EXCITING NEWS! Over the past year, the school district pursued a grant (the Final Mile Project) that would bring a high-speed internet provider to St. Johns. Our hope in pursuing this grant was to provide an option for high-speed internet for our students in their homes while also giving community members this much-needed option as well. In short, after a long process, we were awarded the grant and Triad Wireless (based in Phoenix) has installed towers at each of our schools and is now offering high-speed internet plans to community members. Attached is Triad Wireless' flyer that includes their contact number for any community members who are interested. A "line of sight" from your house to one of Triad's towers at one of our schools will be needed. If you call Triad Wireless, they can provide more details. Please note that the schools and the district have no control over Triad Wireless or their services. Once you sign up with Triad, you will be dealing only with Triad, not the schools. Students who qualify for free or reduced-price lunches and others may qualify for a discount on their internet services through the Affordable Connectivity Program. See website for details: https://www.fcc.gov/acp We hope that this high-speed internet option can be beneficial to some in our community.
Junior Parents & Guardians, this is for you!
We appreciate our local law enforcement officers for all they do each day and night to keep us safe! Thank you SJPD & ACSO!

Shoutout to Dave Eisley, one of our school board members. Dave has served for 8 years on the school board and his final term comes to a close this month. As many of you know, Dave was a longtime educator in the school district and did so much for so many students. We have sure appreciated his steady leadership over the past 8 years. We will miss you Dave!

SJUSD Community, Just by way of information, we had one of our buses go off the road this morning. No students were on the bus at the time, and the bus driver walked away from it with no injuries. Our mechanics are currently working on the bus and we hope to have it up and running again soon.
The Honor Choir concert will start at 7pm tonight. See you there!
THANK YOU SJUSD! Now that election results are final, we wanted to thank all of you who voted to keep the DAA override in place in our district. We feel so fortunate to be a part of a community that has always been so supportive of our schools. We will continue to use this money in ways that benefit students and keeps our schools great. Thank you!!
