January update


Good morning to our Jack James parents, guardians and students,


We are preparing to welcome our students back to face-to-face classes on Monday, January 10. We will continue our regular class schedule from January 10-19, with January 19 being the last day of regular classes with attendance being taken.  Students in PLP and RISE will continue in their program with their teachers until January 28.


Teachers in CORE academic classes will communicate with their students if their course will have an in-class final exam during the week of January 17-19. Final exams will be no jeopardy exams, which will not lower a student mark but give students an opportunity to replace a lower mark on a previous assessment.  With the recent announcement that diploma exams are cancelled, students in ELA 30-2 and Social Studies 30-2 are expected to attend their regular classes on January 11 & 12.


January 20 and 21 will be completion time designated for students to work with their teachers to complete any missing assignments or assessments for successful completion in their specific courses. Attendance is not mandatory. Teachers will be available to meet with students during our regular school hours. January 24 and 25 will be completion opportunities by appointment with teachers. Students are encouraged to have discussions a nd arrange with their teachers about meeting during completion time.


Teachers and staff will be available by appointment to work with students from January 26-28 for transition support going into semester 2.  January 31 is a Non-instructional Day for CBE students.


Semester 2 starts on Tuesday, February 1. Students can access their semester 2 schedule on MyCBE/Powerschool.


Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.​
