Homecoming/Reunion & Families Weekend Fall 2020

Updated as of September 11, 2020

The Academies Senior Administration working in conjunction with the SJNA Parents Club and the SJNA Infirmary has updated the Fall Families Weekend schedule to maximize families’ time with their cadet/student while upholding the tradition of events of years past.

We have constructed the schedule to adhere to COVID-19 protocols in place to keep our cadets and students safe, especially in light of many schools in the area having to revert to hybrid or virtual learning due to confirmed cases in their schools. For SJNA to remain open for face-to-face instruction, we must eliminate any events that could put our campus at risk. We ask for your cooperation and understanding in adhering to the parameters of each event. Please also consider when making your plans off-campus to minimize your and your child’s risk of exposure.

Teacher Conference Schedule

  • Friday, October 2, 8 am – 3:30 pm, via virtual meeting only
  • Saturday, October 3, 9 am – 11 am, via virtual meeting only

There are no academic classes on Friday, October 2, or Monday, October 5.

An email to sign up for conference times with SignUpGenius will be emailed by the academic office the week before conferences. Academic Progress reports will be sent to parents on Tuesday, September 29.
