The 2021-22 school year is nearly upon us. It is going to be a great year! The first day is Sept. 1 and will only be the Meet & Greet session that is scheduled with the student’s teacher. At this meeting families can meet the teacher, visit the classroom, bring in their school supplies, and visit the office to pay fees, drop off medications or any other forms we may need. If you do not have a session scheduled, call the office at 608-743-7000.
Masks are required in all SDJ buildings at this time.
Classes begin September 2nd
The first full day of school is September 2nd. Students should arrive no earlier than 8:05 am and will wait outside at specific doors on the back playground, entering at the 8:15 bell.
Parents will be asked to say their good-byes outside the door each day. School dismisses at 3:08 pm daily. Your child will come out the same door they enter in the am.
Every year all students must have a completed online registration in Infinite Campus. If you have multiple students enrolled in the School District of Janesville, you will use the same login information for all of them. If you do not know your password, you can call the Roosevelt office at 743-7000 for assistance in generating a new password.
Adult supervision is provided on school grounds from 8:05 a.m. until the first bell rings at 8:15 a.m. Students should not be arriving at school earlier than 8:05 a.m. unless they are participating in a special activity (i.e. Safety Patrol, Choir, Robotics, etc.) Please note, students will not be allowed in the building during inclement weather until 8:05 a.m.

The registration fee for students in Kindergarten through grade 5 may be paid online via electronic check or debit/credit card on the PAYMENT tab in Infinite Campus . The transaction fee for online payments has been waived once again this school year. A reminder when paying online, the minimum payment is $10. You can combine payments (fees, lunch accounts, field trips) to meet the $10 minimum. If you prefer to pay in exact cash or check, please come to the school office.
Our school-wide PBIS program uses an online communication and classroom management tool called Class Dojo. We would like all parents to sign up for Class Dojo on your phone or computer so that you can easily connect with your child's teacher and see daily progress on their behavior, as well as what is going on in the classroom and in the school. If you are not connected to Class Dojo, please ask your child’s teacher for assistance.
