If you have not used the Parent Portal, please refer to the email sent by Kathy McGrath with login information. You can also email or call the JAMS office beginning August 15th for assistance.


If you DO NOT complete the online portion of registration prior to “Pick-Up-Your-Stuff” Day, you must begin in the computer lab. This will increase the amount of time spent at JAMS on August 15th.

Remember – if you are new to SMMUSD, you need to have formally enrolled with the school office FIRST so that we know you are going to be attending JAMS. The school office is open starting Thursday, August 1 if you need to enroll.

“Pick Up Your Stuff” Day, formally known as Registration Day is Thursday, August 15, 2019

On this day, you will pick up PE Clothes, the student planner and obtain your tentative schedule of classes. You will also have the option of making direct donations, purchasing school pictures and yearbooks. We accept all major credit cards, checks or cash.  Food and refreshments will be available for purchase on “Pick Up Your Stuff” Day on August 15th.

Photo ID’s will be taken on Friday, August 30th, during PE classes.
