iPad Self-Protection Plan
Students in grades 6 - 8, who have enrolled in the C. L. Jones Middle School iPad Self-Protection plan are able to take their school issued iPad home. This plan is a crucial part of digital learning at the middle school. The self-protection plan offers families protection against the high cost one will incur if their student accidently breaks their school issued iPad.†
Digital devices are an outstanding tool one can use to expand learning opportunities for all students, however, they are expensive. The iPad, cover, charger, and cable purchased for our middle school students has a replacement cost of nearly $500. Replacing an iPad completely does happen but the biggest issue is replacing a broken iPad screen. The cost of replacing a screen runs anywhere from $112 to $150 depending on other repairs which need to be done resulting from the damaged screen. The cost to enroll in the self-protection plan is $35. With the self-protection plan a student iPad will be insured against accidental damage or theft up to $200. Any repair or replacement cost above $200 will be charged to the student, parent, or caregiver.
The key components of the middle schools self-protection plan:
Student's are financially responsible for repairs to their school issued iPad that are determined to be the result of negligence. The self-protection plan is a financial safe guard against the high price of repairs. One may download the self-protection document, complete the form and return it to the middle school office with a check for $35 to be enrolled in the plan immediately.†

Any student not enrolled in the self-protection plan will have access to their school issued iPad at school from 7:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Thursday, and 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM on Friday.
Student drop off and pick up at CLJMS
Construction of the new Minden High School has begun and changes have occurred affecting traffic flow and parking. Patrons will no longer be able to use the north and west parking lots of C. L. Jones, or drive on Gilman between 5th and 3rd street. In addition, 3rd Street between Park and Gilman will be one way going west. These changes will affect where parents will be able to drop off and pick up students from school.†
Students attending C. L. Jones Middle School may be dropped off at the east doors on Park, or the main entrance prior to 8:05 AM. After that time students may only enter the building through the front door of the building on 3rd Street. Please remember, there is no parking on the north side of 3rd Street east of the main doors, from 7:30 AM to 8:30 AM.†
After school our busses will park two wide on 3rd Street. While the busses are there parents will be expected to park on Park Street to wait for their students. Parking in front of C. L. Jones is allowed once the busses have departed.

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."
Robert F. Kennedy Capetown, June 6th 1966
