Weekly Updates for Sept 14 - 18

Message from the Principal

Good afternoon Jags!

We are in week 5 and just finished our first week of Phase 1! It was great to have students back on campus, even if they were not traveling to all their classes. For the rest of our Jags, hoping to see more of you soon. All of this depends on everyone doing their part to stay safe and well during this time. We will be emailing more information regarding Phase 2 and 3 later this week.

Parents/Guardians, were we need your help is discussing with your child the expectations of being on campus. When on campus, students must wear their masks at all times except while sitting in the cafeteria/courtyard eating or when actively exercising. Students must maintain social distancing while on campus. By following these expectations, we will be able to provide a safe place for students to slowly return to on-campus school.

Our virtual Greenback Night Meet the Teacher is tomorrow, Tuesday, September 15. We are looking forward to CTJ parents/guardians joining our online PTSA Welcome Back meeting and going through the virtual Meet the Teacher.

Progress reports for the first three weeks are viewable on the Student/Family Access portals. Please continue to work hard and keep up with your work and attendance. When you have a question, please reach out to your teacher first as they can help you directly.
