    To the Jefferson Davis County School District Community:

           I want each of you to know that I am so very proud of you, our school district and our community.
    Together, we have faced the constant health threat from the COVID-19 pandemic, the associated
    learning loss due to school closings and virtual learning, and the discomfort of being temporarily
    displaced due to school remodeling and facility upgrades. Since March, 2020 we have learned so much
    about endurance and perseverance. Yet through it all, the residents and stakeholders of the Jefferson
    Davis County School District, have worked tirelessly to make things better for the students we serve. For
    that reason and many more, I pen this letter to express my deepest and most sincere gratitude.
    Like many school districts across the world, the nation, and our state, we have many obstacles to
    overcome in the upcoming months to keep our students and staff safe, to ensure that students’ social,
    emotional and behavioral needs are addressed, and to improve students’ academic achievement.
    However, by putting Children First and working together with positive attitudes, high expectations, and
    accountability – the Jaguarway- we will be victorious!
    I wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

    Ike Haynes
