SCHOOL OPEN MONDAY
Jefferson County Schools will be open and in session for all students on Monday, February 26. We thank the many citizens of Jefferson County who supported our staff in their quest for a living wage and stable health insurance. We are pleased to be able to return to the work we love in the community we are helping to build.
Keeping You In the Loop
A big thank you to our Jefferson citizens who have stepped up to care for children in need.
Thanks to generous donations and volunteers every child who is normally provided food on the weekend will go home with 19 pre-packaged meals on Wednesday. A shout out to Billie’s Cafe for providing free warm meals for Ranson’s students.
In addition, both Iron Musket Cross Fit and Jefferson County Parks and Rec have stepped up to offer low cost child care Thursday and Friday.
We thank our generous Jefferson community and continue to hold out hope that reasonable adults will find reasonable solutions. We will continue to keep you updated. Please, see the latest articles below:

Dear JCS parents, students, and community,
