Special note about events and winter weather

The event information in the Jaguar News is accurate, to the best of our knowledge, as of Thursday evening. However, changing weather and traffic conditions could lead to last-minute changes or cancellations of scheduled events. If you have any questions, or there is a conflict between the information in the Jaguar News and another source, please verify event information independently:

Mohan ski bus: Mohan is monitoring the situation and will make a decision about whether to cancel the ski bus early Friday morning. Look for an email from the coordinator (skijaneaddams@gmail.com) on Friday morning with updated information. The ski bus website also suggests checking the Mohan website or calling (425-868-3820) for the latest operation updates. NOTE: The Mohan ski bus is not a school-sponsored event, so school staff will not have any information about updates or cancelations.

Basketball practice and games: The boys and girls JV basketball practices this afternoon and all of the basketball games scheduled for tomorrow, February 9, have been canceled.

JAMS PTSA meeting: The JAMS PTSA board meeting scheduled for Monday February 11 will be canceled if school is closed on Monday due to weather conditions. Check jamsptsa.org for updates.

JAMS open house and tour: The daytime open house and tour scheduled for Tuesday February 12 have been canceled.

School: Winter weather may cause changes to the school schedule. Check the SPS website (https://seattleschools.org/) and JAMS website (https://addamsms.seattleschools.org/), local TV and radio stations, Facebook or Twitter for up-to-date information. Would you rather get a text or email than a phone call, if school is closed or delayed? You can manage your SPS communication preferences (instructions here).

High school information nights: There are several information nights for high schools next week. Be sure to check the school’s website (listed below in the “High School Information” section) on the day of the event to determine if the event is canceled.

Special election: If you haven’t already done so, please try to drop your levy ballots in the mail/local drop box before the impending storm this weekend to make sure your voice is heard and your vote is counted!
Stay safe and warm, Jaguars!
