No school in Johnson County today-Thursday, February 14, 2019.
Students and Parents of Johnson Central High School and Johnson County Middle School, This is Superintendent Thom Cochran with a message for each of you. Today, there has been more circulation of rumors of threats at the high school. First, let me say that we take each and every possible threat at our school and district with the upmost seriousness. We have worked diligently throughout the day and evening in attempts to get to the bottom of this. We have talked to multiple students; to this point there is no evidence that any of these rumors have any merit or truth to them. No student that we have spoken with has heard anyone make a threat. There have also been rumors that there is a “list” of students. We have searched all day, and we have not seen any list nor have any students whom we have talked to seen any list. We have been and are continuing to work with all local and state authorities to ensure the safety of each of our students and staff. We will be in school tomorrow, and just like yesterday, we will have added security including State Police, the Paintsville Police Department, and the Johnson County Sheriff’s department along with our Safety Resource Officer. Parents and students, we urge you to be vigilant and report any activity that makes you feel uncomfortable. Students if you know any information, we ask that you immediately report it to a teacher or school administrator. To all students and parents, we ask that you do not post rumors on social media-if we post things that we do not know as facts, it does nothing but incite more fear in our community. Instead, if you hear or have information please call JCHS at 789-2500, the JCBOE at 789-2530, The Paintsville Police Department at 789-2603, The Johnson County Sheriff’s Department at 789-3411, or the KY State Police at 606-433-7711. Tomorrow morning, we will be turning all of our gathered information to law enforcement so that they can continue to assist in getting a resolution to this matter. I’m so sorry that someone has caused so much panic in our children and community. Rest assured that we will not stop until we find the person/persons responsible for these alleged threats, rumors, and disruptions to our school, and we will prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. Our kids deserve to attend school where they feel safe and secure so that they will be able to learn.
See all current events and help promote JC Schools. Please like district and school Facebook pages. Also, follow each on Twitter! Use the attached document to link directly to each social media platform! https://goo.gl/w3Ymtq #Eagle4LIfe

Congratulations to Highland Elementary 4th grade teacher, Mrs. Melanie Ramey, on being selected as a finalist for the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching! The PAEMST is the Nation’s highest honor for teachers of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Enacted by Congress in 1983, this program authorizes the President to bestow the award each year. If she is selected as the State Winner she will get to go to the White House to receive the award. Good luck Mrs. Ramey!!
Please share!! Cheerleaders, Coach Tommy McKenzie was informed today that Sheldon Clark has had to move our game to Monday instead of Tuesday. I am so sorry but in order to for SCHS to complete district play, they had to reschedule their district opponents. So, we will be honoring former cheerleaders MONDAY same times same place same opponent. We are so sorry for the inconvenience, and please help us spread the word!!
Due to illness, potential snow/ice covered roads on Thursday morning, and another snow threat on Thursday night along with cold temps/single digit windchill in the forecast, Johnson County Schools will be CLOSED the remainder of the week. Friday will be an NTI Day. Students, please get all of your work finished for both NTI Days (Wednesday and Friday). Please stay home as much as possible to avoid the spread of illness. Have a safe and restful end to your week.
This is Thom Cochran, Superintendent of Johnson County Schools with an important message for all students and parents of Johnson County Schools. This evening, I have been informed that there has been a confirmed case of Hepatitis A in our school district. This confirmed case is a Non-food service staff member at Johnson County Middle School. In addition to that case, we have confirmed cases of both Influenza A and B at multiple schools. As an added level of precaution to our routine cleaning, we will be closing schools tomorrow January 23, 2019. To ensure the safety of our students and staff, extra cleaning and disinfecting will be completed during this time. As everyone has been informed, Kentucky law required that each student receive the Hepatitis A series before the start of the 2018-2019 school year. If your child has completed this series of injections, then there should be no risk. However, if your child has not done so, please take this opportunity to obtain this immunization. Tomorrow will be an NTI Day for Johnson County Schools. Please assist your child in completing all of his or her work; all lessons will be posted by 10:00am. Thank you for your patience and continued support of Johnson County Schools.
