• Alert: Johnson County Schools will be closed tomorrow, February 21 and Friday, February 22 due to continued widespread illness among our students and employees. In making this decision we have consulted with our local health care professionals. The number of patients being seen has not diminished and we feel that returning to school this week could extend this wave of flu and other illnesses. We have continued and will continue to disinfect our schools, and we commend our custodial employees for all of their hard work. We hope that all of you who are sick feel better soon, and that the rest of you remain healthy. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Close alert

Schools Implement the Raptor Visitor Management System

Johnson County Schools is pleased to announce that we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our schools to strengthen our program of campus safety for students and faculty. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will allow us to do that. The Raptor system will better allow us to screen visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.

The School Board voted as last night's meeting to use President's Day, which is February 18th 2019, as an instructional day instead of a holiday for students. This is due to the number of snow days that have already been missed so far in the school year.

Please make sure to update your calendars and plan on your student attending that day.
