As you can imagine, Jesuit’s food service offerings and the way meals will be served are among the items that will be changing to comply with COVID-related health and safety guidelines when students return to school. The staff of Jesuit’s food-service provider, Epicurean Group, has been diligently training; the enhanced safety protocols will be in place when students are able to attend school in person. Jesuit will be enforcing a strict social distancing policy, in- and out-of-doors, including lines for meal pick up.
In light of how difficult it is for students to find available test sites in California for the SAT and ACT, Jesuit is pleased to offer the opportunity for testing on our campus exclusively for our JHS students.

Rather than shopping around online at multiple merchant sites one by one, this link allows you to obtain the same results with just a few simple clicks.

How do I get started?
The PowerSchool Parent Access System is intended to provide parents, students and teachers with a tool to communicate student performance. It is a Web-based application that may be accessed from any place the parent/guardian can access the Internet. The application is a secure link that encrypts the data to and from the end user. In addition, a username and password are provided to allow access for only authorized users to the appropriate student record.
Jesuit sends official final transcripts to universities based on the information reported in the 2020 College Questionnaire and Transcript Request survey. Seniors can locate this in the Naviance Student account at https://student.naviance.com/jhssac. Your password may need to be reset; if you have any trouble logging in, contact Ms. Kakar.

All students and student-athletes are invited to sign up for an opportunity to meet one-on-one through Zoom with Athletic Director Hank Weinberger to get insight into who they are as athletes. Students will get insight into what kind of athlete they are and learn how to translate that into success on the field, court and in the pool. To start this process, students just need to fill out a very brief form to indicate interest in this customized athletic assessment. After completing the two-minute survey, stude

We invite students to continue writing letters to isolated individuals, as outlined at the link below. If you’ve not yet done so, please consider it!
We are now building off of this opportunity and are looking for students to help with the following, in order to make a video recording of students to send to guests at assisted living facilities. We are looking for students who are:
Given the current need for social distancing, many people are experiencing isolation in new, deeper ways. For people who were already isolated, this social distancing can be especially painful.
To respond to this reality, we will be inviting our students to engage in an optional service opportunity by writing a letter to a client or resident (or multiple clients or residents) at one of several non-profit agencies and programs.
During this time while we are apart, Grant Houle ’20, the religious coordinator, and Jonathan Fong ’20, the diocesan pastoral council student representative will be sharing a video daily prayer and examen beginning Monday, March 30, 2020.
In response to the current school closure, the Jesuit Sports Performance Team is committed to providing guidance and support not only to our students-athletes, but the entire school community while campus is closed. Physical and mental well-being is not something to be taken for granted, therefore we will continue to reference the current research and employ standard practices to provide the very best health advice. All current research supports this balanced, minimalistic protocol for promoting comprehensive wellness and basic human performance.
These guidelines suggest best practices regarding the publication of commentary on social media by students.

What is a Collaboration Period?
Most Wednesdays begin with a “Collaboration Period” which run from 8:15-9:30 a.m. Some Collaboration Periods are used for faculty and some are used for students.
Collaboration Periods for faculty include things like Professional Learning Community meetings and additional department meeting time (for things like year-level meetings or interdepartmental collaboration).
Help students establish meaningful post-secondary goals and connect those goals with their coursework and college planning activities.
As you head into finals week next week remember that while it is important to strive for your best on your exams, your health and well-being is even more important. As the posters around campus highlight from the Impact Distracted Driving campaign: Instincts Matter. Instincts matter when you are driving, and instincts matter in our everyday experiences with ourselves and others. Pause, assess, and if necessary Speak Up.
Here are some common letters of recommendation questions that we get from students during the college application cycle. This is the same information that we communicated to students and parents in our college information nights, college advising meetings, and during collaboration periods. We thought it may be useful to have this information in a cohesive and easily accessible document for your reference.
