If your child has tested positive for COVID-19, be sure to get in touch with the school immediately with the proper paperwork. Assignments will be posted for students quarantining or who have tested positive on Canvas or Google Classroom.

Greetings Tiger Family,

Due to construction going on at Jefferson County Junior High School, all visitors will have to enter by the cafeteria breezeway connected to the elementary. Please remember to always stop by the office to sign in and get a visitor's pass.


We have established our Parent Teacher Association. Membership dues are $10 and can be paid in the main office.


Please drop your child off in front of the cafeteria to make sure they are checked before

entering the cafeteria.

Please make sure your child is on time (8:00 am) and prepared to learn.

Parent/Teacher Conferences should be scheduled through the Parent Liaison, Ophelia Rowan. (orowan@jcpsd.net)

All students are required to wear a mask to school every day. Crocs are NOT allowed!

How to get Involved?

Not sure how your child is performing?

Do you want to see your child's daily grades?

Do you want to monitor attendance and other information?

If you answered yes, please contact Ophelia Rowan (orowan@jcpsd.net) to create an Active Parent Account.
