Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout outs. Please check in often and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Free Breakfast and Lunch for All Students

The USDA has approved a nationwide waiver due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic that all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, can receive a free reimbursable breakfast and a free reimbursable lunch at school. The Indiana Department of Education has now given Indiana Schools the approval to start. JCSC will be taking advantage of the program beginning Monday, September 14, 2020. According to the USDA, this program is currently in effect until December 31, 2020, or until the depletion of funding. If you have an outstanding balance, please contact the office to make arrangements to pay it.
