USPS Helps Deliver…Education?

Jefferson County Public Schools mails computers to students

USPS Helps Deliver Education

LOUISVILLE, KY – Letter carriers in Louisville and Jefferson County are delivering Chromebooks to students without computer access.

Recently, Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) began mailing approximately 20,000 Chromebooks to students who were identified as needing computer access. During the current pandemic and subsequent school closings, many students have difficulty keeping up with their assignments without a computer in the home. USPS Priority Mail provided an easy solution to remedy this situation.

The Postal Service is recognized as an essential service and is honored to help JCPS bridge a gap for students in need.

The Kentuckiana District serves ZIP Codes 400-409, 411-427 in Kentucky and 471, 476-477 in southern Indiana.

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses, and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
