Letter from the Principal

Dear LJMS Families and Students,

I would like to wish all of you in our LJMS community and family a safe, happy and relaxing winter break. With so much to be grateful for in what will certainly be remembered as one of the most challenging years we have faced together, I would like to acknowledge that our learning experiences this year could not have happened without  the contributions and dedication of our staff, our students, our PTA, and all of you. A very special thank you to the Vienna Foodies group on Facebook for coming together on 12/18 to deliver food for our families in need. Your care and support of our community has made a tremendous difference on the food we could provide our families over the extended break. We look forward to our continued partnership in the years ahead.

I wish you all a peaceful time in the weeks ahead and I look forward to our work in 2021, “WeRoarAsOne…in ’21!” Please consider joining the PTA once we return in January as we are doing some incredible work to support our staff and students. JOIN HERE. This will be the final Jackson Journal of 2020. We will return in January with more updates and information as to how we will return to school.

One detail all families will want to note is that per the proposal made by Dr. Brabrand on December 10th to the School Board, our new middle school bell schedule will be as follows beginning on January 12th, 2021: 7:30 to 2:00. As we return in January, we will share more information with all of you as to how this will impact both virtual and in-person students. 

Please note – January 4th will remain an asynchronous day with no scheduled intervention hours for students. Teachers will be participating in a planning day for synchronous instruction beginning on 1/5/21.

Message from Principal Magliola

Have a wonderful evening.

Mike
