I hope your week is going well. On Monday, May 3, we experienced a silver-lining moment within the conditions of Distance Learning: The JLS Staff and I participated in 8th Grade Conversations. These were intentional meetings with each of our current 8th grade students, and they followed our long-standing tradition of 8th Grade Exit Interviews. ...
Today we saw the largest number of in-person students so far all year: 461! (This includes our 190 Hybrid 6th grade students and our 271 7th and 8th grade students). If your child is either at home or in-person, I hope that their week is going well and they are feeling like there is a clear path ahead of them towards the end of our school year. It’s hard to believe we now have fewer than five weeks to go!
I hope your week is going well. Today we saw the largest number of in-person students so far: 424! (This includes our 187 Hybrid 6th grade students and our 237 7th and 8th grade students). If your child is either at home or in-person, I hope that their week is going well and they are feeling like there is a clear path for them to take towards the end of our school year. It’s hard to believe we have less than six weeks to go!
We hope your week is going smoothly, especially since this week we have been working through CAASPP testing and dealing with the unexpected interruptions due to Schoology outages. This can be a stressful time of year, and we greatly appreciate your patience and flexibility as you support our students at home.

I hope you are looking forward to Spring Break. This has certainly been a challenging time, and my own children (a 7th grade daughter and 5th grade son) are very excited to have a break from their own school routines. I hope that you and your loved ones enjoy the time Spring Break provides to rest, relax, and rejuvenate.
However, before we get to Spring Break, we do have a few important reminders and announcements for you to be aware of. ...
