Monday is the first day of school for Jennings students in Pawnee County.

The district is offering families in-person, blended, and distance learning options and it has a full “Return to Learn” plan for COVID-19 as students start the semester.

Masks will be available to students but are optional. The school will encourage social distancing and will assign seats on school buses to ensure safe spacing.

If a student, teacher or staff member gets COVID, the district will do contact tracing and notify parents if their child was within six feet of the infected person.

The district will track COVID-19 cases among students and staff and will share the latest data each Friday on its Facebook page.

Jennings is asking parents to pre-screen their children for symptoms at home. The district said parents were fantastic at being diligent in looking for signs and symptoms last school year and leaders hope this year is no different.

JPS has a checklist for parents online here.

The district said if COVID-19 numbers within the district spike, there is a possibility it will have to transition to temporary distance learning.
