  • End of the Year Reminders

    Posted by Megan Ptak on 5/20/2020

    Patriot Families:

    Good morning.  I can’t believe tomorrow is the last day of remote learning for the school year.  The end of the year definitely is not how all of us expected it to be, but I have to say that the positivity from students, staff, and parents I have received has been much appreciated! 

    I wanted to send a few reminders about the next few days as we end the school year.  Please remember that students will be attending every class tomorrow via remote learning.  The schedule was sent in a previous Talk 203, but can also be found on our web page.  Each grade level team may have sent out communication to students as well.

    Also, please remember that we will still be celebrating each grade level with pre-recorded award ceremonies that will be sent out via Talk 203 on Friday morning.  At this time, we will also be sending out the 8th grade Moving-On ceremony which is also pre-recorded.  This will allow all students and families to watch the ceremonies at the most convenient time for them. 

    As a staff, we hope that these final days of remote learning are beneficial and a happy closure to your Patriots’ school year.  The award ceremonies and 8th grade Moving-On ceremony come from our hearts and the joy it was to have each of these students as a part of the Patriot family!  Please take care, stay safe, and enjoy the summer!


    Megan Ptak, JJHS Principal


    Familias Patriot:

    Buenos días.  Parece imposible que mañana sea el último día de aprendizaje remoto de este año escolar.  ¡El final de curso definitivamente no es como todos esperábamos que fuera, pero debo admitir que la positividad que he recibido de los estudiantes, el personal escolar y los padres ha sido realmente apreciada!

    Quería enviar algunos recordatorios sobre los próximos días en los que terminamos el año escolar.  Recuerden que mañana los estudiantes asistirán a todas las clases del aprendizaje remoto.  El horario se envió en un boletín informativo Talk 203 anterior, pero también se puede encontrar en nuestra página web.  Cada equipo de nivel de grado también puede que enviaran comunicaciones a los estudiantes.

    Además, recuerde que seguiremos celebrando cada grado con ceremonias de entrega de premios pregrabadas que se enviarán a través de Talk 203 el viernes por la mañana.  En este momento, también enviaremos la ceremonia de graduación Moving-On de 8º grado que también está pregrabada.  Esto les permitirá a todos los estudiantes y familias ver las ceremonias en el momento que sea más conveniente para ellos. 

    Como personal escolar, esperamos que estos últimos días de aprendizaje remoto sean beneficiosos y que tengan un feliz cierre del curso como Patriots.  ¡Las ceremonias de entrega de premios y la ceremonia de graduación Moving-On de 8º grado vienen de nuestros corazones y la alegría de tener a cada uno de estos estudiantes como parte de la familia Patriot!  ¡Por favor, cuídense, intenten mantenerse salvos y sanos, y disfrutar del verano!

    Good afternoon.  As you know, our last student attendance day for Remote Learning is May 21, 2020.  We will not be following our normal A/B schedule on this day as we would like students and teachers to be able to have the chance to say goodbye and participate in all of their classes as a final farewell to the 2019-2020 school year.  The schedule below is what will be followed by all Jefferson Patriots on May 21, 2020.  Teachers will inform students of what they will be doing during their scheduled period at a later date.  Also, please note that each grade level’s award presentations and the 8th grade ceremony will be sent via a Talk 203 the morning of May 22nd.  Have a fabulous last few weeks of Remote Learning!

  • Remote Learning Update

    Posted by Megan Ptak on 4/17/2020

    Patriot Families:

    Good evening.  As you may have heard, the Governor has announced that schools will remained closed for in person learning through the remainder of the school year.  As I completely understand this directive for the safety and well being of us all, it still saddens me.  I will miss seeing both the students and the staff on a daily basis.  Please know that we will still stay connected to you through remote learning.  In the meantime, I am sure there are questions about cleaning out lockers, recognizing our 8th graders moving on to the high school, and more.  Please know that we will answer all of these questions as we hear from the district on the protocols and procedures moving forward.  Please take care of your families and stay healthy.

  • Online Annual Update

    Posted by Eric Decker on 4/14/2020

    It’s time to plan for next year already! Naperville School District 203 will perform its Online Annual Update for the 2020-2021 school year for all returning students entering grades preschool or 1st -12th grade.

    Beginning today, April 13, 2020, all families will be required to update their student’s information through their Campus Parent Account. The Online Annual Update for returning families must be completed by May 11, 2020. We will not be able to assign your student to a teacher or schedule for the 2020-2021 school year until the Online Annual Update is completed.

    The following information will assist you in completing each of your student’s Annual Update for the 2020-2021 school year:

    To access the Online Annual Update, you will need your Campus Parent username and password. If you do not have a Campus Parent Account, contact Parent Support at

    If your Online Annual Update reflects a change of address, proof of residency at your new address must be provided. If there is a change in the family structure i.e. divorce, a Parenting/Custody Agreement must be provided. For these changes/updates to take effect, documents may be uploaded while completing your Online Update, or they may be brought into our Centralized Enrollment Office when the office re-opens. Updated information can be found on our website at If you have any questions regarding your Online Update application, please email Maureen Dvorak, School Services Manager, at

    If you know that your student(s) will not be returning in August, please let the school know as soon as possible.
