Provisional Transportation Waiver Program
The St. Johns County School District Provisional Transportation Waiver Program (PTWP) extends transportation services to students assigned to district schools based on space availability and criteria.
Follow this link to learn more about this program and to access the required application form.
If a student’s lunch account balance is below $0 they are only allowed to purchase a lunch with no extras. If you would like to keep track of your student’s account please sign into Paypams. If you would like to place a restriction on your student’s account you may send in a note to your student’s teacher, or email the Cafeteria Manager.
Birthday Treat Policy
It is important that we celebrate holidays and students while keeping everyone healthy. JCE feels strongly that these celebrations are part of the school experience. If families would like to send birthday treats for the class in honor of their child’s birthday, we ask that you send non-food items (i.e.: pencils, stickers, etc.). Our #1 priority is keeping all of our kids healthy and safe. If the classroom teacher sponsors a holiday party or other event, he/she will provide a list of food items that can be sent based on classroom allergies. We appreciate your understanding.
JCE Snack Policy
The purpose of a snack is to provide brain energy and stop young bellies from grumbling so students can focus and benefit from instruction. Snacks include but are not limited to small servings of fruit, crackers, granola bars, etc..
Candy is not considered a snack but may be allowed as a teacher reward at the end of the school day or
during celebrations at teacher discretion. Candy provides high levels of sugar, which may increase lack of focus and excessive physical energy followed by a sugar crash. Candy also acts as a distraction in the classroom when other students are focused on the candy. Having said that, the only exceptions are peppermints. There is research showing that the smell and/or taste of peppermint can have profound effects on cognitive function. Peppermint boosts reasoning, problem solving, memory and attention span. Students bringing candy as a snack will be asked to place it in their backpacks. Thank you for supporting this policy and our teachers.
eSchoolPlus Home Access Center (HAC)
HAC allows parents to view their child’s educational information, including report cards. Visit the District Home Access Center (HAC) page to learn more about HAC.
Parents, if it is necessary to change your student’s transportation during school, please fax (547-7985) a note prior to 2:15 pm (1:15 pm on Wednesdays) or you can email the Front Desk at [email protected]. Last minute changes are discouraged as they often confuse the student.
** Due to limited capacity we cannot issue guest bus passes. Students may only ride the school bus that they are zoned for.

FortifyFL is a website and app developed at the direction of the Florida Legislature. Any student, educator, parent or member of the public can report school safety concerns directly to law enforcement and school administrators anonymously and easily through the FortifyFL app or getfortifyfl.com.
This is just a reminder that anyone (parent, guardian, friend, neighbor, aunt, uncle) must have school access to attend an event at Julington Creek Elementary School, have lunch with a student and/or attend an awards assembly. If you have not already done so, please complete the School Access Form. The process for approval may take up to 4 weeks, so please fill out the application sooner than later for any guests that would like to have school access. Once the application is approved, school access will be valid for three years.
