Dear families,

            The students hear me say often, “safety is my number one job and priority.” I know that safety and security are at the forefront of your mind when you send your child(ren) off to school each day. When your children are with us, the staff work diligently to ensure that all students feel safe and are well cared for.

            An important factor to ensuring the safety of all students and staff is to practice safety drills on a regular basis. We work with local law enforcement and emergency personnel to practice these drills both with their assistance and on our own. We try to bring a level of seriousness to the drills, without inflicting stress or fear for the students.

            Please know that if you have questions about our emergency drills and procedures, some of these questions can be answered through our family handbook which will be accessible again through our website soon. You are also always welcome to contact me with questions.

            The lockdowns that occurred at the middle and high schools last week, has created an opportunity for us to review again our safety and security measures that are in place at JFS. We will always continue to improve to best meet the needs of students.

            From all of us at JFS, we are wishing you a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season. Looking forward to seeing you all in 2019!

Dear families,

            The “season” seems to be a bit ahead of itself this year, with so much snowfall, while we are still in November. ‘Tis the season of giving, celebrations, and sometimes additional stress.

            What do you personally do to balance it all? What stress-relieving strategies do you practice? Which ones do you share with your kids?

            The JFS staff, along with staff across the SAU9 school district have been participating in a 5-week  “Well 100 Challenge.” Each week we have a different focus from hydration, to stress management to sleep, to exercise. As a staff we have great camaraderie, but we are also very competitive.  What better competition to have than a healthy one? And what better time of year, than this historically stressful season of the holidays?

            Share you or your family’s healthy habits with me via phone, written notes, email or in person by next Friday December 7th at noon and your family will be entered into a raffle for a gift card to The Local Grocer.
