Update from Ms. Zezza:

Dear JYJ Families,

As you know we will continue to follow the district and states directives in regards to school, academics and any events at this time.  I just wanted to take a moment to personally thank every parent, student and staff member that has gone above and beyond to continue to support families in need.  It truly has been a beautiful story of our community and we could not support one another without you.  I am pretty sure Costco knows our school family well now.  We even had some of our JYJ’s pick up items donated from their neighbors in wagons for delivery.  If that doesn’t speak the heart of our JYJ family I don’t know what does. If you are a family in need, please feel free to reach out to our school staff to see how we can help.
