Mr. Stephen Knowlton
Dear Parents and Students:
I am happy to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children will achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in these trying times our children need support from both the home and school. Here at Jay High our goal is to strengthen our bond knowing that it will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.
I want to assure you that during these uncertain times, you can count on us
• To keep you informed,
• To address your concerns,
• To ensure that your child has the tools necessary to be successful,
• To provide the highest quality education, no matter the platform.
Please know that decisions are made daily that are in the best interest of our students to ensure their safety and leave you with a peace on mind. With that said, our first day of school will be August 24, 2020. As more details arise, we will provide you with the logistics.
If you have not already done so, please go into our new student information system (FOCUS) to establish your account as a parent. The instructions are on the district’s website (www.santarosa.k12.fl.us) concerning how to make this connection. Please let us know if we can assist you with making this happen.
Every day will truly be a new adventure as we all do our best to mitigate the Corona virus. Student, teachers, and visitors will be required to wear a face covering while on school ground. This is not only for the protection of the individuals on campus but also for our loved ones at home; we don’t want to transmit the virus home inadvertently.
Stay safe and remember, it is great to be a Royal!
