Jefferson Elementary School 

Dear Parents and Students,
I would like to welcome you back for the 2016-2017 school year. I hope your summer was relaxing and you are eager and ready for the beginning of the new school year. I anticipate an exciting year as we work to foster a culture of learning and inquiry. I feel extremely fortunate to be working with such an exceptional group of students, families, teachers, and staff members.
Orientation will be Monday, August 8th, from 4:00-6:00pm. Classroom assignments will be posted around the school so you can find your student’s teacher. This is a great time to reconnect with former classmates, make new friends, and meet your new teacher.
I also look forward to meeting our students and their families at our Open House on Tuesday, August 23rd, from 6:00-8:00 pm. This will be a time to acquaint yourself with the curriculum your student will be using, learn about Kagan instructional strategies, set up a conference with your student’s teacher, and ask questions.
School begins on Wednesday, August 10, 2016 at 7:45 am and classroom assignments again will be posted around the campus that morning. Breakfast is served in the cafeteria starting at 7:00 am. Students must report to the cafeteria when they arrive on campus. Students are tardy at 7:45 am so please ensure they are here on time each day. Dismissal will be at 3:15 pm.
If you need to change how your student goes home, please call Mrs. Seaton in the front office before 2:30 each day. We understand that emergencies may arise from time to time and we will work with you, however, early notification ensures your student’s safety and that they go home in the manner you intended.
Our office staff has worked diligently to prepare a welcome packet for our families. In an effort to reduce our impact on the environment, many of the resources have been posted on our website. Please take a moment to review the items and make note of the events on our school calendar. Our school calendar can be downloaded to your favorite device for easy reference.
Packets should be filed out and returned to your classroom teacher no later than Monday, August 15th. I look forward to continuing our work together as we support the Jefferson County School community and continue working towards our goal of excellence!
Mr. Key
