Spelling Bee We had hoped that we would be able to provide the spelling bee recording. However, due to technical difficulties we are unable to provide the recorded link. We are very sorry. We want to congratulate our Winner: Fletcher Nichols and our Alternate: Carley Trinidad
Unfortunately we will be unable to provide a livestream link for our Spelling Bee, on Thursday the 28th. This is for the security and safety of our students and staff. However, we will record the event and post it on our website and FB, after the event is over. We wish all of our spellers the best!
Given the Winter Weather Advisory, Jay Schools will be on a 2 hour delay for Tuesday, January 26, 2021. This will give everyone time to prepare and we will see what comes by the morning.
