COVID-19 Updates

On April 9th, Missouri Governor Mike Parson announced that all schools in the State of Missouri will close through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year in order to protect the health and safety of students and staff members. For JC Schools, this means we will continue providing instruction via our current delivery methods for the remainder of our school year, which is scheduled to end on Thursday, May 28th.

This is incredibly tough news to hear, as we were all hopeful we would have an opportunity to return to school before the end of the year. We recognize that the current situation presents many challenges for educators, students, parents, and families. No matter how difficult and unprecedented these current circumstances are, we want you to know that we are here for you. We are committed to our students, and we will remain committed to helping them be successful through the rest of this closure. 

In the coming days, JC Schools will continue to assess our methods for reaching and teaching our students outside of the classroom. Staff members will continue collecting feedback from students and families on a regular basis to ensure we are adapting to meet your needs. 

Hang in there families - we will get through this together. We miss our students dearly, and we look forward to the day we can welcome them back into our schools!

We will use this page to provide resources and updates for staff and families.
