December 23, 2020 Dear JCSD Families: At this time the JCSD is committed to reopening our schools on January 4, 2021 with the 4-1 plan. We feel that our students need to be back in school as soon as safely possible. Please keep in mind that depending on the most recent county infection data and number of staff quarantined or infected, we may need to alter the timing or the way we reopen our schools. Any changes will be communicated through our school calling system and posted on the district website. Moving forward, the district will try to react to active COVID cases, or staff shortages at the building level and avoid shutting down all school buildings, if possible. The criteria we will consider for these decisions can be found on the PDE website here: https://www.education.pa.gov/Schools/safeschools/emergencyplanning/COVID-19/SchoolReopeningGuidance/ReopeningPreKto12/PublicHealthGuidance/Pages/SchoolClosureRecommentations.aspx If in the event a school has to close, other models such as 2-2-1, may be implemented in order to reopen. This will be announced by the district administration. Also, if your child has tested positive for COVID-19, is awaiting test results, or has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please keep your child home and contact your school nurse who will help determine quarantine dates. JCSD Administration
