Therefore, facial coverings will be optional on Jackson Local School District buildings and grounds effective June 2.

The Jackson Local School District appreciates the cooperation of parents, students, and staff during this school year. We look forward to seeing our students on the Jackson Local School District campus for planned summer events and camps.

VOLUNTARY COVID-19 VACCINATION CLINIC MAY 27

The Stark County Health Department will provide a school-based, voluntary Pfizer COVID-19 vaccination clinic at Jackson High School on May 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. This vaccination clinic is for all students 12 years and older. Parents wishing to receive a vaccine may do so as well. Students will enter Door 18W and exit Door 17W (see map below). Please keep in mind, there is a 15-minute observation period.

Parents are permitted to accompany their child(ren) inside the clinic. However, those parents wishing to wait outside may do so as well. Parents who will not be with their child(ren) will have to sign the attached permission form from the Stark County Health Department and have their child(ren) bring it to the clinic.

There is no out-of-pocket expense to families for this voluntary vaccination. The Stark County Health Department will bill an administration fee to insurance carriers for those students covered by their parent(s)’ coverage.

The second vaccination (at a Stark County Health Department facility) will be scheduled at this clinic.

IMPORTANT: All those who wish to receive the vaccine MUST complete the registration process by clicking on Invitation Web Link. Please read the attachment from the Stark County Health Department.

The Jackson Local School District is working collaboratively with the Stark County Health Department to provide this voluntary vaccination clinic. The district and health department are working together to provide a comprehensive vaccination clinic in August before the start of school. More information on details of that clinic will be provided at a later date.

JLSD SEEKS TO SERVE CHILDREN WITH DISABILITIES

Within the intent of the federal statutes (Rehabilitation Act of 1973-section 504 and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act IDEA-public law 105-17), the Jackson Local School District continues its effort to locate and identify children with disabilities from birth through age 21.

Children with disabilities have physical, emotional, and or mental impairments that may require special education. Public schools provide free and appropriate education regardless of a child’s disability. However, before these children can be served, they must be found.

Many of these children are not visible because they may not function in the community’s mainstream, and many are preschoolers. Parents may not realize that programs and services are available through their school district or from agencies in their community. If you are aware of a child who may need a special education program or services, contact Kathy Brand, Jackson Local School District’s Special Programs Director with any question you may have regarding the above notice.

The district is open to provide services (if your child is found eligible under IDEA) if you are interested in your child attending a public school setting.

WE NEED YOUR HELP ON YOUTUBE

Our live stream of athletic events has been very popular with students and fans. We are able to live stream boys and girls soccer, football, and volleyball. Please subscribe to our YouTube channel, which is found here. The more subscribers we have, the easier it is for us to deliver the stream on other platforms. You can also get to the live stream from the athletic webpage, found here and if you are following us on Facebook, you can watch our streaming events on that platform as well. Thanks to Akron Auto Auction and The Law Offices of Winkhart and Minor for making this possible.
