day One of the 2017-2018 school year a huge success! With over 100,000 students walking through the doors of approximately 157 JCPS schools and facilities you played a vital role in creating a safe and productive first day back for our students, parents, teachers and building administrators across the district.
As our buses rolled, car rider lines formed, crossing guards assisted our walkers, you were there to greet the students. We all know how hectic the first couple of days can be for everyone. First day counts, name tags, lunch numbers, bus numbers, class schedules, continuous ringing phones, tears and more tears, the hugs and smiles, stomach aches, parents who just want that special picture or struggle with letting their babies grow, names forgotten, addresses unknown, these are a few of the things that consume our first day and week of school. But our classified employees face these issues head on with the greatest of ease, because this is what we do. We love our students and we want what is best for them.
So please take pride that by 6:38 pm. today over 6000 classified employees had combined to care for, transport, enroll, feed, instruct, nurture, count, identify, etc. over 100,000 JCPS students and get them home safely.
You are amazing! You make the difference! You are JCPS Classified!
Let's have a great school year!
