Important Announcement Sticky Note
Doss High School Families,

There is a lot of information in this email, so please be sure to read through the end and pay close attention to the items that are linked below.

The spread of COVID-19 has caused significant staffing shortages within Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS). As you know, JCPS closed school Monday, January 10 due to the limited number of staff available to safely operate our schools. Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) will begin on Tuesday, January 11 and will continue through Friday, January 14 for all JCPS students. If our staffing levels return to a point that we can safely operate school, our scheduled return to in-person instruction will be Tuesday, January 18.  We will continue to keep families informed of any changes.
We know that you may have a lot of questions and/or concerns about the challenges NTI will create for your Doss student and your family. This round of NTI is temporary – we will welcome a return to in-person instruction as soon as staffing levels allow. During this brief period of NTI, we want to make sure you know exactly what to expect and what is expected of your student, so we have included several important details below. Thank you for your attention to these details and for your patience as we work through what is a very challenging time for our community. 
  • Schedule: Doss students will follow a virtual version of their normal Burgundy and Gold Day schedule. Each class period, teachers will teach a live session during the first 20 minutes of the period, which student are expected to attend virtually, and will then be available the remainder of the period to support students and answer questions.  Tuesday 1/11 is a Gold Day. Wednesday 1/12 is a Burgundy Day. Thursday 1/13 is a Gold Day. Friday 1/14 is a Burgundy Day. You can view a copy of the Doss High School NTI 3.0 Schedule HERE.
  • Attendance: Each teacher will take attendance each day.  Attendance can be counted in a variety of ways.  Students can be considered "present" if they participate in live/virtual classes, submit their work or assignments, and/or directly communicate with teachers.  Our teachers will be continuing with their normal pacing and instruction and it is important that students attend virtual sessions and keep up with the work and instruction that is provided each day over NTI.
  • Technology: All Doss students were issued a chrome book in August. Through this chrome book, students will be able to access all live sessions through Google Meet/Microsoft Teams as well as all classwork in Google Classroom. Specific questions about live sessions and classwork should be directed toward individual teachers. If you have any chrome book concerns, please call the school at 485-8239.
  • Google Classroom: Google Classroom will be the hub for student instructional access throughout NTI.  Teachers will post resources, assignments, videos, and links to their live instruction on their Google Classroom.  Instructions for logging into the Google Classroom can be found at this link. .  If your student is unable to access their account, please contact the school at 485-8239 or reach out to one of their teachers. 
  • Supports: Students will continue to have access to other supports during NTI including: special education, English language learner support, counseling support and our mental health practitioner. 
  • Meals: During NTI, JCPS will provide meal distribution at the following sites from 11:00 – 1:00 on Tuesday and Thursday. Doss High School is one of these locations. 
  • Contact: If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Doss High School directly at 485-8239.  If you are unable to get ahold of someone, please leave a message and we will follow up with you as quickly as we can. Visit the Doss High School Staff Directory on our website HERE to contact teachers directly.
  • COVID Screening or Questions: JCPS will continue to provide COVID screenings at middle and high schools across the county from 3:00-7:00 each afternoon for anyone interested in screening.  It is encouraged to sign up for an appointment in advance, and please be prepared that there are often long lines and it may take an extended period of time to go through the actual screening.  If your student has recently tested positive for COVID or been a close contact with someone that has tested positive, please reach out to our Healthy at School Officer, Michael Slider at michael.slider@jefferson.kyschools.us, who will work with you to make sure you know your student's timeline for return to school.
  • Athletics/Activities: JCPS is currently planning on continuing with extra-curricular athletics and activities depending on the availability of staff members.  If your student is a member of an athletic team or other extra-curricular program, your coach or sponsor will be in contact with any schedule information during NTI.
We are extremely proud of the work students, teachers, staff, and our families are doing during these unprecedented and challenging times for our community. We are here to support in any way we can. Please reach out with any questions, and visit our website at www.dosshighschool.com for any updates. We look forward to an in-person return very soon. 

Thanks, 
Todd Stockwell, Executive Principal

Students will test with their academy on the academy specific test date and additional information will follow in the coming weeks.  

NEW THIS YEAR: Parents/Guardians MUST complete a Privacy Consent Form for their student(s). 
  • Selecting "YES" on the consent form allows ACT to send score reports to colleges/universities/NCAA/Military/Scholarship Organizations.

PLEASE NOTE: This only impacts students who plan to send their test scores to colleges/universities, not who will test. Students without consent ARE STILL EXPECTED TO TAKE THE ACT. 
You can digitally sign the consent form here: ACT Privacy Consent Form. Your student will also receive a PAPER COPY of the consent form from their 11th grade English teacher. This information can be found in their English teachers Google Classroom as well as on the Doss High School website at www.dosshighschool.com
