Our Principal

Hello there and welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! As we begin another year, I am hopeful for some return to normalcy and the gift of seeing our students fill our hallways again! The 2019-2020 school year certainly presented some unique challenges, but we were able to overcome those challenges with hardwork and determination and I know we will enter this school year with that same passion and drive!

As we continue to navigate uncharted territory, I ask that we all work together to support our students. There will be guidance to follow as we keep student and staff safety at the forefront so please be patient as we move forward. Many practices that have been commonplace in the past may look different this year, but please know that every decision is made with student safety in mind. Please be sure to closely review the student handbook to learn how we will operate this school year while following CDC guidelines to the best of our ability.

Relationships and connectivity are very important to me, so please do not hesitate to reach out if there is anything I can do to help you or your child. The best way to reach me is either by email at jljohnson@jcss.us or by phone at 706-693-2246. Please feel free to contact me to set up a meeting as needed. That allows me to designate time for us to chat and to avoid excessive interruptions. During the school day, I try to be out and about interacting with students and supporting teachers so it can be difficult to meet on the spot so an appointment time is preferred. 

I hope that your child has an exceptional experience here at North Jackson and you feel their needs are met everyday to the best of our ability. I am sure we will make mistakes, but our intentions and hearts are all in for these kids and we strive to make sure they are loved and valued! I am so excited to return to school and I know our teachers are as well. Thank you for partnering with us to make this year successful! As the principal, I truly value family involvement in our school so please connect with us through social media, by attending school events, setting up a parent portal account, signing up for a Remind account and through the many other avenues we offer. A school is successful because of its families, community, staff and students and I know we have all the ingredients to be a successful school! I look forward to a wonderful year!
