Updated District Communication: April 7, 2020

Dear Families, 

The Jackson-Milton School District appreciates your patience and understanding as we navigate together through this unprecedented time. Governor DeWine has extended the state wide closure of public schools until May 1, 2020. Please know this could be extended further, but if it is not extended, school will resume Monday, May 4, 2020. We know families have a lot of questions, and we want to address these questions to the best of our ability, but please know plans and dates are subject to change. As a reminder, please contact teachers directly through email with any questions regarding class assignments. Teachers are checking their emails. It is also important that students check their school email and login to online classes. 

 

What about prom?

Right now the plan is to postpone prom,  however at this time there is no set date. 

What is going on with graduation?

Administration is looking at ways to hold graduation for the Class of 2020,  but we are currently planning on the original date of Friday, June 5, 2020, but know it’s subject to change.

Is the district doing meal distribution for students?

The district will continue with meal distribution for students, with Tuesday as the set day. Distribution will include a week’s worth of food.  Delivery is for students who live in the district. For open enrollment families, meals can be picked up at your school building. If your child receives free or reduced meals, and you want to opt out please email Superintendent Baker.

***There will be no food distribution during spring break. 

    Food distribution will resume April 21***

Will there still be a yearbook?

Jackson-Milton MS/HS

There will be a yearbook, parents can still order yearbooks online. Due to the unique circumstances, ordering of both the middle school and high school books has been extended. The middle school book will most likely be delivered to students in the fall, like the high school books have always been.  Senior pictures can still be submitted digitally to Mrs. Morelli for the next few weeks if needed, and will be included in the yearbook. The only changes might come with the content of the books as sports/events from the spring have been postponed or canceled at this time. We have also not been able to take the usual group photos for clubs/groups at this time due to the school closure, but all available school portraits have been included and all sports have been included through winter in each book.  

JMES will also have a yearbook. Pictures will be accepted until April 24, 2020. Picture submissions can be emailed to jmes.yearbook@jmlocal.com. We will be in communication with how to order.

What about Kindergarten Registration?

Kindergarten Registration cannot happen during the state mandated closure. 

Once a date is set, we will let you know. If you have a child  attending Kindergarten this fall please download the school registration form and mail it to the school.

What’s going on with scheduling for the 2020-2021 school year at the MS/HS?

Scheduling will start May 4. Each student will receive a schedule to complete electives based upon the academic classes they are scheduled in, and what classes are available during their open periods.

Can I start the process of Open Enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year?
