    Important COVID-19 Announcement (4/14/20, 4:30 PM)

    On Tuesday, April 14, 2020, Governor Tate Reeves made the announcement, “School buildings in Mississippi will remain closed for the rest of the semester.  That does not mean school is cancelled.”

    In response to this announcement, Jackson County School District will continue the current academic instructional plan put in place at the onset of the COVID-19 school closure.  Teachers will continue to provide academic resources and instruction, using both district-selected online content as well as paper/pencil packets taken from JCSD textbooks and instructional materials. 

    Meals will continue to be made available using the current drive-thru schedule until otherwise announced. The JCSD Child Nutrition Department will announce plans for meal distribution using bus routes as soon as possible. 

    Parents with questions concerning ongoing distance learning are encouraged to contact their child’s teacher.  Those with questions regarding meal distribution should contact the JCSD Child Nutrition Department at (228) 826-2133.  For more detailed information, please refer to the Jackson County School District COVID-19 Updates page located on the JCSD website (www.jcsd.ms).

    Any updates for JCSD will be posted on our district website.
    Please check there to be updated on any news.
