Jefferson County Schools are closed and all buildings are closed. That does NOT mean that our instruction and dedication to our students has stopped!

Thank you to all of our families who are navigating this new approach to instruction and learning! We are working hard to ensure that students will still have access to our dedicated teachers and instruction! You have been a critical connection to this and we appreciate you!

Every student has received at least one phone call this week from a teacher at CWSES. This will continue.  We will be required to speak directly with your child each week.  If they are temporarily with someone else, please provide contact information to their teacher. 

LIVE weekly meetings/classes have already started for some of our teachers! All others will begin soon!

It is imperative that we have EVERY student's contact information.  To provide updated telephone, address, and parent email information for your child, please call our school office at 304-725-4395 and leave a detailed message.  Mrs. Reed and Mrs. Fravel will check these daily and update our files for teachers.

This week has been spent planning out for new routines that involve teachers instructing from home with students who are learning from home! Please work directly with your child's teacher to ensure that this occurs. Unless you have applied for "Home Schooling" and been approved, your child remains a student here and we expect to be able to provide instruction to the best of our remote ability. 

 For up-to-date information, please visit the JCS Homepage.

To get started, students were provided with temporary at-home materials (including those listed below) on March 13.  All teachers will begin a routine beginning March 20 that involves at-home instruction.
