Board Decision on Mask

At the Jackson County Board of Education Special Board Meeting held on Thursday, September 16, 2021, the Jackson County Board of Education made a decision concerning face coverings in Jackson County Public School facilities.  The determination to wear a face covering by students and staff will be based on the COVID-19 Mode of Instruction Metrics for K-12 Education.  Based on the Incident Rate Map, a determination will be made each Thursday for the status of the upcoming week.  Jackson County Public Schools will require everyone ages 2 and older, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a face covering while inside a Jackson County Public School building when our community transmission rate is in the RED or ORANGE zone.  If our community transmission rate is in the YELLOW or GREEN zone, regardless of vaccination status, Jackson County Public Schools would recommend that face coverings would be worn by students and staff, but are not required.  Notification will be provided each Thursday concerning the status for the upcoming week.
