Principal's Message

Jan. 16

​Hello SJAMmers,
We have enjoyed seeing the smiling eyes of the students this week. Thank you for following the AB Health protocols by having students complete the daily check and staying home if they are displaying symptoms.  As indicated in an email yesterday, masks and rapid test kits have been given to students - enough for 1 week - two per day, 10 more to be distributed.  Please use a rapid test prior to returning Monday and then 3 days later before returning Thursday.  With Test kits now available the possibility for an increase in COVID positive results exists. Identification of asymptomatic students and staff may impact the school.  Please continue to be flexible, as things are ever changing. If your child was not here on Friday they will be able to get the test kit when they return to school. Monday. January 17 is day 6.Semester Change and Option ClassesStudents will complete their semester one Option courses on January 28th. Semester two classes will begin Tuesday, February 1st. Please ensure your student has logged into PowerSchool to check their scheduled options for the second semester.If a student requires a change to their Option class or has an empty block, they must see Mr. Bliss for an Option Change Request Form. This form must be completed, signed by both teachers and guardians, and returned to Mr. Bliss by Friday Jan 21st, in order to be considered. Please Note: Option changes will only be made if students have a strong reason or learning need. Changes will also be restricted based on class availability, so not all submitted requests will be possible.School Council Our virtual School Council meeting on Tuesday, January 18 at 6:30pm using Microsoft Teams. Mr. Bliss, our Learning Leader for Resource will be sharing information on what is happening at the school and updates with high school registration for our grade 9’s. We will also be sharing updates on activities at SJAM including the Covid-19 pandemic.  This is a great place to connect with other parents and find out what is happening at SJAM.If you were unable to attend our previous Council meetings this year and would like to receive an invite to access this meeting, please send an email to the jackpot and get your 2022 SJAM YEARBOOK for only $35. Our students have been working hard, going all in to make this year's book great. Purchase your copy by following the steps in this link. You can also get these details by visiting the school website. We hope you are having a safe and wonderful weekend.Darren, Andrea & Cat
