From the Principal

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Thanksgiving weekend. I am very grateful for the break in the school calendar, yet I know these last few weeks before the Christmas break will be chalked full of activities, performances, sports, and of course, finals.  We will be on a finals schedule December 14, 15, and 16, with dismissals at 1:00 on the 14 and 15 and 11:30 on the 16.  We have lunch built into the schedule for Wednesday and Thursday, and an early snack period on Friday. Final exams, projects, etc. will not be given early. Christmas break begins the following Monday, December 19 and we return on Tuesday, January 3, 2023. 

Hopefully all of you read the Inclement Weather Reminders sent via email from the principals on Monday, November 27.  In the event of inclement weather, we will notify parents via email, new stations, and social media. In the majority of the circumstances, we will follow the local district (Canyons), and we recognize that parents travel from many different areas of the valley to SJBMS.  At any time you feel the roads are not safe for travel, please keep your student at home. 

We have had few cases of covid, RSV, and flu hitting the middle school. Please remember to keep your child home if they are displaying covid or flu symptoms – fever, headache, stomach issues, runny nose, cough, or sore throat. If your child does test positive for covid, please notify Mrs. Frakes at

I am wishing all of you a joyous and relaxing Advent Season

Go Eagles!!

Faithfully yours, 

Mr. Patrick Reeder
