Bee Safe! Bee Kind! Bee Drug Free! Celebrate Red Ribbon week by wearing red on Wednesday, Oct 27!
Dismissal on the early release Friday's will be at 12:40 (3 hours earlier than the normal 3:40 time). Many thanks to our community for the overwhelming support and understanding as we navigate these times.
Staffing shortages are impacting school systems across the country. For Jefferson County Schools (JCS), the shortages have significantly affected our staff time to complete critical behind-the-scenes work that goes into sustaining excellence in teaching and learning. Beginning October 15th, Jefferson County Schools will dismiss students 1/2 day every Friday. Staff will spend 3 hours completing all non-student supervision work (planning, SAT/IEP meetings, creating instructional materials, deep cleaning, etc). A full explanation of the factors leading to this change and expectations for staff in using this time can be found in the “Sustaining Excellence Plan” on the JCS website https://5il.co/101uz
We've got some important dates for families to remember this school year! Make sure to download the JCS 21-22 at a Glance Calendar and keep up with what's happening in your schools! https://core-docs.s3.amazonaws.com/documents/asset/uploaded_file/1571584/JCS_21-22_at_a_Glance.pdf
