  • SJS Online Community

    In mid-April, access to our online community will increase as you become an incoming family and will provide you with additional information and insight on the school calendar, programs, and resources, including an online directory with the most up-to-date contact information for members of the St. John’s community. Please use the username and password that you used to submit an application or sign the contract. If you have problems, please click on the "Having Trouble Logging In?" link on the login page.

    Each parent has his/her own profile and login information. Login information will not change for current parents and Alumni who already have an account with St. John’s. We encourage you to get acquainted with the website. A tutorial is available by clicking on Account > Getting Started. To access a handout on SJS website general information click here.

  • Security

    The School asks that parents place a small, circular SJS decal on the lower, passenger side of their car front windshield. Decals are available at the reception areas and parents' desks. We have fully implemented the Raptorware Visitor Management System to help track all campus visitors, including parents, vendors, and contractors. When school visitors check in, we will ask for a valid, government-issued form of identification (such as a driver’s license or passport) that will be scanned by the system. The IDs will be matched against the 50 states’ public sex offender databases, as well as data entered by the School on custody issues and restraining orders. The system will alert us to any person who might jeopardize the safety of the campus. This is not a comprehensive criminal background search—no other criminal information (traffic tickets, warrants, misdemeanors, or felonies) can be searched.

  • Carpool and Parking

    Cell phone use is prohibited while driving on campus. All cars must enter the Lower School and Middle School carpool lanes from West Alabama (Gate 9) for morning and afternoon carpool. The safest and easiest entry into the chute off West Alabama is from the westbound side (right turn). Lower School parents will stay to the right in the chute, and Middle School parents will stay to the left. If you have both Lower and Middle School students in your carpool, please default to the Lower School drop-off area.

    Five or six cars will be loaded at one time and then dispatched. Please abide by the seat belt law before leaving the chute; however, the driver may be directed to pull forward in the lane while passengers complete buckling their belts to maintain the flow on the carpool line. Drivers may not leave the car. If stowing backpacks in the trunk of the car is preferred, students must be able to independently load their backpacks in the trunk. Students will enter cars only from the right. When exiting the carpool, vehicles are required to make a right turn onto Buffalo Speedway.
