Jackson County Public School District is in the final stages of planning for school re-entry. The final plan will be shared next week. District and school administrators are committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all students and staff. The district would like to share with you a statement posted in June by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) regarding the importance of students returning to school in the fall.
The statement expressed that, “Schools are fundamental to child and adolescent development and well-being and provide our children and adolescents with academic instruction, social and emotional skills, safety, reliable nutrition, physical/speech and mental health therapy, and opportunities for physical activity, among other benefits.”
