Jefferson Elementary School


Weekly Weber Update

September 7, 2018

Dear Jefferson Families,

I hope you have all had a fantastic week. Tuesday is Patriot Day! Jefferson will show it’s support by wearing red, white and blue on this day. Please remember that Wednesday, September 12th is a student late arrival day; students start their day at 9:45am.

Welcome to our new lead lunchroom supervisor, Mrs. Donna Poppert. She has been a lunchroom supervisor for many years and was very excited to meet our Jefferson students. Thank you also to the parents who have signed up to help volunteer during our lunch/recess time through the PTA.

Please use this link to help determine whether to send your child to school or not when they are not feeling well. Students need to be fever free for 24 hours with no medication and have not vomited or had diarrhea for 24 hours as well before sending them back to school. We want to ensure that all students are well and remain healthy. We have several students who have been recently diagnosed with PANDAS/PANS this year which is an autoimmune disorder. If they are exposed to the strep virus, it can be very impactful to them.  Thank you for your understanding. For more information about PANDAS/PANS, visit

Strong Schools – Stronger Community - As many of you know, the District 205 Referendum will be on the November 6th ballot. 
There will be many opportunities for you to hear more about the facilities plan and ask any questions you may have. Dr. Mary Henderson will be joining us for the September 18th PTA meeting. Dates and details about future meetings will be coming soon.
The Political Action Committee supporting the referendum has asked us to share the information below: The PAC is looking for volunteers who would like to help educate community members about the referendum. There are so many ways that you can help!

If you are interested in being a part of those efforts, please click here to find out how you can get involved.

If you’d like more information, or to contact someone directly, you can email Emily Bastedo (chair) and Courtenae Trautmann (volunteer coordinator) at
