Reopening Communication For Jefferson Families

Hybrid Bell Schedule - Starts April 5th


Hi Jefferson Staff and Families,

As many of you know, Jefferson School is proposing a name change to the Board of Education. We recently presented our proposal to the PTO and will present it again to the Board of Education (BOE) within the timeline they establish. The BOE will only accept two name change proposals each year. Falk and Memorial have been proposed already this year, so Jefferson's proposal will occur in September 2021. Attached is the BOE policy and we will keep the Jefferson community abreast of the developments and timelines as we begin the process. 

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Saludos, personal y familias de Jefferson:

Como muchos de ustedes saben, la Escuela Jefferson está proponiendo un cambio de nombre a la Junta de Educación. Recientemente presentamos nuestra propuesta al PTO y la presentaremos nuevamente a la Junta de Educación (BOE, por sus siglas en inglés) dentro del marco de tiempo que ellos establezcan. La Junta de Educación (BOE)  solo aceptará dos propuestas de cambio de nombre cada año. Falk y Memorial ya se han propuesto este año, por lo que la propuesta de Jefferson se producirá en septiembre de 2021. Se adjunta la política de La Junta de Educación (BOE) y mantendremos a la comunidad de Jefferson al tanto de los desarrollos y los plazos a medida que comenzamos el proceso.

Volunteer Tracker Registration (English and Spanish)

When you become a volunteer, your work takes on special significance -- though you are not part of the staff, you do share the same responsibilities of keeping students safe. 

Madison Metropolitan School District (MMSD) and Madison School Community Recreation (MSCR) are using an automated volunteer management program called Volunteer Tracker where you will be able to select schools where you wish to serve and identify activities that you would like to participate in when volunteering. Also, using the Log My Time feature in Volunteer Tracker, you will be amazed at the number of hours that you contribute to schools. Register today in the MMSD/MSCR Volunteer Tracker program! 

Picking Students Up After School

To ensure the safety of all students, there is no pick up of students on the north side of Jefferson (Lussier side). Students must be picked up on the south side of the building (Memorial side). This only applies to the end of the day dismissal. If you are picking up your student for an appointment during the day, please use our new office entrance on the north side. Thank you for helping us. 

Recogida de estudiantes después de las clases

Por razones de seguridad, ya no se puede recoger a los estudiantes en la puerta del lado del norte de Jefferson (al lado del centro Lussier). La recogida de los estudiantes a partir de ahora va a ser en la puerta del lado de Memorial. Esta regla solo vale para el final del dia, despues de que terminen las clases. Si usted tiene que recoger su hijo/a durante el día por razones de cita o algo semejante, por favor utilice la nueva entrada al lado de la oficina. Muchas gracias por su cooperación
