Well, it looks like we’re out for one more day at home. Thursday, February 23rd will be another virtual day for students due to severe weather conditions and snow removal that comes with it. Please stay home and stay safe. The official email from the district will answer the majority of questions. For SoJo specifically, here’s what you need to know:
- Your teachers will be communicating expectations for what to do, but it will largely be continuing current work or enrichment activities, and not necessarily new work.
- Teachers will be available to answer questions via Zoom using these Zoom links from 10 am until 12 pm. They will also be monitoring email during that time.
- No school lunch will be served, and the building will be closed to the public. If you have questions, email is the go-to, as staff won’t be able to get to the building to answer phones so that parking lots can be cleared.
That’s it for now. We’ll send out any additional information as needed. We’ll see everyone back in-person on Friday on our regular Friday schedule.
Did you know there are a ton of cool classes you can sign up for as a SoJo student next year? Check some of them out in these videos to see examples of what you can choose:

It’s finally here! We’re back to school. 7th graders start tomorrow (half day) and everyone will be at school on Thursday (full day). For details about each day, read on.
7th Grade Orientation / First Half Day of School (August 17th)
This day is set aside just for 7th graders. We’ll run through all 7 classes, talk about common questions new students often have, and make sure you can find all of your classes.
- 8:00 am – 12:00 pm
- Buses will pick up and drop off students, and no breakfast or lunch will be served
First Day of School for All Students (August 18th)
This is our first full day of school with all students, and will run on our normal schedule – 8 am to 3 pm. Students will go directly to their 1st period class, and we’ll have lots of help in the halls to help them find it.
We have all seven classes every day, and a late start schedule on Fridays. On Thursdays, we also have PROWL, which is an intervention time for students to get help in specific areas. The bell schedule can be found here.

Want to get involved? Our school community council plays a vital role in our budgeting, instructional planning, and safety discussions. We meet four to five times a year, and would love to have you join us. Visit our School Community Council page to nominate yourself or someone else to join the team.
No PROWL the First Two Weeks of School
We won’t have our intervention time (PROWL) the first two Thursdays of school. We’ll begin having our regular Thursday schedule starting in September.
