JOHNSTOWN MIDDLE SCHOOL
TRAFFIC PATTERN FOR STUDENT DROP OFF/PICK UP
Construction to the main entrance of the middle school is projected to be complete by the end of October. Until the main entrance is complete, students, staff, and visitors will enter through the doors by the media center. In order to provide for the safest and most orderly drop off and pick up of students to the Johnstown Middle School, drivers will need to adhere to the following traffic and parking directions during school days:
PLEASE ABIDE BY THE DIRECTIONS BELOW AND WATCH CAREFULLY FOR CHILDREN WHO ARE WALKING TO AND FROM SCHOOL. JOHNSTOWN MIDDLE SCHOOL IS LOCATED ON THE SAME CAMPUS AS JOHNSTOWN HIGH SCHOOL SO THERE ARE MANY STUDENTS WALKING AND DRIVING TO SCHOOL.
Arrival and Dismissal (Williams Street)
Parents will come down Williams Street and line up in front of Searfoss Elementary. The buses will come down Oregon and line up in front of the Performing Arts Center to unload. Oregon Street is not to be used by car riders; only buses will use Oregon Street. Once students are dismissed from buses, parents will be directed to continue in front of the Performing Arts Center to drop off their students and exit onto Faye’s Freeway (the road that runs perpendicular with the middle school).
From State Route 37 (Main Street)
Cars will not be able to enter the middle school campus from either road off State Route 37 (Main Street). Faye’s Freeway will be a one-way street, only exiting the campus. Chambers Way, the road that runs beside the one-room schoolhouse, will be high school traffic only and flow through the middle school parking lot will be blocked.
Parking for middle school visitors is located in the lot in front of Searfoss Elementary and the Performing Arts Center. There is additional parking in the gravel lot on the hill across from the Performing Arts Center. Parking directly in front of the middle school gymnasium will be blocked due to construction. The back two rows of parking in front of the gymnasium and the parking on the south side of the gymnasium is for high school students only.
TO AVOID UNSAFE SITUATIONS AND UNNECESSARY TRAFFIC CONGESTION, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE DIRECTIONS TO ENTER OUR CAMPUS DURING ESTABLISHED STUDENT DROP OFF/PICK UP TIMES
(7:10 AM – 7:20 AM AND 2:20 PM-2:30 PM).

I wish for our staff, students, parents, board and greater Johnstown community a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving. We certainly have much for which to be thankful in the Johnstown-Monroe Local School District.
I am so proud of our football team, band, cheerleaders, coaches and student trainers for their excellent performance the past few weeks as our Johnstown Johnnies earned a Regional Football Championship and advance to the State Semi-Final. Our Johnnies will take on Wheelersburg at Jackson High School Stadium on Saturday night with kick-off at 7 p.m. I encourage the entire community to make the trip to Jackson City to root on our Johnnies Saturday. Our student athletes, band and cheerleaders deserve the full support of our community as they compete toward a State Championship. Last one leaving town……..please turn off the lights.
Construction will begin on our stadium facility by the first of the year now that the Guaranteed Maximum Price agreement has been authorized by the Board of Education for Robertson Construction to perform the work. The base cost of the new facility is $2.3 million for this facility that will consist of two locker rooms, two public restrooms, two concession areas, a meeting room, pressbox and breezeway. We are working to incorporate the entranceway from the Adams building into the entranceway of the new stadium facility. We have received a $550,000 settlement for the loss of our smaller facility that was built in 1974. We have also received a $350,000 donation which covers the cost of the meeting room and second concession. Other donations continue to be received toward this project to offset the board’s commitment of capital fund dollars. Park National Bank currently has a challenge they have put out to match dollar for dollar every donation made through the end of the calendar year up to $25,000. Please consider making your donation today to Johnstown-Monroe Local Schools to support the building of this new stadium facility. You may drop donations off to the School District Office at 441 S. Main Street, Johnstown, Ohio 43031 or click on the donation button found on the front page of our website. All donors will be recognized on a donor wall to be embedded within the new facility. All personal and corporate donations are welcome.
The Big Red Band will appear in Chicago’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Thursday, November 22, 2018 9:00-12 noon EST. You may watch coverage of the parade which begins at 8 a.m. CST and 9 a.m. EST on WGN, Direct TV channel 307, Dish Network channel 239, and Time Warner channel 16. Live worldwide streaming of the holiday event can be found at wgntv.com. We are so very proud of our Bid Red Band and wish them well on their trip to perform in Chicago. Note: The Big Red Band will be returning just in time to travel on to Jackson Stadium for the State Semi-Final football game.
Academically our staff is working hard to help improve learning opportunities for our students. This year we are working to streamline the massive Ohio Model Curriculum into critical concepts to be taught and providing professional development on the use of progress charts, tied to these critical concepts, to allow students, teachers and parents to more accurately monitor a student’s learning. You will be hearing much more about this work as the school year progresses.
Our Middle School Renovation Project Phase III is now complete and we will begin utilizing the main entrance to the building on November 27th. All traffic patterns will remain the same for drop off and pick up of students. The only change is that students and visitors will now use the main entrance through the safety vestibule to enter and exit the building. The entrance near the library will no longer be utilized for entry or exit during the school day.
