9/12 Update

Dear Parents, Staff, and Community Members,
 
We would like to thank the entire Jefferson Township community for their patience and understanding during the incident at the Middle and High Schools on Friday, September 10th. At no time was any student, staff, or the community at large in immediate danger and the steps taken on Friday were done out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of all, based on the climate in the world today.
 
While the incident is still under investigation, the school district and police department are unable to comment any further on the specifics of the situation; however, based on the preliminary results of the investigation, we believe it to be safe for students and staff to return to the Middle and High Schools on Monday, September 13th.  
 
Additional school counselors will be available at the Middle and High Schools for student and staff support tomorrow.  An increased police presence will be at all buildings to also provide support for our school community.
 
Should you have any questions, please contact your child's principal or the JTPD.
 
Thank you,
 
Jeanne Howe            Paul Castimore
Superintendent          Chief of Police
