The Weekly Buzz Update

Jefcoed Updates COVID Status for all District Schools

Earlier in the week, our district updated its COVID Response Plan for all schools. An email was sent out to families of all students on August 25th from Jefferson County Superintendent, Dr. Walter Gonsoulin, outlining procedural changes for masks and quarantines/exclusions.

We wanted to notify you that when we are notified of a positive case involving a student or a staff member here at our school, we will notify you as soon as possible so that you can make important decisions with your family.

A phone call will come home to you indicating that a student in your child's class or on your child's bus has tested positive. Since many families have multiple children in multiple grades, we will identify the grade level to help you distinguish between children. Please review the information in the letter when you receive this call. Each time a student is identified, you will be notified by phone of this occurrence. Some may occur as early as this evening.

The message will indicate you should review the information in the district letter (that can be found below as a JPEG and a PDF. This information will be place in each Weekly Buzz moving forward so that it can be easily located by families.

The administration, faculty, and staff at Corner Middle School always want your students at school whenever possible. We would, however, encourage you to keep any student who is symptomatic at home. Continue to notify us of students who have tested positive. It is our hope and prayer that you and your family can steer clear of this virus impacting so many at this time! Thank you for your assistance and your continued support of Corner Middle School as we work to navigate choppy waters brought on by this pandemic!

District Mask Policy Updated

Based on data indicating an increase in isolations and quarantines due to COVID-19, the Jefferson County Board of Education has updated its mask policy for students, faculty, and staff in Jefferson County Schools. Families should continue to provide students a mask prior to entering a school bus or facilities. Students should continue to wear a mask (fitted properly) when they are riding a school bus as they have since school began. Please assist our school by providing your student a mask to wear during academic classes that occur in close contact situations.


Thank you for your cooperation!
