JCSD Families, On Monday afternoon, the district received guidance from the PA Department of Health and the PA Department of Education requiring students and staff to wear masks during the school day. This new guidance requires the wearing of masks even when six feet of social distancing can be achieved and will remain in effect until further notice. There will only be limited opportunities for students to remove their masks during the day including lunch and scheduled face coving breaks lasting no more than ten minutes per break. This latest adjustment is in response to information released from the American Academy of Pediatrics. The district will be evaluating the guidance and more information will be discussed at the upcoming board meeting. The Juniata County School Board of Directors voted last night to adjust the calendar for the upcoming school year. The first day for students was moved from August 26th to September 8th. The adjusted calendar will be available on the district website. We will continue to inform you as information becomes available. We would like to thank each of you for your patience as our community continues to navigate this unprecedented situation. Educationally Yours, Dr. Gary Dawson Superintendent
Students who have chosen Option 2 (HRE), will pick up materials on September 2, 2020 between the hours of 8 and 4, or contact the school to set up an appointment. Please social distance, wear a mask, and limit the amount of family members entering the building to the student and one family member. Secondary students will follow their schedule and visit each classroom to receive materials. Elementary students will go to their homeroom to receive materials. Contact your building administrators with questions.
