Nov 8 - Bell Schedule Reminders and Principal Coffee

Hello JLS Families,

I hope you are having a good weekend! This short message includes important reminders about our special Bell Schedule and Calendar this week, as well as important information regarding Reopening Schools.  

Please note, Monday and Tuesday have different start times than usual: 

  • Monday, November 9 - Period 1 begins at 9:00 AM
  • Tuesday, November 10 - Period 5 begins at 9:40 AM
  • Wednesday, November 11 - No School in honor of Veteran's Day 
  • Thursday, November 12 and Friday, November 13 will follow our normal bell schedule. 

Please visit the JLS website to see the full bell schedule.  All secondary schools (JLS, Greene, Fletcher, Gunn and Paly) will be following the same bell schedule. 

Reopening Schools Update:

You may have seen questions from other parents on social media, but I wanted you to know where to access the most accurate information regarding PAUSD's Reopening Proposals.

For more information, please consider joining us during our two Parent Network/Principal Coffees (via Zoom, links in email) this week: 

  • Monday, Nov 9 at 5:30-6:20 PM
  • Thursday, Nov 12 at 8:30-9:20 AM

Submit Questions: For me and the JLS Admin Team to best answer your questions, please submit them via this Google Form: We will do our best to provide you with the most current and clear information we have, so that you and your family can determine which of the two potential options works best for you.  

I know there is a lot of information to process.  We hope that by pointing to where you can get more information and providing opportunities for you to ask questions and get answers, we are able to lower everyone's stress level and make this process as clear as possible.  

If you have specific questions regarding your student's health or their learning experiences, please reach out to their counselor or grade-level administrator. 

Thank you,

Chris Grierson, JLS Principal (
