Important Dates

We follow the CBE Traditional Calendar. The calendar sets common start and end days, non-instructional days and holidays. For our school’s additional non-instructional days, late entries, early dismissal days and events, see our school calendar page.


Welcome

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our JCS Ravens to the 2019-2020 school year!  Please see below for important information:

Student Timetables

Student timetables will become available on PowerSchool on Friday, August 23 at 5:00 p.m.  We will not be issuing paper copies of student timetables, therefore; parents/students are requested to view student timetables through a web browser (Chrome is recommended).  

Considerable work has gone into the creation of the 2019-2020 timetables for all students. This process of course selection and program planning began formally in January.  Every effort was made to ensure that student timetables are accurate and personalized based on requests. In 95% of cases, students receive their course requests.  With the complex nature of the timetable and in striving to meet student requests, there is little room to make changes to timetables at this time. Students with any of the following issues will be given FIRST priority for timetable adjustments:

  • Grade 12 students missing graduation requirements
  • No courses or courses missing
  • Missing the prerequisite course to a scheduled course (i.e. did not complete Social Studies 20, but scheduled for Social Studies 30)
  • Courses in wrong order, e.g. Science 30 first semester, Science 20 second semester
  • Students took and passed prerequisite course at Summer School
  • Student has “See Counsellor” on timetable

If you are unable to access an electronic copy of your timetable on August 23rd, 2019 through the Power School Portal, please contact the office. 

If students require a change to their timetable, they must come in to the school as per the schedule below.  Email and/or phone call requests cannot be processed.
