Johnson County School District No. 1 is reopening schools for greater daily attendance.

Parents, guardians, and family members can now have lunch with students, visit classrooms for parent-teacher conferences, and attend special events and school-wide meetings.

According to a statement from JCSD1 Superintendent Charles Auzqui, the new visitation policies include appropriate safety and security measures, as well as advance notice of visitation.

COVID tests will not be required, but visitors who have shown symptoms or tested positive within five days of their visit will be required to delay their visit.

Those wishing to visit for lunch with their student should give advance notice to ensure catering teams are ready to serve all guests, with students remaining the first priority.

The daily limit for lunch visitors will be 10 per grade level at each elementary school to ensure that facilities are not overwhelmed and that each regular lunch period stays on schedule.

Questions about visits can be directed to each school.

The district is in the process of developing new parent/guardian volunteer policies, which will be launched in August 2022.

You can find more information about tours and volunteering below.

We are also in the process of developing new parent/guardian volunteer policies, which will be launched in August 2022. The District’s goal is to improve family engagement while ensuring our program is focused on goals and protects critical instructional time for all students. Everything that happens in our classroom should increase student learning and improve academic achievement.

Administrators will design the program with input from the community, keeping the following parameters in mind:

  • What is our educational guidance for volunteer parents/guardians?
  • What do our educators need from parent/guardian volunteers to be supported in each classroom? Ultimately, it is the prerogative of teachers whether they have volunteers in their classroom.
  • How will we ensure the protection of essential student information (confidentiality)?
  • What is our approach to safety and security, including the launch of our new digital visitor management system?
  • How will we implement the program in an organized, safe and secure manner?
    • Application process
    • Parent/guardian training
    • Deployment of each volunteer parent/guardian for our greatest benefit
    • Ongoing training and use of staff to ensure the program improves student learning and outcomes
