Have you ordered your yearbook?
Order your yearbook before Spring Break -price goes up $5 after Spring Break.
Mrs. Kronser orders the total quantity of yearbooks by end of April
Last year some students waited until May and were unable to receive a yearbook as a result. See Chanel in the front office if you don't know if you have ordered one or not.
Calendar Changed to Restore Snow Days
4 school days added back,
Students won't lose any learning time as a result of December's snow and ice. 4J has adjusted the school calendar to restore missed school days and balance the trimesters' length.
The four snow days will be made up on March 31, April 17 and 18, and May 23. This won't increase costs because staff will be paid to work the same number of days as planned.
The end of the second trimester and the March no-school days for grading, professional development and planning have been postponed by one week.
If any more school days are missed due to hazardous weather, they will be made up at the end of the school year.
