Estimados padres/tutores,

 Espero que esta carta te encuentre bien. A medida que nos acercamos al emocionante hito de que nuestros estudiantes pasen al siguiente grado, quería tomarme un momento para abordar cualquier inquietud con respecto a las tarifas asociadas a la ceremonia de ascenso.

 Me complace informarle que no habrá tarifas asociadas con nuestra próxima ceremonia de ascenso. Entendemos la importancia de celebrar este importante logro en el recorrido académico de nuestros estudiantes y es nuestra prioridad garantizar que todas las familias puedan participar sin ninguna carga financiera.

Nuestro objetivo es hacer que este evento sea inclusivo y memorable para cada estudiante y sus familias. Creemos que cada niño merece la oportunidad de ser reconocido y celebrado por su arduo trabajo y sus logros durante todo el año. Para hacer esto, tenemos programadas 2 fechas de reunión para padres en JATS el miércoles 22 a las 10 a. m. y el jueves 23 a las 5:00 p. m. Para reunirse virtualmente el jueves, utilice el siguiente enlace:

Reunión de padres de octavo grado (EVENTOS)

 Agradecemos su continuo apoyo y cooperación mientras nos preparamos para esta ocasión especial. Si tiene alguna pregunta o necesita más aclaraciones, no dude en contactarnos. Esperamos celebrar con usted y su hijo mientras se embarcan en el siguiente capítulo de su viaje educativo.

Gracias por confiarnos la educación de su hijo. Por último, se adjunta un calendario de eventos para junio que detalla todos los próximos eventos.

 Un cordial saludo,

Ongoing Security Checks and Screenings 

Please be advised that we will be conducting daily security checks and screenings at the Joseph A. Taub School. These security checks began last year, and are now going to be a daily practice moving forward. The checks will utilize scanning technology. Backpack and locker searches will be conducted only if an event occurs that prompts such a search. We are currently using wands, and possibly asking students to open their backpacks.

This protocol began, as a result of an increase in prohibited items being brought into the school by students. Parents please continue to have open lines of communication with your child about what is acceptable to bring into school.

We want to be as proactive as humanly possible to maintain a safe and orderly environment for our students and staff here at JATS.

Security Checks and Screenings

Dear Parents,

Please be advised that we will be conducting random security checks and screenings at the Joseph A. Taub School. As we did last year, it is now going to be a daily practice moving forward.  As a result of the recent increase in violent activity around the city, we want to be as cautious as humanly possible to protect our students and staff here at JATS. The checks will utilize scanning technology and possibly backpack, and locker searches as well. I want to be clear that we have not had escalated incidents at the school, and this is merely in reaction to what is happening in the city. 

Sincerely,

Mr. Amod Field, Principal of Operations
