We will need remote learning contracts and attestation forms for each student for the second nine weeks. These contracts and attestation forms will be going home with the students that are in cohort A and B. The parents of remote learners can stop by the school during school hours (7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.). We will also be open until 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 15 for anyone that needs to stop by after hours.
Jones County Public Schools Board of Education voted last night to move Jones County Pre-K through fifth grade students to Plan A starting October 26. We will remain on Plan B (two days per week) until October 26. Under Plan A all students can return to school in grades Pre-K through fifth grade. Parents can still opt for remote only learning if they feel that it is the best option for them. For the students who come for face to face learning, the students will come to the school building four days per week and will receive remote learning for one day per week via digital access on Wednesdays. The school will be thoroughly cleaned on Wednesdays and Fridays. We will be calling you by the end of next week to determine your learning option choices. This plan will not go into effect until October 26.
HMH is not working correctly at this time. We are working to resolve the issue.
