πŸš™ Oak Street Arrival and Dismissal Procedures

Dear parents/guardians:

Please note that 8:20 am is the earliest time that students can arrive at school. We do not provide supervision for students prior to that time.

Families using the drop off/pick up lane on Oak Street, please pull all the way up towards Wyatt Avenue. We realize that it is easier to drop K-2 students off by their gate and the 3-6 students off by their entrance, but this causes a back-up of vehicles. We need your help to keep our drop off line moving and to keep the Oak Street and East Avenue intersection safe. Please also yield to our safety cadets and crossing guards. As of late, we are having issues with cars blocking the Oak Street crosswalk and residential driveways. If you need to assist your student in getting into and/or out of a car seat, please pull all the way up to the corner of Oak Street and Wyatt Avenue to do so. This allows other cars to safely exit the drop off/pick up lane. The following will not be allowed:



Students are dismissed at 3:35 pm each day. We ask that family members or individuals picking students up to please wait outside of the school gates until the bell rings. We do have recess and other activities scheduled on the playground until the end of the day.

πŸ“‹ Attendance Reminder

This is a reminder that students are expected to attend school every day. Our first bell rings at 8:35 a.m. The school day starts promptly at 8:45 a.m. If your student is not sitting at their seat, ready for the day at that time, they will be marked tardy. Your student will be marked unexcused for the first half of the day if they arrive after 9:20 a.m. without notification. If your student will not be at school, please contact the main office prior to 9:00 a.m. to properly excuse the absence.

All pre-arranged absences should be reported to the main office by phone call, (715) 345-5418, or email ( or

Jefferson will be hosting the first annual Reading Trivia Contest! The date is being finalized but students have been made aware of the contest during their library time and it should be a fun, engaging event.

Please be on the lookout for a Reading Trivia Contest information letter!
