  • Incident Friday, Sept. 19 Following the Football Game
     
    Dear Parents/Guardians:
     
    As I am sure you have heard, there was an incident that occurred after Friday's football game in the JHS stadium.  Two Jefferson students were involved and one was "stabbed" in the lower left side.  Security officers were on the scene and the situation was handled quickly.  The young man who was injured was taken by ambulance to Jefferson Memorial, treated, and released.  He is home with his family and doing well.  The  second young man was taken into custody by the sheriff's office.  No one else was involved nor injured.  The stadium was already clearing at the time of the incident and was completely emptied within ten minutes of the incident.
     
    At this time, we are certain that this was an isolated incident involving only these two boys. That being said, please know that we take this matter seriously and we will investigate thoroughly and discipline appropriately.  Schools will operate on Monday, Sept. 22 as usual, on a regular bell schedule.   In addition, we will have extra counselors in the building Monday morning for those students who feel a need for emotional support. 
     
    Please be assured that Jefferson County Schools will continue to follow all safety procedures and protocols to keep your children safe and will act accordingly whenever a report is received or an incident occurs.
     
    Sincerely,
    Kenneth M. Garvey
    Principal
    Jefferson High School

  • ATTENTION PARENTS:
    Please use the Staff Parking Lot in the front of the building or the student Blue Parking Lot (entrance off of Shenandoah Junction Road) for dropping off students between 7:20 and 7:45 in the morning or picking up students between 2:25 and 3:00 in the afternoon. You may also use the lot to the south side of the building (near the portables).  Please do not park or idle your vehicle in the bus lane area in front of the building or on the north side (near the auditorium/gymnasium entrances) during these times as it makes it difficult for our buses to maneuver.  This is especially true in the afternoons outside of the auditorium and gymnasium entrances as our special needs and sports buses are picking up students. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
