Ms. Gorkoff met with all Jack James students on Monday, February 4 to remind them of expectations around attendance and behaviour at school. Many students have been taking extended breaks during and between classes, and staff is working to change those habits so that students are in class and engaged in learning. Grade 12 students' participation in graduation could be impacted if they have extended unexcused absences this semester. We have encouraged all our students to be in classes on time.

Thank you for your support,
