With reports of a pending Ice and Snow storm February 3rd and 4th, 2022, Jefferson County Public Schools decides to move to Non Traditional Instruction on February 3rd, 2022.
From their website:
Dear JCPS Family,
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we’ve continued to navigate through staffing shortages caused by COVID-19 quarantines. We know our day-to-day decision making on whether to keep school buildings open hasn’t been easy on your family’s schedule. We are, however, thankful that the number of teachers and other staff in quarantine has continued to decrease allowing us to continue in-person learning.
Unfortunately, Mother Nature can also upend our school schedule from time to time. That’s what’s happening this week. Because of the ice and snow storm expected to hit our area Thursday and Friday, we have revised our school schedule for the remainder of this week:
Thursday, February 3: School buildings will be closed and all students and school staff will participate in Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI).
Friday, February 4: We anticipate that school buildings will be closed and we will make a decision Thursday on whether to:
have another NTI/Weather day, or
have a Traditional Snow day which may be necessary due to widespread power outages, or
return to in-person classes, on the off-chance that the weather is not as bad as anticipated.
a decision about extra curricular activities will be communicated with the decision about school.
Saturday, February 5: We anticipate all athletic and other extracurricular events will be canceled though, again, that decision will be based on the severity of the storm.
Students should bring their Chromebooks or other devices home with them today (Wednesday), in preparation for participating in NTI on Thursday and possibly Friday. If your child is not in school today and you need to pick up a device for them, please contact your child’s school.
We will keep you informed of all announcements through email, texts and social media.
Thank you for helping us, and your child, deal with the challenges of this school year.
Sincerely, Jefferson County Public Schools
