Update on Reopening Plans: August 10, 2020

JP Schools Families,

With the start of the school year being pushed back to August 26 for students in grades 1-12, we want to fill you in on some additional details coming out of the announcement earlier today:

  • PK and K Student Start Date: PK and K students will start on August 27 and 28 (instead of August 17 and 18).
  • Grab and Go Meals:  Due to the date change of the start of school, meals will not be distributed for Virtual Jefferson students on Tuesday, August 11. Meal distribution for students enrolled in Virtual Jefferson will begin on Tuesday, August 25. 
  • Student Learning: We are working to provide some additional instructional tips and resources for students and families for the next two weeks. 
  • Updated Academic Calendar: We will have an updated academic calendar to share publicly later this week. The calendar will be balanced to maximize instructional minutes and honor the 183 teacher contract days. 

Thank you,

Jefferson Parish Schools
