HS Panther News

We appreciate our involved parents and community members. We also enjoy broadcasting our latest news and information here on our News page where we will chronicle school activities and student achievements and publish announcements. We’ll also offer helpful resources and information. So check back often; we’ll update this page regularly.

April Events and Athletics Canceled

All events and athletics planned for the month of April have now been canceled. This will include the Jennings County High School musical, FFA banquet, Key Club banquet, academic honors dinner, prom, Jennings County High School job fair, senior art presentations, and National Honor Society induction ceremony.

At this time these events are canceled, and we will continue to monitor this situation and will update everyone when we know more going forward. With the current CDC recommendation to not have any events over 50 people until May 8, rescheduling some of these events will be difficult.

We will wait until after spring break to see where the guidance is on the virus going forward and then will reach out to sponsors of these events about possible rescheduling in May. Please remember that it will be difficult to reschedule everything in May in the short amount of time available. This is a very unfortunate situation for our kids, and they are losing several of the key events during their senior year.
