Dear JSS Families,
It is my pleasure to welcome you back to school and I hope this finds you rested and ready for the 2022-2023 school year!
Needless to say, it has been a very eventful summer! Between the fires, heat and staffing changes, we are all looking forward to the excitement of a new school year. Our district maintenance department has been working tirelessly to install our new HVAC system, so we've had to adjust some things that we would normally do to begin the year. Rest assured, our staff is committed to serving students and their families by working as a team to help each child reach their fullest potential. Our focus is on student growth and on meeting each child exactly where they are in their academic journey. This means that your child will receive instruction that is appropriate to their needs...when they need it! We are dedicated to creating a school environment and culture that hopefully leads to Jackson Street School being the “Greatest Place on Earth” for each and everyone who steps foot on our campus.
Families play a huge role in this. We urge you to take part as much as possible in the daily life of our school. Please consider volunteering in your child’s classroom, helping out your teacher or even joining our Yreka USD team. There are many areas where your help would be appreciated both at home and at school, depending on what your schedule permits. Don’t hesitate to contact our office about how to get involved.
Providing effective communication is a goal of ours this year. To help with this, we have a new FACEBOOK page and our SCHOOL WEBSITE will be updated regularly. Remember, your student's teacher is the best source of information to meet your needs. Please know, our office staff is also ready to assist you and our School Administrative team is available to discuss any concerns you may have after you have connected with your child’s teacher. We will be sending home more information in the first week of school, so check with your student, or visit our school website and Facebook page often.
I’m looking forward to a great year and to meeting all students and their families both at school and at Back to School Night!
Rich Sullivan, Principal
