1. Meeting for Parents of BIPOC Children at JICS

Created by JICS parents for JICS parents, this meeting is designed for conversation and advocacy for families at JICS with BIPOC children.
The focus of this meeting is to discuss how the JICS BIPOC parents can help the teachers to deliver messages regarding equality and hero, and to help with the school's cultural celebrations.
Save the date: Monday, December 5, 7-8:30 pm on Zoom
2. JICS Lab School is a nut-free space
We are noticing that some children are bringing leftover Halloween candy to school that contain peanuts; we have found Reese's Pieces, Wunderbar, Oh Henry, and Snickers wrappers in the school. We urge everyone to please check that the food items your children are bringing to school are 100% nut free. We have children in our school who have a life threatening anaphylactic allergy to tree and ground nuts and we all need to do everything we can to ensure that this is a safe place for them.
