Student Diagnosed with Whooping Cough at JLHS

The district was notified today that a student at Jackson Liberty High School has tested positive for pertussis, which is commonly known as whooping cough. The student affected has received the appropriate treatment and is no longer contagious.

Pertussis is a highly contagious disease that is spread through the air by a cough or a sneeze. It begins with cold symptoms and a cough, which become much worse over 1-2 weeks. Symptoms usually include a long series of coughing fits followed by a “whooping’’ noise. However, older children, adults and very young infants may not develop the whoop. There is generally only a slight fever.

We have been in contact with the Ocean County Health Department and we will continue to monitor the situation in our district. If additional cases arise, we will again notify parents.

We encourage you to read the district letter below, which includes important health information for parents and staff that can be used to monitor your own health and the health of your children.

Jackson School District Curriculum Online


We are proud to announce the launch of a new website that has a searchable database of the approved curriculum in the Jackson School District.

This resource, known as the
Rubicon Atlas Curriculum Program, provides public access to our most up-to-date curriculum, including overviews of content by grade level, unit summaries and the essential questions students are expected to be able to answer upon completion of each unit.

To get started, click on the icon above. Select the “Browse’’ tab to see a list of courses, or begin searching by grade and subject on your own.

For now, the site features our complete curriculum in the areas of English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Physical Education and Health and World Language. This site will be a living database that will be updated as we update our curriculum to be fully aligned with state standards. (e.g. Science, Music, Art, Business, Technology).

We are proud of our curriculum and we hope you will enjoy being able to take a first-hand look at all the ways we strive to help students excel.

From The Principal


Dear Rosenauer Parents,

This past week we welcomed “The Cat in the Hat”.  Our entire school benefitted from the assemblies and the students really seemed to enjoy the presentation.  Thank you to the PTA for making the necessary arrangements and paying for the program.

Just a reminder to parents that all students have access to both the Raz-Kid and the IXL Math online sites.  Both these programs are accessible to students at home and are paid for by the PTA.  Please utilize these resources to help reinforce your child's educational skills in the areas of literacy and math.

“Give a Kid a Smile Day” is Friday, Feb. 5.  Check out our E-BackPack for details.   It’s a great opportunity to have your child’s teeth checked for free!

A special thank you to all the families that donated to the “Souper Bowl” food drive that took place over the past few weeks.  The Broncos were voted to win the Super Bowl over the weekend.  The real winner is the Jackson Food Pantry.  They will receive 8 boxes of canned goods thanks to your generosity.

Lastly, thank you to Mr. Christopher Carroll.  Chris had won the Principal for a Day raffle earlier this year and Friday was his day to serve as acting principal.  Mr. Carroll assisted me in announcements, taking room temperatures, delivering birthday cards to students from the PTA, and will help supervise dismissal.  It will be challenging based on the weather but his assistance will be very helpful.

As always have a wonderful  weekend and enjoy the Super Bowl!

Mr. Polakowski & Chris Carroll

FYI for Parents:  District Evaluating New Approach to Active Shooter Drills

The district wants to let our parents know we are evaluating a new approach to how we could handle an active shooter situation. This approach or plan, which has gained national attention, is referred to as A.L.I.C.E., and includes additional strategies and options we may decide to employ in our district. Please take a moment to read a letter from the superintendent about this approach and about a pilot training program we are conducting. Please keep in mind, however, there are currently NO changes taking place in our district procedures. The letter is also available on the district website.
