November 17, 2020 Dear JCSD Families: With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us and the current ranking of being #1 in the state for our COVID positivity rate, we have made the unfortunate decision to remain remote until December 1, 2020. We currently have twenty-five staff members in quarantine or isolation and over one hundred and fifty students in quarantine. We will continue monitoring county case numbers as well as positive cases within our schools. We were able to safely provide nine weeks of onsite instruction and we are frustrated we can not remain open for onsite instruction. We will continue to provide updates and information regarding our return to school. Please check your building’s social media pages for additional information regarding picture retakes and other activities that will need to be rescheduled. REMINDER: If there is someone in your household that is being evaluated and tested for COVID-19 infection, please notify the school nurse immediately. If you need books and materials from your school, please pick them up during the hours of 8 to 4, today through Friday, November 20th. Contact your building principals if you have questions.

November 10, 2020 Dear JCSD Families: Unfortunately we are again making an announcement regarding COVID positive cases within the JCSD. As of this afternoon, JCSD has added a positive student case at JES, a positive student case at JHS and a positive staff case at EJHS. With these cases we have almost twenty staff members in quarantine, as well as, over one hundred students. We have attempted to remain open for onsite instruction for our students but we have reached the point where it is not possible. We regretfully are announcing that for the week of November 16, 2020 we will be full remote for all students, Monday - Friday. REMINDER: If there is someone in your household that is being evaluated and tested for COVID-19 infection, please notify the school nurse and keep all students in the household at home while awaiting test results.

From Brian Kritzer with TIU #11, Local Task Force: Please share (far and wide) the link below which is to a parent/guardian LTF survey. The purpose of the survey is to gather information from parents/guardians and to possibly recruit new members. The survey is intended to be taken by parents/guardians that have a child with a disability but others (teachers/administrators/agencies) are welcome to participate. The survey is designed to be taken once to prevent multiple submissions from the same device. The results of the survey will be compiled and shared at the next LFT meeting which is scheduled for Wednesday, January 27th 2021 via Zoom (https://paiu.zoom.us/j/93091398406) from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. Thank you in advance for sharing this survey and supporting the LTF as it works towards gathering parent/guardian input and increasing its membership. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Brian Kritzer Survey Link: https://s.surveyplanet.com/WJJgOW0YH

JCSD Families: We are making the announcement early for the week of November 9. Due to an increase in COVID positive cases in surrounding communities we will be fully remote for Thursday, November 12 and Friday, November 13. This will allow us to have ten days to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We hope this will also prevent our students and staff from possible quarantine and full remote instruction. The return to our scheduled 4-1 plan will be confirmed in an announcement November 12, 2020.
