Congratulations to the following students for being our attendance incentive winners for the week of Nov. 16th - 20th.  Some of these students will be getting calls about pizza deliveries directly to their homes.  Keep showing up, and we may be delivering pizza to your home!  *One pizza winner per academy based on random draw.

Business and Finance Academy

Attendance All-Star - Chris Long - Ms. Johnson - He’s in my 9 am class on Mondays and Thursdays and never misses, which is impressive enough on its own. Also works very hard to keep on top of his standards.   

Attendance All-Star - Troy Churchill (pizza winner) - Mrs. Zadeh -  Troy is a hardworking and dedicated student who has attended all of his live classes for US History. He is very respectful and intuitive in everything that he does. I am honored to have him as a student this year!

Doss HS - ESS + Virtual Tutoring Services

Doss Families, 

Please read below for information about ESS (after-school help) and virtual tutoring for Doss students!

ESS:

We have now begun our Extended School Services (ESS) program for Doss students.
  • Students who are in need of additional support in their classes will be encouraged by their teachers to attend.
  • Students will participate online through Google Meet or Microsoft Teams.
  • The program takes place Monday-Thursday for one hour, between the hours of 2:30 – 8:00 pm (designated hour varies by teacher).
  • Please keep an eye out for an invitation coming from your student’s teacher.

Virtual Tutoring:

In an effort to provide additional support for our students and families during NTI, we are excited to offer virtual tutoring/homework help through a company called FEV Tutor. Students in grades 3-12 can access the program directly through their Clever account to either schedule an appointment or request on-demand help. 

Tutoring help is available to students Monday – Friday, 7:00 am – 10:00 pm, and on the weekends. The program can be translated into over 40 languages for our EL students.

You can learn more about this service by watching this session from the Digital Learning Channel.

If families have any questions about this free virtual tutoring program or need technical support, they can contact FEV Tutor directly at: ky@fevtutor.com or 855-763-2607.

Dear JCPS Families:

Through an Executive Order, Governor Andy Beshear has issued new restrictions to stop the spread of COVID-19 across the state.  Jefferson County is firmly in the “red” category right now, which is defined by the state as Substantial Community Transmission-Critical.  While we had hoped to see a decrease in the trend data, we have only seen a sharp increase in recent weeks.

The Executive Order calls for all K-12 schools to hold virtual learning only.  As a result, all JCPS schools will remain in Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) through at least January 4.  We will evaluate the data and confer with state health officials in mid-December to make future determinations.  

The changes announced by the Governor also impact athletics.  The Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) has voted to delay the start of winter sports.  Beginning today, we are suspending all JCPS winter sports activities, including small group workouts.  All winter sports practices will be suspended until at least December 14.  The KHSAA is moving forward with their state football playoffs.  JCPS football teams will be allowed to practice and participate in postseason play. Strict health and safety guidance will be followed during these practices and games.

We must all do our part to protect those around us during this time.  By working together we can reopen our schools sooner and resume the activities that we know have a positive impact on our students.  

Sincerely,

Jefferson County Public Schools
