Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

January 4, 2021 Message to Parents

​Dear Janet Johnstone Families,
Welcome to 2021! I trust that you had a relaxing break with your family. It certainly was a unique break for us all! As you already know, our first week back has been mandated as Learning At Home, Scenario 3. Please see below for important reminders about how this week will look.
I would like to extend a very large THANK YOU to Mrs. Schmitt and Ms. Galvin for taking on their acting designations during my absence in November and December. They both worked extremely hard to keep the school running smoothly. I was very impressed by their dedication to the Acting Principal and Acting Assistant Principal roles- they both took on the work with positivity, professionalism and an eagerness to learn about the roles. Thank you to Mrs. Paul for continuing to support the administrative team through her Learning Leader designation. Mrs. Paul takes her music and learning leader position to new heights each day.
I would also like to thank all of the JJ teachers and support staff for their incredibly hard work leading up to Winter Break and in preparation for Learning At Home this week. Their hard work has not gone unnoticed!
To all of the parents and students in the JJ community- THANK YOU for the many well wishes and positive thoughts that I received during my medical leave. I have felt very cared for, even during my absence. The power of a simple note can speak volumes, and I cherished every single one! I am so happy to be back at work and starting the new year feeling very healthy. Walking into my office this morning filled me with so much happiness- I received some very lovely notes from many, many students. The welcome back decorations put a huge grin on my face! I very much look forward to seeing all of the students when they return on January 11.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me directly at  
Please note, for this week only, the school office hours will be 7:30am – 1:15pm. Mrs. Stahl will be answering the phones during the school office hours.
Please read the information below very carefully:

You will also find other learning activities in the Google Classroom for other subjects and a suggested schedule you can follow with your child.

You will also find links to online resources for your child to explore.
