IMPORTANT: Parent Place Account for Required School Forms
Doss HS Parents and Guardians,
Pleas follow these steps to set up your Parent Place account in order to complete the required yearly school forms online instead of paper copy.  If you set your account up last year, you can just sign in and complete the forms, or if you have never done this online, you can set up an account and then complete the forms. Thank you!


Go to JCPSKY.NET

Scroll down and click on "REGISTER AND APPLY" BUTTON

Click on the "COMPLETE FORMS" button.

If you have previously set up a PARENT PLACE account, you can sign into your account and complete the required forms for this year.

If you have not set up a PARENT PLACE account, you can create your account and complete the forms.

THIS IS NOT YOUR PARENT PORTAL ACCOUNT. YOUR PARENT PLACE ACCOUNT IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM WHERE YOU SIGN IN TO CHECK YOUR STUDENT'S GRADES.
Welcome Back!
August 5, 2021
Dear Doss HS Parents and Guardians,
On behalf of our entire school community, I want to welcome you back to school! I’m so excited to open our doors to students and staff, five days a week, and begin to create a sense of normalcy for our families. As we have done since the start of the pandemic, we will continue to be flexible and adapt to any changes, and of course our priority will remain on providing engaging, challenging and equitable opportunities to all our students. 
A summary of our district’s back to school plan, called A New Way Forward, can be found here. The plan includes the latest state guidance and recommendations, district PPE guidelines, virtual school options, and racial equity protocols. 
In addition, there are many updates I want to highlight for families:
●       The Jefferson County Board of Education approved a requirement of masks for all vaccinated and unvaccinated students, staff, and visitors inside school property and on school buses, unless this requirement has been waived due to an individual’s medical necessity.  Staff and students are not required to wear masks outside on school property.
●      Masks should adhere to the school’s dress policies (i.e., no offensive words or drawings.) The CDC recommends surgical or disposable face masks, or masks that are made of breathable material such as cotton or other tightly woven fabric. They should fit properly, have 2-3 layers or inner filter pockets. Specific guidance can be found at CDC Guidance for Wearing Masks.
●      While the mask mandate is universal at this time, you may occasionally see a student or staff member in our building without the required face covering. Individuals with a completed medical waiver on file are exempt from this requirement.  In these instances, the individual has completed a Medical Mask Waiver Request Form, which has been signed off on and submitted to the school by his or her health provider.  For a copy of the Medical Mask Waiver Request Form for Students, please click here.
●      Our school, like every school in JCPS, has a Healthy at School Officer, who will be your primary contact to report a Covid-19 exposure, positive Covid-19 case, or ask questions regarding the virus. Our school’s Healthy at School Officer is Michael Slider.  Mr. Slider can be reached at michael.slider@jefferson.kyschools.us. He will work with the district’s contact tracers to identify possible exposures, coordinate school-level data with district and local health officials and provide important information that you’ll need to keep your family safe.
●      Contact Tracing - If your child is exposed or possibly exposed to an individual with Covid-19 at school, a contact tracer will reach out to you and advise of steps you should take, including quarantine guidelines.
●       JCPS will continue to clean facilities carefully. In general, cleaning once a day is enough to sufficiently remove potential virus that may be on surfaces. High-touch, shared surfaces may be cleaned more frequently.
●      Finally, communication is critical during this time and you will continue to receive frequent updates from the school and district.  Please sign up for School Messenger and/or School CNXT, if you haven’t already.  SchoolMessenger is a one-way messaging tool used at some schools and by the district to send texts and emails directly. Click here to sign up for this platform.
To further enhance family communication, we encourage you to also utilize SchoolCNXT.  With SchoolCNXT, you can receive messages from the district, schools and teachers, and families can connect with one another and connect with teachers through the messaging function. SchoolCNXT also offers a setting to receive information in your family's preferred language. Click here to sign up for this platform.  If you have already signed up but are not receiving daily emails from the district, please check and make sure your contact information is up-to-date.

Sincerely,
Todd Stockwell
Executive Principal
