A message from Principal Casperson

Congratulations Crimson Bear families! You have made it through the school

year. This school year marks the first full year post-pandemic without disruption,

adjustment or delay. Your student(s) navigated orientation, freshman first, four

academic quarters, countless spirit days, and a myriad of other high school routines

throughout the year. Give them a pat on the back, or a high five, or even a hug. We

did it!

Many of our students are attending summer school in one form or the other. If your

student is enrolled in live-time summer school our JDHS session begins on June

1st. These are full days, and attendance is mandatory. For students enrolled in a

PLATO (online) class, the lab will be open M, W and F for tests. All other work can

be done independently. The goal for all summer school attendees is to wrap up their

course before the end of the academic year, which is June 30th.

Based on your feedback we will make some adjustments to our communication

systems beginning next school year. Our daily bulletin will continue to be daily, but

the focus will be solely on student communication items. You as parents can still

subscribe so that you see what your kids see, and we will continue to post the link to

the bulletin on our website for reference. Our home newsletter will be issued

quarterly next year, in an effort to cut down on the repetitive information you are

already receiving via the Friday Message. The newsletter will focus on big picture

items and news. Finally, the Friday message will continue. It will be directed at

students and families and the focus will continue to be on information for that week

or the upcoming week. Your feedback indicated that the current Friday message

format (text, email and voicemail) is meeting your communication needs so we will

sally forth as we have been.

Mark your calendars for the fall Orientation dates now - we all know summer break

will go far too quickly. Last names H-O are August 7th, last names P-Z are August

8th and last names A-G are August 9th. Each day there are two windows of time to

attend, from 9-11 and again from 12-2. Freshman First day is scheduled for August

14th and the first day of the school year is August 15th. Check your mailboxes mid-

July - your back to school packets will be there before you know it!

Thank you for the opportunity to work with you and your students. It is truly a joy to

be at JDHS.
