School Closure

Message from Mr.Kirk Credeur:

I hope this email finds everyone safe and protected from the storm.  Thanks to Ms. Meghan Campbell and her capable staff,  payroll will be submitted on time to everyone with payroll direct deposit.  Individuals without direct deposit can pick up their payroll checks at Jennings High School starting Monday, August 31, 2020 8 am to 12 noon. These checks must be picked up by the employee with proper identification.  We highly encourage all employees to sign up for direct deposit.  If we were hit as hard as our neighbors, we would not have the ability to hand out paper checks. 

Although our schools have suffered little damage compared to what they endured, we anticipate that it may be several days before proper power is restored to all the facilities.  I am therefore cancelling school for next week,  Monday,  August 31 through Friday, September 4.  This time will allow our employees and community the opportunity to assess and remediate damage to their properties and hopefully have their electricity restored.  Many of our school sites are also currently  being utilized by various military, state and church organizations that are here to facilitate a quicker recovery.

Please stay safe as you clean your properties and care for your loved ones.  We will return stronger than ever and will provide our students the type of school year that they deserve.
