What's Happening at JPE?
August 2021 - Welcome Back!!
A Message from the Principal
Our teachers have been working hard all summer to prepare for the 21-22 school year and are eager to meet all of their new students. We know there are a lot of questions right now, but we are committed to making it the best year yet!
We are putting protocols in place to keep students safe. We will be practicing social distancing and static grouping to the maximum extent possible. We will also comply with Governor Edwards's statewide mask mandate. We are aware that some of our younger students will struggle with this, and we will work with them through this adjustment.
We will host Meet the Teacher on August 9th for all 1st - 5th grade families. All family members should wear a mask while on campus. Teachers' classrooms will be open for supply drop off and a quick visit with your teachers. We encourage you to distance as much as possible. You will receive an email on Friday, August 6th announcing your student's teacher.
We have gotten Leap scores, and they will be sent home with students the first day of school. JPE performed exceptionally well - and even showed growth during a pandemic year! We could not be prouder of our students and staff!
We can't wait to see you next week!
