JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - As the City of Jackson makes progress in restoring water pressure across the city, several schools are able to open in the Jackson Public School District.

The District said they are beginning to see an improvement in schools previously with low or no water pressure.

There are 19 schools with adequate water pressure that will return to in-person learning on Tuesday, March 2. Schools that will be open Tuesday, March 2 include:

1. Baker Elementary

2. Bates Elementary

ALL OTHER JPS SCHOOLS WILL CONTINUE VIRTUAL LEARNING ONLY UNTIL THE WATER PRESSURE HAS IMPROVED.

Clean water will be made available for those at the reopening schools. Staff members continue to monitor the water pressure at all schools and we will adjust our plans as needed.

Meals will be delivered by bus at the normal times and drop-off locations (https://bit.ly/3uegMyG). Parents may also pick up meals from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at any of the schools reopening.
