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).

Johnstown-Monroe Local School District
December 14, 2018
2018 has been a great year for the Johnstown-Monroe Local School District. Our teachers, administrators and students have been working hard to improve instructional practices to enable our students to achieve at higher levels. The music department continues the strong traditions of exceptional plays, vocal/instrumental concerts and how about that Big Red Band who recently traveled to Chicago to march in their Thanksgiving Day Parade! Our student athletes are incredible. They work hard year round to produce great winning seasons and championships. Our golf, baseball, softball, cheerleading, track/field, lacrosse, basketball, wrestling, volleyball, and football players all performed exceptionally well in 2018. And the entire community celebrated with our varsity football team as they broke school records and brought home the State Runner-up trophy. We were able to complete the construction of a new high school as well as the renovation of the old high school which is now being used as our middle school. Our community this year renewed the income tax and emergency tax levies that were critical for our school district to continue its improvement efforts. Yes 2018 was a great year indeed for our school district.
Looking forward to 2019 we will be working to continue our efforts to improve instruction and the academic achievement of our students. Training is currently underway to streamline our curriculum into critical concepts to be taught while implementing progress scales so that students, teachers and parents can more easily monitor student progress in learning those critical concepts. We will be breaking ground in January for the rebuilding of our stadium facility. In June we will commence with the site work to repair and pave the parking areas in front of the middle school, performing arts center and the educational center. New sidewalks, lighting and a new bus lane will be part of this summer project. The new softball field, currently under construction, will be completed. And the administration and board of education will continue to analyze ways in which we can improve curricular offerings, student transportation, parking and other services.
The holiday season is a time of reflection, celebration and looking forward. My friends we have much to celebrate in our school district. We have wonderful students, parents, administrators, teachers, staff and board members all working to develop the best possible school experience for our children. As we reflect upon 2018 we can be proud of the many improvements and accomplishments brought about by all of us working together. We can celebrate those amazing accomplishments while looking forward to a positive and exciting 2019 where we can together do even greater things for the children of this great community.
I wish each of you a very blessed Christmas, New Year and Hanukah as we enter our mid-year break for classes. Enjoy this special time of year with your family as you reflect, celebrate and look forward.
