Here are the highlights for the Weekly School Messenger Call for the Week of March 22nd!

Although our school campuses will be closed through April 15, we have plans to resume instruction on March 31 through Distance Learning.

We are currently working on the JWMHS plan to distribute technology to those families that do not have devices. Please know that we do not have enough devices to give a device to every JWMHS student. We will do our best to work with families, but if you have a device, we ask that you are considerate of the circumstances with which we are faced. We intend to distribute this plan as soon as possible.

We hope that you are all healthy and that you are staying home. How many of you have waited to hear the principal tell you to stay home? We sincerely ask that you do so and practice social distancing during this time.

We have currently moved our Prom to May 23rd at Innisbrook. As of right now, the graduation date has not changed. Of course, this information is fluid and as we have information we will get it to you.

It is always our intent to keep you informed of events that impact our school community. We are sad to report the tragic death of one of our future Mustangs, Emma Lewis, who died this weekend.  We are grieving the loss of this fine student.  On behalf of the administrative team, I would like to offer heartfelt condolences to the family of Emma Lewis, especially Avery Lewis, her older sister and a current Mustang, and to offer our school’s assistance to help our students cope with this loss.

If your child experiences grief reactions and feelings as a result of this death; these reactions may include sadness, anxiety, and an inability to focus on normal routines.  Your child may need additional attention, reassurance and support at this time. Our Crisis Team members are available to support students in need by accessing through email mhl@pasco.k12.fl.us. Please include your name, your child’s name, and a phone number and one of our crisis team members will connect and support your child. Please let us know if you believe your student needs additional support; both school and community resources are available to assist.

Below is information that can be found on our website to support students and our community with this loss. You can be assured that we will do everything we can to help our school community deal with this tragic loss.
