Good News About Accelerated Reader!
The Renaissance AR program is now available from home! Students simply log onto ClassLink, log into their Renaissance account, and take the quiz just like at school!
Please keep in mind that, though this is not a standardized test, good test-taking rules still apply. Students should not use help from adults or others or look through the book to find answers. While we are in quarantine mode, integrity will count more than ever!
The clock is still ticking on the Million Words contest! Students who pass ARs for one million words or more are automatically entered into the drawing on the last day of school for amazing prizes purchased by our amazing PTO!
READ, READ, READ Jessup Jaguars!

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.
