Non-Traditional Instruction

A letter from Superintendent Fields

Dear Jessamine Schools Families:

I’m excited to share with you that Jessamine County Schools is one of 13 districts that has been granted approval to offer “Non-Traditional Instruction” (NTI) days during the 2014-2015 school year.  This plan will allow the opportunity for all Jessamine students to be engaged in meaningful learning on inclement weather or emergency days when conditions prevent schools from being in session. 


Non-Traditional Instruction simply allows for the continuation of learning when students miss days of regular instruction.  Students will have the opportunity for skill reinforcement, remediation and enrichment through electronic or conventional paper lessons.  The Kentucky Department of Education has granted JCS 10 NTI days this school year, on which students will be expected to continue learning “off-site” (home, daycare, etc.).  All materials will be provided by your child’s teachers and students are expected to return completed work the next day school is in session.

Tipline.   The STOP! Tipline is designed for use as an "online" reporting/prevention tool which is provided free by the Kentucky Center for School Safety.

What do I need to know about the enterovirus?

Your child’s health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.  You’ve likely heard about enterovirus D68, or EV-D68 in the news recently.   Although enterovirus D68 is not a serious matter for most kids, it can be particularly problematic for children with underlying breathing issues or with a compromised immune system.   As with other illnesses, including the flu, we will monitor this situation in our schools and follow district protocol for any necessary precautions. 

We’ve included some information below to help you better understand the enterovirus D68.  As always, please consult your family physician with any additional questions or concerns or if your child exhibits symptoms.
