Sep 9 - Return to Learn Community Message

Hello JLS Families!  

I hope the fourth week of school is going smoothly, and despite the eerie weather and light outside, you and your family are enjoying the day. 

This message is short and sweet.  We only have a few reminders and updates to share: 

JLS Principal's Coffee: 

Today we had our first Principal's Coffee for the 2020-21 school year, and we will have one each month to help increase the awareness of our school's efforts to support students and bring our community closer together.  Here is the presentation.  We are in the process of scheduling monthly Grade-Level Parent Network Meetings too, so stay tuned!

Progress Reports:

It's hard to believe we are already near the middle of our First Quarter of the school year.  Progress Reports will be available at the end of next week. Progress Reports are used to notify all students and parents of a students’ current standing in their courses. At this time of the school year, Progress Reports serve as a "check-in" by indicating how a student is doing so far. If you have any questions regarding your student’s Progress Report, please reach out to their teachers for more information, or check their Schoology account.

Superintendent’s Update:

Last Friday, Superintendent Austin shared pertinent information regarding district programs and the potential dates and opportunities for re-opening PAUSD. Please read more information here: Superintendent's September 4th Update.

Communication Update:

We are sensitive to the fact that families may be inundated with information coming from many sources, including our school sites and district. In order to focus on the most pertinent information, we will be sending our next community message after the PAUSD Board meeting (9/22) on September 23 with any district updates.

If you have any questions, please continue to reach out to me or any member of the JLS Team listed below.  

Stay safe and healthy, 


Chris Grierson, JLS Principal,
