School Policies

Morning Drop-off and Early Care

A schedule for early morning study hall will be announced soon. Parents will need to escort their children to the auditorium and sign them in on the first day, as well as complete the agreement letter (these will be available the 1st day of study hall).  As a reminder, study hall is a work period for students.  Students must come and complete Imagine Math, homework, and reading (in that order). Sitting and talking, or sitting quietly but unproductively, will result in a student being banned from study hall.

Unless your child is signed up for early morning study hall, enrolled in YMCA Fun Company or part of the Early Morning Spanish program, your child cannot be on the JT Moore campus before 8:40 a.m. Once enrolled, students cannot be dropped off for study hall before 7:30. YMCA Fun Company begins at 7:00 a.m. and held in the cafeteria.

Students who arrive at 8:55am or later will have to be signed in by their parent/guardian. Students can no longer arrive late and sign themselves in. Please be on time to school.

Dress Code

Students at JT Moore are given latitude in choosing what to wear to school each day.  The updated dress code policy is posted here.  Upon a 4th violation of the dress code policy, a student will be required to wear a polo shirt and Khaki pants to school for the remainder of the school year. Please ensure that you and your child review the dress code policy.  It will be enforced with fidelity.

Medical Info

JT Moore has an on-site Nurse for assistance with any student’s medical needs. She works in several schools and is not dedicated to JT Moore all-day, every day. Please contact Nurse Kallie Pistrang for more information at klpistrang@mnps.org.

School sports begin right away in the Fall. For a 6th-8th grade student to try out for one of our teams, he/she must have a completed sports physical dated after June 1, 2021.  This is a yearly requirement.  Your doctor may have the form, or you can get the sports physical paperwork in the front office of JT Moore. You may also find the forms here.

All 7th graders must have an updated immunization record on file that includes the state required booster shots.

Pick-Up & Aftercare

Cell Phone Policy

Students are permitted to bring cell phones to school, but they must be powered off and kept in their locked lockers during the school day. The school day begins when a student enters the JT Moore campus. The end of the school day is when students have been dismissed from their classrooms to go home. Students may not use cell phones during the bus ride home. In the event a student has their cell phone out, it rings, the student is texting, etc., the following consequences will occur:

There are more than 80 landlines in the school and parents needing to get in touch with their children can call the front office at 615-298-8095 to do so.
