Jean McNair Food Allergy Information

Food allergies are a growing concern in schools across America. Millions of children - children who are perfectly healthy and normal in every other way – must watch every single bite they eat, or risk suffering a severe or even life threatening reaction. In fact, food allergies claim over 200 lives and are responsible for over 30,000 emergency room visits each year.

Jean McNair Pick up and Drop Off Information

In order to improve building security, Jean McNair will no longer be offering drop off and pick up in the back of the building.  ALL students will enter the building either through the gym doors or the front entrance at the beginning of the day and they will exit the same way.
