Jackson-Milton Schools welcomed students back into the building for the 2020-2021 school year September 9, 2020. Teachers and staff are so excited to see students in their classrooms, and connect with remote learners. Several additional health and safety precautions are in place for this school year.     

Daily Temperature Check

Thermal imaging technology will take the temperature of everyone who enters a school building. An individual’s temperature appears on the screen with a “green light” indicating he or she is good to go. The device also recognizes if someone isn’t wearing a mask. If a person does have a temperature of 100.4 or above, a red warning will appear with the message “Stop, do not enter.”  When a red warning occurs, an individual will go directly to a designated room to see the nurse. 

Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizer is  readily available in the hallways for students and staff. All areas will be frequently cleaned and sanitized, especially high-touch areas.

Cleaning Solution

Each classroom has a spray bottle of cleaning solution that can be used to clean an area after it’s used. 

Face Masks

As per the Ohio Governor’s mandate, students in grades K-12 must wear a mask. As a result, students must wear a mask while on the bus and at school. Staff members will be required to wear a face mask  while performing teaching duties. If your child has a unique circumstance which prevents the wearing of a face mask, please discuss your unique situation with your building principal.

Plexiglass and Dividers

Plexiglass is in office areas and lunch lines. Classrooms with tables have desk dividers. Social distancing signage is also on hallway floors.
