Principal's Message, September 28, 2021

September 28, 2021   


Dear Johnson Families,

I want to welcome everyone back to Johnson School for the 2021-2022 school year.  We are glad to be back and off to a great start despite the ongoing pandemic.  

Thank you to all the Johnson Families who participated in this year’s Back to School Nights.  If you were unable to attend, you can still view my presentation on the Johnson website and the teachers’ presentations on their class page.   

If you have not yet completed your Back to School Forms in the Parent Portal, please do so.

We have three weeks of school wide activities scheduled in October!  October 4th – 8th is the Week of Respect, October 18th – 22nd is Safe School Week and October 24th – 29th is Red Ribbon Week.  Visit the Johnson website to see the activity for each day.  Please show your H.C. Johnson School spirit and join in!  Johnson Website

Fall Pictures are scheduled for Wednesday, October 13th.  This year we will be taking class photos as well as individual photos.  Please read the procedures below regarding class pictures.  If you do not want your child to participate in class pictures, you must notify the school in writing by October 11th . 

Students will be arranged on risers standing shoulder to shoulder. 

We are unable to photograph the students socially distanced – 3 feet apart.

Students will wear their masks as they are arranged for the picture.   At the very last minute the photographer will ask them to remove their masks and hold it in hand.

When the group image is captured the students must immediately replace their masks as they leave the area.

IMPORTANT - Back to School Forms

Thank you to all our parents and guardians who have completed their Back to School Forms already this year.  If you have not yet completed your forms, please do so.
