School Uniforms:

Jefferson Elementary School is proud of it’s Uniform Policy. Our school rewards students who come to school dressed in the school uniform once a month. If a child misses a day of dress, they will not participate in the monthly reward. We ask that we please send our students everyday in the school uniform. This year we will only accept khaki pants, short, skirts, or leggings and navy blue shirts or navy blue polo’s. The school logo is not important. Just the Khaki bottom and Navy Blue Top. Any jacket or sweater is find as long as they meets the dress code requirements.

Security Update:

The safety of our students and families is very important to us. In the month of September we will have additional staff at the gates in the morning and during dismissal. Reminder that parents are not allowed to drop off or pick up children inside the parking lot. Parents are asked to please park on the street or neighboring streets and walk to the school. Please be on the lookout for a separate letter explaining our drop off and pick procedures at Jefferson School. Thank you in advance for your help and support for the safety of our kids.

Parent Volunteers Needed:

Our School is a better place when we have parent volunteers. If you would like to help the school, please come to the office and complete a parent volunteer application. Our Parent Liaison will follow up with times that we need PV at the school. All Parent Volunteers need to enter campus through the front office to sign in every time.

Breakfast Participation:

In the month of September we will ask all of our students to take a breakfast in the morning. High Participation Rate gives 100% of our families free lunch for all our kids. If you feed your children at home, please as your child to place the breakfast in their backpack (NOT THE MILK) and eat it at recess.

Attendance Goal is 98%

At Jefferson, our monthly goal of attendance is 98%. Attendance matters at Jefferson Elementary School. We are progress monitoring our monthly attendance because at Jefferson School, we believe that every child in every classroom can and will achieve success. All students who earned perfect attendance for the month receive a Brag Tag for their back pack for each month that they come to school 100% of the time. We also will award the class with the highest percentage of Perfect Attendance with an ice cream party and a picture with our Jaguar Mascot!
