Distance Learning to Begin at JA on Monday

March 17, 2020 / All News

Jackson Academy is carefully refining and finalizing plans to keep JA students engaged in their education, while adhering to precautions concerning the coronavirus pandemic. We are coordinating with teachers and developing appropriate methods of distance learning this week and will be prepared to launch effective distance learning on Monday, March 23. Unless you are notified otherwise, JA will postpone a return to campus for all students and will proceed with distance learning on this date.

Students will receive further learning plans from JA’s academic divisions on or before Friday, March 20, at noon. Certain classes may receive information earlier than Friday. Parents, please encourage your students to check their email frequently throughout the day.

As a reminder, MAIS has already granted a waiver for this first week’s delay, which will not have to be physically made up to have the required number of school days.
