Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year

On behalf of the staff at Jack James High School, I would like to welcome all students and their families to the 2021-2022 school year. As a staff, we are incredibly excited to welcome our new students and welcome back our current students, to reconnect with our families, and to offer you many opportunities, both in the classroom and in extracurricular activities, to grow, to find new passions and to get excited about school again.

Our back to school information is on our website at Jack James High School along with important dates for the school year. Students and families can also follow us on Instagram at @jackjameshs for school start-up, important dates, and daily school activities.

First Day of Classes-

Our first day of classes is Wednesday, September 1, 2021 and the school office is open to parents on Monday, August 23, 2021.

The first day of classes we will have a staggered entry as follows:

Grade 10 - Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021 - 8:30 – 11:30 AM 
Grade 11, 12 & Returning 12 - Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2021 - 1:00 – 3:13 PM 
Students will be able to access their course schedule on MyCBE/Powerschool on August 27. 

​I want to help to alleviate any stress that you might be experiencing and to let you know that we, the staff at Jack James, are so very excited to welcome you to the new school year.  I understand that you may be anxious about your school experiences over the past 18 months but please know we are aware of what you have gone through. As a school community we have emerged from this period much stronger and closer than ever, and we look forward to welcoming our new Grade 10’s into this culture of caring and respect. What we hope for is a year filled with exciting learning opportunities, skill development, athletics, clubs, and (fingers crossed), face to face learning each and every day!

​Moving forward into the 2021-2022 school year, we will continue to be vigilant and flexible, putting student and staff safety and wellbeing at the forefront of our daily routines. We will continue to enact all necessary health and safety protocols that are provided to us through our partners at Alberta Health Services and the City of Calgary. It is important that families stay connected to the school during the summer by email and social media for the latest information. Please provide our front office updated contact information so as not to miss important information.

Our staff is committed to keeping you safe, to providing you multiple opportunities to grow and learn, to knowing you as both a learner and a person, and to making this school year fun and engaging.

We look forward to connecting with all our students and parent(s)/guardian(s) in the coming days and weeks as we begin our exciting 2021-2022 school year. 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or Assistant Principals Warren Ferguson (last names A-L) or Nancy Farrell (last names M-Z) throughout the course of the year.
