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.
