JGHS Students and Families, Last night the Board of Education voted on our model of learning for the month of May. They decided to continue with Remote Learning with the option of attending school in person. This has been the model that we have been following all semester, minus the past three weeks. As of now we will assume that your student will continue with their prior commitment starting May 3rd. If they were attending in person we will assume that they will be coming back to the building, if they were learning from home we will assume that they will continue learning from home. If you would like to change your student’s commitment either way, please contact us in the main office and we will get that changed for you. The phone number is 989-684-7510 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. Have a great day!
