JRE 2020-2021 Information and Updates

The John Rogers PTA is dedicated to providing as much information and updates as possible regarding the tenuous 2020-2021 school year.

Here is the most recent newsletter from Brent, links to SPS Covid-19 and school start information, and the Zoom Meeting PDF.

Dear John Rogers Families,

As Superintendent Juneau has recommended full distance learning this fall. We have committees hard at work to plan what distance instruction looks like as well as what our routines and procedures will look like moving forward.We also have committees meeting that will determine specific ways we will measure student learning, what we will do if students haven’t mastered something and what we will do if they have.

We are looking for volunteers to serve on the Building Leadership Team (BLT), Jessica Zou has graciously volunteered to serve, but if another parent is interested, we’d love to have them. If you speak Spanish, Amharic or Tigrinya, we’d love your help on BLT. If you are interested, please let me know.

A PDF of slides of July 8th community Zoom meeting is available by clicking here:  Staffing Presentation to Parents

Finally you can find a FAQ from Seattle Public Schools and will be updated weekly or as new information becomes available. This link was distributed by the Public Affairs office last Friday.

In partnership,

Brent Ostbye
