STOP! TIPLINE....REPORT BULLYING "ONLINE"

JACKSON COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS ANNOUNCES STOP! TIPLINE …REPORT BULLYING “ONLINE”

STOP TIPLINESafety is our first priority. In an effort to use every able resource to STOP bullying and other risky behaviors in our schools, the Jackson County Public School District proudly announces the implementation of the “Safety Tipline Online Prevention” or STOP! Tipline beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.   The STOP! Tipline is designed for use as an "online" reporting/prevention tool which is provided free by the Kentucky Center for School Safety. If students, parents or community members know of an unsafe situation in school (bullying, weapons, drugs or alcohol, etc.), they can anonymously pass on that information to school personnel by using this basic email format.

Our hope is that, students who fear face-to-face reporting of bullying or other safety issues may be less reluctant to share this vital information when offered an “online” option.   By giving students the ability to report concerns over their tablets, computers or mobile phones, we can reach more students and address problems before they escalate.

NEW IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR KENTUCKY STUDENTS

 

As we begin preparing for the new 2018-2019 school year, it is important that parents are aware of a new immunization law that takes affect with the upcoming school year.  The new law addresses two different vaccinations.

*          First, all students in Preschool through 12th grade are required to have the Hepatitis A vaccine. The Hepatitis A vaccine consists of two shots that are given six months apart.   Students must have the first Hepatitis A shot prior to the beginning of school.

*          Secondly, students that are age 16 or older are required to have two Meningitis shots.  If students have already received their first Meningitis shot prior to their 16th birthday, they will need a booster shot. If students have received the first Meningitis shot after their 16th birthday, a booster shot is not required.  

If your child has already received the vaccinations, please contact your child’s health care provider to obtain a current immunization certificate to furnish to the school.  If your child has not received the vaccinations, the school nurses can assist you.  The Jackson County High School, in collaboration with the school nurses, will be offering a clinic on Monday, August 6, 2018 from 10:00am until 6:00pm at the Jackson County High School to administer the required vaccinations.  The school nurses will also be available during the school year to administer the required vaccinations. 

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s health care provider or the school nurse at your child’s school.
