James Island Charter High School



    Good evening JICHS Community. 

    JICHS has set up a Google Voice number for you to call or text should you have issues with your JICHS Chromebook. The number is 843-779-6120. Please leave a detailed message or text of your concern or issue along with your name, student name, and information to call you back.

    Students can also take a picture of the work completed and text it to their teacher. In the number field of a text message, add the teacher's email address, upload a picture of the completed work and send the message. 

    Please see the email call out for more detailed information on buses that are providing Wifi at different locations in Charleston.

    We just received information that students will have until Thursday, March 26 at 12:00 pm to turn in any Quarter 3 work. Quarter 4 will begin tomorrow, March 25th. Please contact your child’s teacher with specific grading questions or concerns. There will be no Quarter 3 finals or mid-term assessments given as we are trying to be considerate of the stress level of our students. 

    We will also be distributing additional Chromebooks, if needed, at the high school Wednesday, March 25th from 9 am-11 am and Thursday, March 26th from 4 pm-6 pm. 

    School Buses WiFi-  Bus will be in front of JICHS daily from 12:30 PM - 4 PM, at the Food Lion, 1291 Folly Road 8 - 11:30 AM, and at the James Island Youth Soccer Complex, 871 Fort Johnson Road from 8 -11:30 AM. If the bus is not at the soccer complex due to the gate being locked, it will relocate to the front of James Island Charter High. Park within 100 feet of the bus. Make sure the driver knows you are there since the bus must be running to provide WiFi service. Open your WiFi and you will see a WiFi network called Bus 32644 (this is just an example). Join that WiFi. For this example, the password would be bus 32644  (no spaces and a lower case b). If you have questions, you can ask the driver. 

    Than you. Stay safe!

    If you have ANY questions, use the ASK THE LIBRARIAN link below and a they will forward your inquiry for you.
