Kindergarten Registration

Thank you to all the families that registered online in the spring! We missed having the chance to meet you in person. We still need a little more help to ensure all of your information is accurate. Please complete the following and return it to the main office by August 6th.
  • Completed registration packet - Please see attachment or pick up a printed copy at Jefferson
  • A copy of your child's certified birth certificate
  • A copy of your child's immunization records

  • Proof of residency (This is only required for families new to Jefferson. If older siblings attend Jefferson, this is not needed.)

We are happy to make any necessary copies here at the office!

School Supply Lists

Copies of lists are at many local stores, but here's one you can print and take with you!

Bus Information for Call In Registration

Parents, please call the Bus Barn at 208-324-4426 to confirm the bus for your children this year. This will be important information for us to update during call in registration August 10-12.

Meet the Teacher Events

We look forward to meeting with all of you and answering your questions, but due to COVID procedures, we won't be able to have our typical Meet Your Teacher Open House. Instead, teachers will be scheduling GoogleMeets to answer families questions. After Call-In Registration on August 10-12, your child's teacher will reach out to you to set up a time on August 20th for you to join a GoogleMeet. If you have not received a time and link by August 16th, please reach out to us at the office or the teacher by email. Student Handbooks and Registration packets will be sent home on the first day of school and we ask that you complete those and return them to school by Friday, August 28th.

Zonar ZPass +

Students carry a small card that automatically logs their entry or exit when they pass the scanner on the school bus. The information is then instantly and securely available to you. Notifications can also be sent directly to your computer or to your cell phone via text message. Z Pass+ brings you a whole new level of assurance. Knowing when and where your child gets on and off the bus gives you added peace of mind and makes it easier for you to plan your day. Click here to learn how to sign up.

BoxTops for Education

We will continue to collect box tops from General Mills products again this year. General Mills’ will make a 10¢ cash donation to the school for each specially marked box top submitted.
