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

Additionally, we are excited to continue multi-day meal service for digital learning students and students who are not attending school. Meal pickup will be once a week on Wednesday from 9 AM – 10 AM at all schools with all meals being at no cost. Please contact the cafeteria manager to have your students added to the meal pick up list. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you to make wholesome meals available to our students all year long.

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