Check out all the great clubs and activities that THS has to offer for grades 8-12.
Tuckerman High School students will return to onsite learning on the Tuckerman Campus on Wednesday, September 23rd.
In an effort to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus within our staff and students we are asking that all parent/guardians notify our Point Of Contact nurse if a student is tested for COVID, someone in the house test Positive for COVID, or if there is someone in the house that has been exposed to a known positive case. In the event of testing of anyone in the household - students must remain at home until the results come back. Please contact Stacy Bright at 870-349-2657 ext. 210 or email information to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will allow us to take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of all students and staff.
Tuckerman High School is pivoting to Blended Learning starting tomorrow September 10th and continuing thru September 18th. Tuckerman High School will be closed to students during this time, with plans to return onsite on September 21st. Tuckerman Elementary School, Tuckerman Preschool, Swifton Middle School and Swifton Preschool will remain open and school will continue as usual with onsite instruction. Although we had a low percentage of our students at THS who tested positive, they were involved in large group activities that required several students to quarantine for the next 14 days.
The IGNITE program students will be virtual tomorrow.
All extracurricular activities at THS are suspended until students return to onsite instruction. This includes but not limited too: All sports competitions and practices, Club and Organization meetings, Fundraisers, E-Sports, Cheerleading practices, etc...
Breakfast and Lunch will still be served for THS students. Any student wanting to eat breakfast or lunch please call Krystal Person at 870-217-3769 or email at email@example.com and place your order for the following day so they cafeteria will know how much food to prepare.

The 2020-2021 Jackson County School District school year is underway and we wanted to take this opportunity to say how proud we are of the students, staff, and parents for getting the year off to a great start. Everyone is having to adjust to a unique set of challenges which have the potential to create anxiety. We are impressed with the positive attitudes and the desire to make the best of a difficult situation. As much as we would like to make it through the year without any COVID-19 cases, we all realize that is an unrealistic expectation. Therefore, we wanted to take this opportunity to explain the protocols we will use in the event we have one or more positive cases.
Should someone, student or faculty, test positive for Covid-19 we will immediately begin the process of contact tracing. Contact tracing involves determining if anyone at school qualifies as a “close contact”. A close contact is anyone who has been within six feet for more that fifteen minutes of someone who has tested positive for the virus. The school will contact the parent of any child who is determined to be a close contact. We will also contact the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) and the Arkansas Division of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to acquire their guidance in best practices to stop the spread. Please remember that in order to protect the privacy of students and staff, we cannot share personal information regarding a positive case. Therefore, we will not issue a public statement in every situation where someone has tested positive or been quarantined due to the virus.
In the event that we have multiple positive cases, it is possible that we may have to pivot to at home virtual classes. This will depend on the number of cases and could result in pivoting a single classroom, grade, building, or the entire district to at home virtual classrooms. The timeframe for this will be determined on the length of time it takes to control the spread. The district will work in conjunction with ADH and DESE to decide when to resume on campus instruction.
Let’s continue to work together to control the spread of the virus while providing a quality education for the children of JCSD.
Information regarding the levels of response, and much more, can be found on the DESE website at: http://dese.ade.arkansas.gov/divisions/communications/arkansas-ready-for-learning.
Additional information regarding symptoms of Covid-19 and strategies to avoid exposure can be found at the Arkansas Department of Health website and the CDC website at the following web addresses: https://www.healthy.arkansas.gov/programs-services/topics/novel-coronavirus https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html
As announced by Governor Asa Hutchinson & Secretary of Education Johnny Key, beginning Thursday, September 3rd, ALL students will receive free breakfast and lunch until December 31st, 2020. This does not include any additional items purchased in the cafeteria.
We still must have every household complete and submit a free and reduced lunch application if you have not already done so. It is very important that we get these applications returned, as they effect the amount of other funding the school district receives.
