FACE MASK STRATEGY DRAMATICALLY REDUCES CLASSROOM QUARANTINES

The Jackson Local School District continues to track data related to COVID-19 in our district. We are heading into the second week of requiring face masks for all students and staff members inside our buildings and we are already seeing a dramatic reduction in classroom quarantines.

Additionally, we continue to identify more lunch spaces in our buildings to allow us to maximize social distance in our eating spaces.

The district appreciates the overwhelming support from our students, staff, parents, and stakeholders during these times. Thank you, Polar Bears!

NORTHEAST OHIO YOUTH HEALTH SURVEY

Students in grades 7-12 will have the opportunity to participate in the Northeast Ohio Youth Health Survey later this month. This is part of Stark County's efforts to prevent youth suicide and advance mental health initiatives among our youth.

This survey is the result of collaboration among the Ohio Department of Health, the Stark County Health Department, and the Jackson Local School District. Some things parents and guardians should know about the survey:

  • The survey is anonymous and evidence-based with assistance from the Centers for Disease Control.
  • The survey is designed to understand the elements contributing to suicide among adolescents in Stark County.
  • This survey is part of a multi-year effort to guide county, school district, and community-based suicide prevention and response activities.
  • The survey is designed to give an anonymous understanding of students' mental health.
  • The survey is voluntary.
  • All families of 7-12 students received an email with additional information. An opt-out form was attached to that email, or you can email your building principal.
  • The survey can be viewed by parents at your child's school.
