Additional School Safety Measures


Always a priority among priorities for Jackson County Public Schools is the safety and well-being of our students and staff.  With the recent events that have happened in our state and our nation, and to ensure accurate communication, we would like to inform our parents/guardians, community and county of some of the additional safety measures that we do to ensure the safety and well-being of our students and staff. 


KSP Adopt A School Program

The Jackson County Public School District is pleased to announce that we are now involved with the Kentucky State Police Adopt-a-School Program.   KSP has designed this program to prevent and intervene in an effort to reduce threats of violence toward our schools.    When specifics of the program are implemented, there will be a noticeable increase of law enforcement presence both within school buildings and on school campuses as available KSP manpower and schedules allow.    Please be aware that the presence of a law enforcement official on school property does not necessarily mean that there is a specific threat to our schools, staff, or students.     We look forward to this partnership as our school community works together to create safer schools and to improve the student learning environment.   If you have specific questions regarding the KSP Adopt-A-School Program, please contact Stephen Gabbard at the Jackson County Central Administration Office Building.    stephen.gabbard@jackson.kyschools.us

School Safety Letter from Mr. Smith

School Safety Letter


For clarification and to maintain open communication with parents and the community, JCPS would like to make everyone aware that Jackson County Middle School is NOT on lock down. Dr. Kerby was made aware of a rumor circulating on social media that the school was on lock down due to a weapon threat on campus. Again, this is just a rumor. JCMS is NOT on lock down and there are no threats against the school.

The district understands that everyone is very concerned about school safety due to recent events in Marshall County and Florida. Please know that the district has many safety measures in place to protect all staff and students.

Early Dismissal

We will begin dismissing today at 2:00 pm due to the possibility of inclement weather.

Hepatitis A Vaccine

​Since the Hepatitis A Vaccine will become mandatory for all children, Family Health Care and the School Nurses Group will be administering those in the school clinics. If you would like for your child to get the Hepatitis A Vaccine at school, please call your child's school and speak to the school nurse.  If the school nurse does not administer the vaccine, you will need to provide the school with the child's shot record documenting the Hepatitis A vaccine.  If you have any questions, please all your school nurse Monday through Friday from 8 A.M. until 3 P.M.

NTID Lessons

All students should have received a green folder that contains lessons for NTI Day 1 & 2. If your child is planning to do the hard copy packets, they should have everything they need in the folder for Days 1 and 2. The first page of each lesson is the directions sheet. Everything your child needs to know about completing the assignment can be found on this sheet.

If your child is planning to do the lessons online, they still received a folder containing the directions sheet for each day. The directions sheet details what online platform they will be using and what they need to access when they get logged on.

These folders should remain at home so they will be available when the district calls a NTI Day.

If your child did not receive a green folder with lessons for NTI Day 1 and 2, please contact the school.

Public Forum

The Jackson County Board of Education will be holding a public forum to discuss a plan to improve school nutrition and physical activity in the district.  The meeting will begin at 4:00 pm Thursday, January 25, 2017, at Jackson County Board of Education, located at 3331 Hwy 421S in McKee.  Everyone is invited to attend.
