As Jefferson County Schools prepares to welcome back thousands of children into our halls, we want to thank every member of our community for their hard work, dedication, and support of our students. Together we successfully navigated a year of significant challenge, and we are confident that we will do so again. A key component of that success was our diligence in creating a comprehensive safety plan for our staff and students. Once again, we have worked collaboratively with the WV Department of Education (WVDE), the WV Department of Health and Human Services (WVDHHR), and the Jefferson County Health Department (JCHD) to develop the JCS Pandemic Safe Schools Operations Plan - August 2021. As conditions have fluctuated, we have modified our plan and will continue to do so as we ensure the safety of our students and staff. You may review the complete plan and learn more about the mitigation strategies in place for the start of the school year on our website. https://www.jcswv.org/page/jcs-pandemic-safe-schools-operations-plan
A huge thank you to the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce for sponsoring our new teacher's lunch! Welcome new teachers!
