Principal Notes - May 24, 2022

THANK YOU, FAMILIES!  We are almost finished with the school year!  This will be my last Principal Notes of the year.  Thank you, students, families, faculty, staff, and fellow administrators, for another wonderful year.  I am so excited to be able to close the school year in a more “normal” way.  I want to thank each of you for making our community unique, strong, and special.  It takes a special kind of commitment to be a Jaguar!  I am so proud of everything we have accomplished together.  I hope you have a wonderful summer break!

COVID CASES ARE ON THE RISE  This week, we have seen numerous new cases of COVID enter our buildings.  We are not providing individual notifications of exposures anymore.  So, if your student becomes ill, please monitor for COVID symptoms and follow the CDC guidelines for quarantine and isolation.  Above all, please stay safe and healthy!

COVID TESTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR PICKUP IN THE OFFICE We have more than 400 boxes of COVID tests available to our community.  If you would like to pick up some for your family to use over the summer, please stop by the office.  We will hand them out (maximum of 4) until they are gone. 

LAST DAY TO FIND YOUR LOST ITEMS AT SCHOOL  Tomorrow will be the last day to check the Lost and Found for your missing items.  All remaining items will be donated or discarded at the end of the week.  Please check the tables outside of the office.

PICK UP MEDICATIONS BY FRIDAY, MAY 27 Our clinic is not able or allowed to store medications over the summer.  If you have medications in the clinic, please stop by the office to pick them up by 2PM on Friday, May 27.  All medications will be disposed of at 3PM on Friday.

FINAL EXAMS ARE TOMORROW  Please click HERE to see the final exam schedule for Wednesday, May 25. Please make arrangements to pick up your student as close to their dismissal time as possible.  If you are picking up your student in the parking lot, please watch for students.  We had a few near misses today.


As we close out the school year, some of our staff will not be returning for the next school year.  Mr. Williams has announced his retirement from JA as our Dean of School Culture.  However, he will continue to be a part of our community next year as he continues to be the Boys’ Junior High Soccer Coach and a parent of a member of the Class of 2023.  I would like to take time to recognize and thank him for the amazing impact he has made on our community in the three short years he has spent with us.  If you feel compelled to do so, please take some time tomorrow as he spends one final morning greeting the students of JA to share with him your well wishes.  He will be missed!
