Welcome Back to School 2023-2024

Hello Jefferson Families,

We are excited for the 2023-2024 school year to begin!  

  • Please take some time to check out our Welcome Back Packet HERE which is full of important information for the school year.

  • We are happy to welcome Mrs. Courtney Lausin as our shared Assistant Principal this school year!  We wish Mrs. Pasquale well as she takes over as the Principal of Longfellow Elementary.  

  • Plan to fill out the Daily Dismissal Form HERE for every child you have at Jefferson as soon as possible.    

  • Our District is 1:1 with Chromebook devices for every student! Please review the Chromebook Handbook HERE.  Students in grades K-2 will keep their devices at school and students in grades 3-5 will take them back and forth between school and home each day.

  • Our school office now has its own email address [email protected] that you can utilize instead of sending in paper notes with your child.  

  • Having conversations with your child to review school expectations can be very beneficial. HERE are the expectations for the different areas of our school.  If you are looking for a back to school family activity try choosing two areas to discuss with your child. Ask them how they show "PRIDE" in those areas.  You can also see if your child remembers our "PRIDE Promise"! 


Start Dates

  • The First Day of School for students in Grades 1-5 is August 21st.
