Staying ~ Well in SJASD!

May 14, 2020

Staying Well.jpgThe St. James-Assiniboia School Division (SJASD) is pleased to offer a confidential support line for Staying-Well to assist our school communities during the COVID-19 pandemic and the suspension of in-school classroom learning.  This support line is available to parents, caregivers, staff and of course, our students.

  • Connecting to the appropriate school support personnel
