Distance Learning Announcement 3/6

Dear HJIS Parents & Guardians,

Please allow this email to serve as a “Distance Learning” announcement (3/6).

This Friday marks the end of our first week of Distance Learning. We truly appreciate all of the hard work and effort displayed by our students, parents, and teachers. Our staff misses the energy that our students bring to campus, however, we will continue to tirelessly provide HJIS families with the best Distance Learning experience possible. 

We hope that you have an excellent weekend and enjoy some well-earned rest and relaxation.
