Test to Stay Program

Family Health Care Associates (FHCA) school nurses will be implementing the “Test to Stay” Program for Jackson County Public Schools.  Each of our schools has a FHCA school nurse who is trained to implement this program.   The Test-to-Stay Program will allow both students and staff who are identified as a close contact during COVID-19 contact tracing to stay in school, forego the requirement to quarantine and to participate in school activities.  Students and staff who are identified as close contacts from a school exposure, and who are asymptomatic, will not be required to quarantine from school if parents/guardians give permission for the student to be tested at school for COVID-19 for five consecutive days using a rapid test.  Any student who is identified as a close contact by contact tracing and participates in the Test-to-Stay program will need to be transported by the parents/guardians or self to school each morning during the five-consecutive day period.   Students and staff may remain at school each day as long as the daily test returns a negative result.  If a positive test occurs, the student will need to leave with the parent/guardian or be picked up from the school and quarantine according to guidelines.  A staff member who is positive  will need to leave the work setting and quarantine at home according to guidelines.  Tests will be administered at each school within our district by the school nurses.  This program is OPTIONAL and there is no cost to the participants.  Students will only be tested with parent/guardian permission.

Indoor/Outdoor Guidelines for Sports

🔴🔵Indoor/Outdoor Guidelines for Sports🔵🔴

We are excited for our student-athletes to have the opportunity to play sports this fall. During indoor sporting events masks will be required for coaches, spectators, and all table personnel. We would also ask that you social distance as much as possible.


Outdoor sporting events will not require masks.  We would ask that you social distance as much as possible.  There is an abundance of lawn chair seating available at our football field.  


One of the most important things you can do is if you have a fever, cough, or any COVID-19 symptom please stay at home.  This is also true if you've been exposed to someone who has COVID-19.


We will sell tickets at the gate and we ask that you follow these guidelines. Our students need the opportunity for as many normal experiences as possible. Thank you for supporting our students.


Mr. Harris
