Dear Parent(s) & Guardian(s),

We hope that you and your family are well during this challenging time. We are all faced with many challenges as we continue to move forward during this pandemic. The very nature of our school's name states that we are a "Community School." With that said, please know that as a Community School, we are here to support you. If you require academic, social services, or any other support, please let us know by contacting us at contactps15@jcboe.org.

Many of our parents have been working tirelessly and have taken on the role of a teacher. We know the added stress of your new role is not an easy one. Please be encouraged to continue to do your best and push your child while we all remain at home. The work that you are doing is appreciated and will help to ensure that students don't fall even further behind. We applaud your efforts and stand behind you. We can't thank you enough.
