School Nutrition Office posts their food sites and schedules

Our number one priority is to feed the students of Johnson County. Even in a crisis, we are still striving to feed every child we possibly can. I'm asking parents to please help support this program so we can operate as long as we are allowed to.

UPDATED: After giving much thought and considerations, we have decided to alter our original meal delivery program. Beginning Monday, March 23rd we will continue to have the one drive-up pick-up location at Mountain City Elementary. However, we will begin to have our bus drivers deliver meals to houses located on their normal routes. This will allow meals to be delivered to children throughout the county that would otherwise not be able to receive a meal.

Buses will begin their routes at 10:30 a.m. each day Monday through Friday. Students will receive two meals, one for breakfast and one for lunch. If your Child currently does not ride a bus or is not enrolled in school yet, but need a meal delivered please call central office at 727-2640.

Once again beginning Monday we will be delivering meals to our students using our buses and bus routes. This is open to any child 18 years and under. For more information or to request a delivery please call us at 727-2640.

Johnson County Schools Health and Safety Update COVID-19 Updates

Johnson County Schools - Health and Safety Update - March 6, 2020

Johnson County Schools is monitoring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website for information and guidelines regarding the status of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We understand that school staff, parents and the community are concerned about everyone's health and safety. Administrators in Johnson County will keep a close eye on guidance from state, local and national experts on the issue. Our custodial staff continue to disinfect the classrooms and buildings with disinfectants that are shown to protect against the coronavirus COVID-19. Since this is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation, the CDC and other health authorities from around the globe are closely monitoring the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak and are implementing measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

It is our goal to keep students, employees and the community healthy and safe. We will continue to work with local, state and federal health agencies to make necessary revisions to our Response Plan as new information becomes available. At this time, the CDC recommends guidelines and precautions similar to the flu; wash hands regularly with warm water and soap, and cover coughs and sneezes. For information and resources on the coronavirus COVID-19, please visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website:  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

Updates to the Johnson County Schools Call Out System School Messenger Image

Johnson County Schools have been using software for several years to communicate with its parents, staff and students about local events, school schedule changes and general school related information. There have been some major updates to the software over the past couple of months that have not allowed our e-mail communication to go out alongside our voice messages. This has created some confusion and has limited effective communication between the schools and parents. With assistance and guidance from our software team at School Messenger, we have a solution in place that will allow everyone to continue receiving calls via voice and e-mail.
