COVID prompts Jackson Memorial HS to go all remote

Jackson,nj- A letter sent by the Jackson School district notified parents tonight that JMHS is going all remote learning until January 19th. 

Dear JMHS Parents/Guardians and Staff,

This letter is to inform you that there have been multiple positive COVID-19 cases reported to us today and in the past few days that have prompted the quarantining of 51 individuals (both students and staff) in our school.

After working with the Ocean County Health Department to analyze the facts and circumstances of these cases, we must move all students at Jackson Memorial High School to ALL REMOTE instruction effective immediately through Feb. 19. We anticipate being able to return to our in-person learning program on Feb. 22.

This move is necessary to ensure the safety of our students and staff and also because of staffing shortages caused by the mandated quarantines. This affects all Jackson Memorial High School extra-curricular and athletic activities including practices and games, which are suspended during this same time period.

This does not affect any other district school.
