Flu Update 1/13/20

Hello Jessup Families,

The flu is now reported in all 50 states. The CDC estimates 10 million cases, 4800 deaths and 870,000 hospitalizations.

How the Flu Spreads - Person to Person

People with flu can spread it to others up to about 6 feet away. Most experts think that flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Less often, a person might get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.

When Flu Spreads

People with flu are most contagious in the first three to four days after their illness begins.  Most healthy adults may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick. Children and some people with weakened immune systems may  pass the virus for longer than 7 days.

Symptoms can begin about 2 days (but can range from 1 to 4 days)  after the virus enters the body. That means that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. Some people can be infected with the flu virus but have no symptoms. During this time, those people may still spread the virus to others.

Period of Contagiousness

You may be able to pass on flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick.

  • People with flu are most contagious in the first 3-4 days after their illness begins.
  • Some otherwise healthy adults may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick.
  • Some people, especially young children and people with weakened immune systems, might be able to infect others with flu viruses for an even longer time.

Hello Jessup Families,

Throughout the Evers Blvd Construction Project, Jessup is committed to keeping students safe. Please follow posted signage and striping and use the student drop off area on Evers when it is accessible. If you need to use the back-parking lot, remember to park and walk your children to the building. When you stop your vehicle in posted areas and drop your children off, traffic backs up and the busses can’t get through. If the parking lot is full, you may need to park in the neighborhood and walk your children to the school. Do not drop your students off on Bishop. We are noticing students running across the parking lot while cars are driving through.

Also, I respectfully request you be patient and understanding of the staff as they work to ensure your children’s safety. In an effort to help, we are providing supervision on the playground beginning at 8:05 am. Please do not drop your students off at 8:00 am as the staff needs time to check in, get their vests and radios, and get on the playground. Another staff member will be assigned to the southwest area to assist students’ safe crossing. The District will delegate additional SRO coverage and the Cheyenne Police Department will dispatch officers before and after school to help the flow of traffic.

Stay Safe,

Dr. Leiseth

We combine traditions and innovations for a seven-year academic experience that supports our school’s mission and vision and our District’s strategic plan. Our main focus is to provide opportunities for you to gain academic knowledge, skills, and emotional and social support as you commit to your future; commit to working hard, and commit to being responsible. Make a commitment to learn all you can while you are here!

 Jessup teachers are student-centered, caring instructors who make our school an enjoyable place to learn and grow. Our staff has high expectations for all students and they facilitate dynamic lessons and educational experiences to help you reach your highest potential. Our teachers are highly trained professionals who work collaboratively to provide a productive, positive learning environment, and to deliver the highest quality instruction. Included in our top priorities are safety and success, positive behavior, and increased school spirit for all.

We are proud of our academic successes and we appreciate the sustained support provided by our parents, our community members, and our local businesses. We pledge to continue to work hard to make our academic and extracurricular programs even stronger to ensure all students are achieving at high levels and you are prepared for the future.  You deserve the best! Our level of success is determined by the partnerships between our parents, teachers, staff members, students, and the administration. We will keep communication lines open throughout the year; we encourage parents to sign up for Infinite Campus Parent Portal so you can view student progress at any time. We truly believe that involved parents are one of the most important aspects of the educational process. If you are not already, please come by and get involved.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the school our stop by the office. The administration, teachers, and staff are here to help. We are one team! Thank you for trusting us with something as important as your education. We look forward to a wonderful school year together.

With respect and appreciation,
