Little Jammers Update
At this time, St. Joan of Arc will be postponing all Little Jammerz’s music instruction until September 2020. We would ask that all family who have registered for the program please keep the guitars in a safe location in your homes until then. This option would allow families to obtain a credit for the weeks missed due to school closures which will be used in September. Should you have any questions please contact Little Jammers at email@example.com
The planning process that will result in the school /class organization for the 2020-2021 school year will begin shortly. Please click HERE for more information. All placement information must be submitted before Friday, May 8th, 2020.
School Cash Online Refunds
A note to parents and guardians who have requested a refund for the costs of field trips, food programs, or other school-related items purchased through School Cash Online. Due to the high volume of refunds currently being requested, School Cash Online is experiencing processing delays. This means that it may take longer than usual for funds to be deposited back into your accounts. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.
