School Closure

From Jefferson County Board of Education:

Dear JEFCOED Family,

We have been in constant communication with local and state health officials.  Based on recent updates and after careful consideration, we have made the decision to close schools effective immediately.

Our tentative reopening day is Monday April 6th. 

This closure includes all JEFCOED facilities and cancellation of all school-related activities.

Students and staff should not report to a school site until further notice.  

We have prepared some resources for our students and parents.  We will communicate this information on Monday, March 16th. These resources include academic engagement information, child nutrition information for student meals while we are closed, and the preparation of our facilities for students and staff to return to campus.

Please follow the guidance of state and local health officials and focus on keeping your family safe.  We will notify stakeholders of official updates for our district via our website, mass communication messages and our official social media sites throughout the school closure situation.

Again, all Jefferson County Schools are closed effective immediately until Monday, April 6th.

Thank you,

Dr. Walter Gonsoulin
