COVID-19 Updates

Website Banner for COVID19  

The Jefferson City School District has announced a school closure from Wednesday, March 18th through Friday, May 1st in order to proactively mitigate the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Schools will reopen no earlier than Monday, May 4th. We will share information with staff and families as soon as decisions are made should we determine it is necessary to extend the closure beyond the determined date.

District leaders have been closely monitoring the rapidly-evolving COVID-19 pandemic situation. We recognize that our public schools serve an important function for many families in our community beyond just educational learning - they are also sources of comfort, routine, support, and
nutrition.

We are keenly aware that this extended closure will have a significant impact on our families, may present a hardship and childcare challenge for many, but we feel it is a necessary step to aid in the health and wellbeing of our community during this unprecedented situation.

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