Johnson County Schools Re-Entry Guiding Principles

The Johnson County public school corporations appreciate the patience and understanding of our families and communities during the last few months. Johnson County Superintendents have created guiding principles that each district will use when developing plans to return for the 2020-2021 school year.  These principles are based on current health and safety recommendations and guidance from the Indiana Governor, Indiana State Department of Health, and Johnson County Health Department.

Johnson County Schools will: 

  • Start school as scheduled with no alteration to published school calendars.  
  • Limit school building visitors.
  • Implement appropriate safety measures as recommended by state and county health officials. These measures include, but are not limited to:
    • Strongly encourage students and staff members to wear masks with masks required in some settings   
    • Provide frequent opportunities for handwashing and/or hand sanitation. 
    • Require students and staff to be fever free (and fever-reducing medication free) for 72 hours prior to returning to school. 

Once district plans are finalized, they will be submitted to Dr. Moorman, Health Officer, Johnson County Health Department for approval. 

Please understand that these are beginning steps as we plan to return to school this fall and that as guidance changes, modifications may be made. Additional details will be forthcoming from each school district in July.  

Thank you for supporting your Johnson County public schools as we look forward to a safe reopening for the 2020-2021 school year.
