    Summer School - 2022



    MASKING: Masking will remain optional. If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID, or has symptoms, they must be quarantined for days 0-5. They may return on day 6 if symptoms are resolved, and must wear a mask at all times on days 6-10.


    HAND SANITIZING: Students will be required to sanitize their hands before entering each class room or activity. All students must wash their hands before lunch.


    AIR CIRCULATION: Whenever possible, doors and windows must be left open to increase air circulation within the building. Any opportunity to have an activity outdoors should be taken.


    SOCIAL DISTANCING: Students should remain 3-6 feet apart when possible, especially when they are indoors.


    COHORTING/GROUPING: Try to keep students in documented cohorts when inside the building. This will help with identifying students who might be considered a close contact. Currently close contacts will not have to quarantine, but they will have to self-monitor for symptoms.


    COVID TESTING: Students who come to school sick will be isolated in a designated area until their parents can pick them up. Students will be tested for COVID 19 with parent permission.



    ***As always, please keep your student(s) home if they are not feeling well

  • Dear Jefferson Community,

    Due to staffing shortages, we have made the difficult decision to close three of our Summer Food site locations effective July 11th.

    We will be keeping the ELEMENTARY and MIDDLE school sites open and hope that you will join us at either of these locations.

    Jefferson Elementary is located at 615 N 2nd St, and will be open from 10:45 to 11:15.
    Jefferson Middle is located at 2180 Talbot Rd and will be open from 11:30 to 12:00.

    We understand that this may pose an inconvenience to some of our families and we sincerely apologize.

    Thank you for your understanding,

    Lisa Buskirk

  • Dear Parents or Guardians,

    Summer meals for kids and teens are available all summer long at sites across our community! Stopping by a summer meal site with your family not only saves you time and money spent grocery shopping and meal prepping; it also helps support our community.

    Summer Meals Program Details:

    Meals are free for children and teens ages 18 and under.

    No application or registration required!

    The summer meals program is a federal program. Due to changes at the federal level, we are no longer able to offer LUNCH - GRAB & GO/DELIVERY/PARENT PICK-UP/MULTI-DAY MEALS. We are dedicated to still serving children and the community, and we plan to serve meals at the locations and times listed on the Summer Food Program flier. Meals must be consumed on-site, however, children can take one fruit, vegetable, or grain item to eat later offsite.

    Meals provided are always healthy, tasty and follow USDA’s nutrition guidelines.

    To find meal sites near you, visit or text ‘FOOD’ or ‘COMIDA’ to 304-304. You can also visit the JSD website for more information.

    Have a safe and healthy summer!
