Principal's Message, November 20, 2020

Dear Johnson Families,

As we journey through the upcoming holiday season, I would like to take a moment to wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season!  I would also like to thank the Johnson families and staff for all the hard work and patience demonstrated the past few months in these uncharted times.  We will continue to work together to help our Johnson students be safe and successful.


Just a reminder we have a shortened day on Wednesday, November 25th, this means that no virtual classes will be held after 1:55pm.  School is closed November 26th and 27th for Thanksgiving. 


Please take note that the Hybrid Group 1 and 2 rotations have changed beginning November 30th.  Please see the Updated District Calendar.

District Calendar 2020-2021


Conferences will be held virtually December 1st – December 3rd.  Shortened days will take place during conferences.  This means no virtual classes will be held after 1:55pm. 


School Pictures will take place on Tuesday, December 1st for Group 2 students and Wednesday, December 2nd for Group 1 students.  If your child attends school 5 days a week or attends Remote Learning Academy, please check the teacher’s class page for more information.  A sign-up schedule for Remote students was emailed to Remote Learning parents on Tuesday, November 17th.  Informational picture packets for In-Person Learning were distributed this week.  You can order your pictures online at BNL School Pictures                                  After signing in to the website enter code 7A6U5T8Y
