Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) remains committed to the health and safety of our students and staff. JCPS leaders continue to monitor developments in our community and are in close contact with local and state health officials.
If your child tests positive for COVID-19
If your student tests positive for COVID-19, please let the school nurse or Healthy at School officer know. If it is after hours, please call Health Services at 502-485-3387 to let them know. A nurse will talk to you and go over dates your child might return to school and help with any questions or concerns you may have.
Generally, students who are positive for COVID-19 are able to return to school when at least 5 days have passed since symptoms first appeared, symptoms are improving and they have been fever-free for 24 hours. A well-fitting mask should be worn through day 10.
The JCPS dashboard is available for the community to view information about the number of positive cases and the number of contacts that have to be quarantined at each school in our district. View the current counts of positive cases and those who are currently in quarantine. The information included in this COVID-19 in JCPS dashboard reflects the total number of students and staff that have ever tested positive or were quarantined since the start of the 2021-22 school year.
Any student or staff with proper consent may be tested by school health services staff. When available, At-Home tests will be provided to students and staff who choose to do weekly screening testing. When available, At Home tests can be provided to family members living in the household of COVID-positive students and staff.
To participate in this testing, students must have a consent form on file. You'll find that form under the required forms list in Parent Place. Please make sure to complete the form with your preference if you haven't already. Schools can also print hard copies for families to complete.
Parents or guardians can access the form online by following these step-by-step directions:
