Parents & Students –

Thank you for your patience and partnering with us as we all work together to educate our children. I know this can be frustrating. Our kids are home with us too, and we are all experiencing this new reality together. Please know that the teachers and staff at Smithville Junior High are working diligently to provide the best Distance Learning opportunities we can and to stay connected and available to our families.

Distance Learning:

  • Online – All Teacher virtual office hours, video meetings, and Google Classroom links are updated on the SJHS Teacher Contact Information & Virtual Hours form.
  • Paper-based – On Thursday 4/30, packets will be mailed out to all families who have indicated they prefer paper. This packet will include all lessons for the month of May.


Grades & Assignments:

  • Progress Reports were mailed home on Thursday 4/23
  • Assignment can be turned in through Google Classroom or by taking pictures of the work and submitting it via email or Remind.
  • Paper packets can be turned in to the Return Boxes by the school’s front doors on Mondays from 9am-8pm. However, submitting pictures is the preferred & quicker way to turn in assignments.
  • Grading Policy – Please read the new Grading Policy to understand our Pass / Incomplete system for the last 9 weeks. Students who do not participate in Distance Learning will receive an Incomplete and their promotion status will be reviewed by a Grade Placement Committee.


Student Belongings:  

  • We will be cleaning out lockers and bagging up student belongings. Then families will be able to come to the campus to pick up the bags.
  • May 11th – Curbside Pick Up! – Pick up student belongings & drop off library books, athletics gear, etc.


I know you have many other questions; we are here to help! Please email either administrator Chris Kelly at or Amanda Gommert at and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.

We miss our students, and we’re so disappointed not to be able to finish the school year with them.
