District Happenings

NOTICE: Monday, Jan. 26th at 1:25 p.m.
Jackson School District will be
CLOSED Tuesday, Jan. 27th

The Jackson School District will be CLOSED
on Tuesday, Jan. 27th due to anticipated weather conditions.

All after-school and evening activities are canceled when school is closed.

We will be sending out an automated call about this closure after we dismiss today.
As this storm develops, please continue to monitor this website for any additional updates that may affect the rest of this week.


This snow day means that there WILL BE SCHOOL for ALL STUDENTS on Thursday, Jan. 29th.  This Thursday was originally a day off for all students for transition day and professional day. However, in accordance with our contingency plans published on our school calendar, WE WILL NOW HAVE SCHOOL on Thursday. 

For our high school students, the snow day on Tuesday means that exams will now get bumped one day and will take place during Wednesday, Jan. 28th and Thursday, Jan. 29th. These days will be shortened days for HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS ONLY (for exams) - meaning high school students will be dismissed early under our shortened day schedule. All other students will have a full school day.

If this storm ends up impacting Wednesday, we will update this schedule again.

Sunday, Jan. 25 @ 7:30 p.m.

 Notice - Sunday, Jan. 25@ 7:30 p.m.

The Jackson School District will have EARLY DISMISSAL tomorrow (Monday, Jan. 26) due to anticipated weather conditions.

This means that all schools will operate on a SHORTENED DAY SCHEDULE. See our school hours page on our website for the schedule - be sure to scroll down to the SHORTENED DAY SCHEDULE.

It also means that:

  • PM Kindergarten is CANCELED
  • PM Pre-School programs are CANCELED
  • There will be NO PM CHILD CARE today
  • All after-school and evening activities are CANCELED

“They didn’t do math this way when I was a kid!’’

“When I was in school, we just read – 
we didn’t have to worry about all this other stuff.’’

Are you sometimes afraid to open that backpack to see what kind of “homework monster’’ lives in there?

Principal's Message

 January 23, 2015   


Dear Johnson Families,

I hope everyone had a great week.  This week our 5th grade continued to practice for the winter concert with great enthusiasm. We are looking forward to the concert on the 27th.  Next week we will also be closed to students on the 29th as teachers attend professional development workshops. On Friday I will host Lunch with the Principal for students who have displayed great character.


We have been counting the days we are in school so we can celebrate the 100th day in February.   This week, get ready with your flannel shirts and grunge gear as we celebrate the 90’s on the 90th day of school, January 28th, providing we don’t have any snow days.
