JUNCTION CITY SCHOOLS UPDATE: February 2017
Students have the constitutional rights to free speech, freedom of expression and freedom of assembly. We expect that students exercise these rights in a non-disruptive and peaceful way.
Yesterday, a group of student leaders informed school officials that they intended to participate in today's national day of immigration. The students were proactive and responsible for prearranging their absences and making arrangements to make up their work. Students were encouraged to discuss their plans with their families and secure their permission.
Our district is committed to safe, healthy and discrimination-free learning environments. Policies about student absences can be found in the student handbook. The District's nondiscrimination, anti-bullying and harassment policies and reporting procedures can be found in the district website at http://www.junctioncity.k12.or.us/policies/NonDiscrimination.html. Parents with questions pertaining to their own children are encouraged to contact school administration.
JUNCTION CITY SCHOOLS UPDATE: November 2016
I hope you all had a wonderful, restful Thanksgiving weekend! I can’t believe that the end of the first trimester of the 2016-17 school year is already upon us. A reminder to all that there will be no school for students next Monday and Tuesday, December 5th and 6th. Teachers will be working on their grades, participating in professional development activities, and hosting parent-teacher conferences at Territorial Elementary. Students will return to school on Wednesday, December 7th and then Christmas Break is around the corner. Our schools and District Office will be closed from December 19th until staff and students return on Tuesday, January 3rd.
There also are reports of possible inclement weather next week. Please be sure that you are subscribed to receive messages from “Blackboard Connect” (if you are not sure, you can check with Ronda Wheadon by emailing her at email@example.com ) You can also check our website (http://www.junctioncity.k12.or.us/) for information on snow routes, and to see notices regarding delays and closures when they are in effect.
What follows is the November 2016 issue of the Junction City Schools Update, along with some news from last night’s school board meeting. Happy reading, and stay warm!
