Again, Jackson Public Schools has been hard at work planning for the safe return of our scholars. This document covers our plans for a Smart Restart in the spring semester of 2021. It includes the learning options, academic schedules, safety measures, and new routines we are utilizing to continue learning and engagement.
Although school will resume virtually as scheduled for scholars on January 5, 2021, those who opt to do so will return to in-person classes on or after January 19. The District has built in a self-quarantine period following the holiday break and potential exposure during holiday gatherings and festivities.
Our number one priority is ensuring your child is safe and has a comfortable physical environment. We are sharing this information with our JPS parents and families so you can determine which learning option will be the best fit for your scholar and family. This plan is subject to change. We will continue to refine this plan as circumstances change and in coordination with our health officials, elected leadership, families and community members. As we face these unprecedented times together, we appreciate your continued partnership to protect our scholars and team.
