Jackson Schools Will Be On ALL REMOTE Learning Friday, Feb. 19 Due to Anticipated Morning Icy Conditions

NOTICE - Thursday, Feb. 18@ 6 p.m.

Jackson School District Will Remain on 

Weather-Related ALL REMOTE LEARNING for Friday, Feb. 19

Dear JSD Parents and Staff,

Due to icy conditions expected for Friday morning, the Jackson School District will move to ALL REMOTE LEARNING for Friday, Feb. 19, 2021 to ensure the safety of our students and staff. Please remember that we are unable to call for a delayed opening, as our current Shortened Day schedules do not allow for that option.

This means all students will stay home and work remotely for Friday, Feb. 19. Students should log in to their Google Classrooms at the beginning of the school day for instructions about lessons and work for the day. 

This decision allows the school day to count towards the 180-day required learning days for students and means we would not need to extend the school year to Monday, June 21. NOTE: If you have trouble connecting remotely, please contact your teachers at your earliest convenience to let them know of any issues.

FOR VO-TECH STUDENTS:

  • There will be NO district transportation to any Vo-Tech program, including half-day programs, MATES, PAA, ALPS.
  • Students should log in remotely to their Vo-Tech classes and reach out to Vo-Tech teachers for instructions.

FOR STAFF: 

This will be a remote work day. Please consult your supervisor if you have any questions.

IMPORTANT FOR STUDENTS IN OUR SPECIAL EDUCATION OUT-OF-DISTRICT SCHOOLS:

Please know that when the Jackson School District is either closed due to weather OR on All Remote Learning due to weather (as we will be on Feb. 19), there is NO DISTRICT TRANSPORTATION to ANY OUT-OF-DISTRICT SCHOOL.

This applies to Jackson School District buses AND to any buses operated by MOESC.

Whether your child’s out-of-district school is open or operating virtually, this means that your child will be learning VIRTUALLY at home on these days. You will NOT be transported to or from your out-of-district school, even if that school has decided to stay open for in-person learning.

We apologize for any inconvenience this plan may cause, but the safety of our students and staff is our first priority. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please stay safe and warm!
