In an effort to provide open communication with parents, guardians and the community, we would like to share with you our current plans for our re-entry to school for the upcoming school year.
At this time, our current plan is to begin school in a traditional manner with Opening Day for students set for Thursday, August 6, 2020. We hope to follow a traditional model/schedule, but are preparing alternative plans in the event that we receive recommendations and guidance from the Kentucky Department of Education and/or our local Health Department to deviate from our traditional planned schedule.
Our school system participates in weekly webinars and video conferences with the Kentucky Department of Education in order to stay informed of the latest updates and guidance. We will communicate any recommended changes in the quickest manner possible so that you may plan for the upcoming school year.
Again, our current plan is to have a traditional approach and opening to the upcoming school year. We will be in close communication with the Jackson County Health Department, as we have been throughout this process. Always a priority among priorities for Jackson County Public Schools is the safety and well-being of our students and staff.
