Good Afternoon Jackson County Families,
The Jackson County community has reached a dangerously high COVID 19 spread rate with a record number of positive cases in the past two weeks. With high numbers of staff absences, we are unable to provide substitutes and transportation support and risk the overall safety of our students and staff. Therefore, we will transition to remote learning for ALL students beginning Wednesday, December 9th until Winter Break.
Students should plan to be engaged in learning from home starting on Wednesday and continue until Thursday, December 17th. Should you choose to begin remote learning on Tuesday, December 8th, please work with your child’s school to obtain needed learning materials. School nutrition services will still be available (5-day meal pickup planned between 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM at each school on Wednesday, December 9, and Wednesday, December 16) and you may obtain details from your child’s school.
We look forward to returning as soon as possible, however, we will continue to monitor Jackson County data. We encourage you to have a plan should we need to extend remote learning into early January. Thanks to your partnership, we are exceptionally grateful that we were able to provide in-person learning for the vast majority of the first semester. We wish you and your families a safe holiday.
