Welcome to SAS Jackson!

The following email was sent to families of next year’s grade 9 students:

Dear Future Jackson Families!

While we are just over the halfway mark in what has been an incredibly challenging year, we are deep into planning for next year and are ready to proceed with course selections. There is still some uncertainty around what, if any, restrictions may still be in place for schools next year, but we will be prepared for all scenarios.

As new to Jackson students, our team will be visiting all feeder schools – of course adhering to all safety procedures. Our visit will be to provide information to next year’s grade 9s. After these information presentations, students will be bringing home a course planning sheet to review with a parent/guardian and return to their current school (please follow your school specific deadline for submission).

The formal course selection process will be completed using these forms, or online (specific to your student’s school). The course selection process will close prior to spring break.

A specific schedule for your student’s school is available on our website, here: https://jlj.sd83.bc.ca/course-selection/

Normally, part of this process includes a Jackson open house, which is a chance for parents to hear from the Jackson team, and ask questions about life at high school. Regrettably, we are unable to offer this same experience this year. We are still exploring ways we can connect with you, and field your questions – stay tuned for more information on a modified parent night experience.

We are excited to officially start the welcome to Jackson process, and look forward to getting to know our incoming students and families.

Welcome to SAS Jackson – A Culture that Cares!
