A Message from...

  • Martin Dubois, Principal

    Hello, Cascades Elementary parents and students. I hope this letter finds you all doing well and excited for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. I and the staff at Cascades Elementary have all missed your children and can't wait for the year to begin. There are going to be some challenges that we will face this year but we are ready for anything that comes our way and please rest assured that we have a plan to make this year a great one!

Y5-2 will receive an iPad and grades 3-12 will receive a Chromebook. Instruction will be provided five days a week online.

This provides JPS with the flexibility to meet the individual needs of students, to step forward into a full-time face-to-face as well as a step backward into a full-time at-home instruction as directed by State and local officials. All JPS will be starting at the Phase 4 category which means that masks and social distancing will be part of everyone in the building's day. These precautions are to protect you, your children, and all staff. We want everyone to be safe. Please, when possible talk to your children about the reason for the precautions and explain what social distancing means as well as what it looks like. Don't hesitate to contact me if you need some help in understanding it so that you can give your child the facts. We will get through this because we are Viking Strong! I would also like to update you on some changes for Cascade Elementary 2020-21 school year. First, we no longer have Frost Elementary as a title. We are preparing for the new building next year so w
