Letter From the Superintendent

At Jennings County School Corporation, there is nothing we take more seriously than the safety of our students. In the past week, some students and members of the public have raised concerns about one or more incidents regarding school safety. Federal privacy laws prohibit us from sharing information regarding any specific student or incident. Please remember that postings on social media and shared information are based on gossip, not facts.

JCHS Senior Class Car Was Fundraiser

Have you noticed dirt piling up on your car's hood? Or perhaps the summer bugs have taken over your car's front grill? Then you need to have your car washed by our own JCHS Seniors on Saturday, September 28! Drive on over to Greg Hicks's parking lot next to Wendy's (North Vernon) and get your car washed and dried from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. The proceeds from this car wash go directly toward the seniors' trip to Gulf Shores, AL over spring break. If you are feeling generous but can't attend the event Saturday, send us your donations! We'd love them! Please make checks out to JCHS. Thank you for considering our event in your busy schedules!
