If your child is receiving an award, you should have received a letter in the mail. However, the exception to that would be A Honor Roll, A/B Honor Roll, or perfect attendance. Letters were not mailed home for these accomplishments, since this information was only pulled a few days ago. If you are not sure if your child will be receiving an award, please call the JH office to make sure. We don't want you to miss your child being honored with an award!

Quitman ISD will cancel classes for Thursday, May 9th. The threat of additional rain overnight, and our inability to get buses to many of our students were major factors in this decision. We want to keep your kids safe. We will not have to make this day up. Have a restful day and stay safe.
Parents please be patient as we try to get your children home to you. Our buses are on their routes and going slow. We are also making sure there is a parent or an adult home before we leave the students.
Due to flooding QISD will be releasing students early. Parents may begin to pick their students up immediately. Buses will be boarding at approximately 1:30. If there is no parent or guardian at the house the students will be brought back to their home campus. If the bus can not safely get to your house your child will be brought back to their home campus. Parents that normally pick up their children need to pick them up at their normal pick up area.
Yearbooks are on sale for the final time this year! You can purchase your yearbook for $58.00. See Coach Miller or pick up an order form in the office! Deadline to purchase is May 27, 2019

The spring Robotics class visited The Waldo Way, a robotic Guernsey raw milk dairy farm right here in Wood county. Students learned about how the robot is able to recognize each cow, check the health of each cow, as well as check milk quality each time they milk.
