Student Schedules September 2021

Dear Jackson students and families for the 2021/2022 school year,

Student schedules for the 2021/22 school year have been distributed to current Jackson students in their A block class.

Student schedules have also been published to the MyEd BC Student and Parent Portals and will be available to view on the Portal until July 30th, 2021.  If your child does not currently attend Jackson, and you do not use the MyEd BC parent portal, your child’s current school will distribute hard copies prior to the end of the school year.

Please note: If your son/daughter has concert band in their schedule, English will not appear and will be added in prior to the start of school (alternating days with band).

Please email any questions related to student schedules to one of our counsellors:

Ms. Heather Buikema at hbuikema@sd83.bc.ca (last names A to K)

Ms. Nicole Cosh at ncosh@sd83.bc.ca (last names L to Z)

Staffing for September 2021 is not yet finalized and assigned teachers are still subject to change.  Counsellors will not be making scheduling changes based on preferred teachers.

Counsellors are available to respond to emails until Thursday, June 24.

They will also be available again at the end of summer: August 30 – September 2.

Thank you,

Mr. Steven Drapala

Principal

Please Wear Orange Tomorrow, Monday, May 31

Good evening Jackson Families,

Please wear orange tomorrow, Monday, May 31, 2021.

In light of the news last week regarding the mass grave of 215 children discovered at the site of the Kamloops Indian Residential School, and in support of all Residential School survivors and in remembrance of those that didn’t survive, their families, and the greater community during this difficult time, Jackson will hold an “Orange Shirt Day” tomorrow, Monday, May 31.

If able, we are encouraging all staff and students to wear orange for remembrance and support.  In addition, the flags will be flying at half-mast to mark this unimaginably sad discovery.

Thank you,

Steve Drapala, Principal
