Jefferson Elementary School


Weekly Weber Update

February 1, 2019

Dear Jefferson Families,

What a crazy weather week! It was great to see everyone back today and working hard. Thank you again for your patience as we get the students into the building in a safe and orderly fashion. Please know that when the weather is bad and it takes us a little longer to get in, we hold off on attendance until all of the cars have been cleared, so students are not tardy.

There is a student late arrival on Wednesday, February 6th. Students will begin school at 9:45am. Morning Kindergarten will dismiss at 11:55am and afternoon kindergarten begins at 12:55pm.

Due to the weather, we had to postpone our Family Math Night. The PTA is currently looking at a new date and will communicate that with families as soon as we have everything planned.

Our students do go outside unless the temperature or wind chill is below zero degrees or it is too icy. We have had several students who have not had hats and gloves when they go outside. Students also need snow pants and boots in order to play in the snow in the field and go on the playground.

REACH letters will be emailed to families of students in grades 2 and 5 that will qualify for next year in the REACH program. Application for REACH Appeal is currently live and will close after February 15, 2019. The appeal is open for students in grades 3-7.
