Jackson County School and district leaders continue to closely monitor all available data points so we can make informed decisions and keep our students, staff, families, and community as safe as possible. Please remember that each chart represents a different data set. The District Totals chart reflects a “snapshot” of the number of active positive cases and active quarantines on the last day of the reporting period. The School Totals Chart reflects the impact of quarantines on a school population and includes students and staff who were in self-isolation or quarantine for any portion of the reporting period. Our reporting period runs from Thursday of the previous week to Wednesday of the current week. Please find this week’s data on the following page.

As a recap, when there is a positive case diagnosed by a physician or by a test, the following occur in this order:

          • Phone calls are made to all individuals who meet the Department of Public Health’s Contact Tracing Guidelines.
          • An email is sent to the classroom/bus/extracurricular activity of the COVID-19 diagnosed individual.
          • An email is sent to the school of the COVID-19 diagnosed individual.


Please help us keep our students in school by:

          • Wearing a cloth face covering
          • Staying home when sick
          • Keeping physical distance
          • Washing and Sanitizing hands regularly

JCSS encourages our school community to continue to make smart, informed decisions about their health and safety. We are grateful our teachers and administrators have had access to a vaccine, and we are thankful our school data continues to show improvement across our school system. We also acknowledge the evolving recommendations provided by the CDC. Watching your distance, washing your hands, and wearing your masks are encouraged as we look forward to finishing the school year strong.

Thank you for joining JCSS in these efforts. We are stronger together.
