Students of the Month - September



Our Student Information System is named Illuminate.  Illuminate contains a Parent/Student Portal component. 


PARENT PORTAL Due to confidential information, this portal is only for legal guardians/parents to use.  A legal guardian/parent must show ID in the school's front office in order to obtain their Parent Portal Access Key.  This Access Key will give you rights to set up an account in the Parent Portal. This portal will give you access to more areas than the Student Portal.  In this  portal, you can view grades, attendance, assessments, transcripts, some discipline and demographic data.    You can also set up the Parent Portal to send you an email when your child has a missing assignment.  The Parent Portal access can be found at


STUDENT PORTAL:  The Student Portal is for student access to view their grades, take online assessments, and view attendance.  Students can obtain their access key at school.  Passwords and usernames are the same as last year.  The Student Portal can be found at

As a reminder, we do not take message for students.  This is a safety feature for the protection of your child.  If you would like to speak with your child before the end of the school day, please make sure you call our office PRIOR to 1:30pm.  After 1:30, we can not guarantee we can get the message to your child to call your phone number that is listed in the school database. 

Today: 1/24/17



For the 2016-2017 school year, all students new to Twentynine Palms Junior High are required to take an English and Math Placement test.  Please call the front office at 760-367-9507 for details on registration and placement testing dates.  Due to the Registrar being on summer break, your name and phone number will be required so that the Registrar can call you back on August 4th to schedule the Placement test.   


California law requires that ALL incoming 7th graders must have the "Tdap" booster prior to starting school this fall for the 2016-2017 school year. Students who have not received their Tdap booster will NOT be allowed to start school in August 2016.


New state law SB277 states that personal and religious beliefs exemptions (or waivers) are no longer valid.  Those students with waivers signed during elementary school must now meet ALL school immunization requirements, including Tdap, for 7th grade.



No Shots? No Record? No school.

Children will not be enrolled unless an immunization record is presented and immunizations are up-to-date.*

*If your child is unimmunized due to religious, personal or medical reasons, please notify us.  California started on January 1, 2016, exemptions based on personal beliefs, including religious beliefs, are no longer allowed.
