Starting The School Day
Our school day at Jefferson begins at 8:15! Students are allowed in the building at 7:30 and must wait in the cafeteria until they are dismissed at 8:00. While students are waiting they may take advantage of the free breakfast! Dismissal times are as follows: PreK and Kinder at 3:15, 1st through 3rd at 3:20, 4th through 6th at 3:30. PreK and Kinder students are picked up in the back parking lot by the gym. ALL other students are released in the front. Please do not leave your car unattended in the circle drive during dismissal. This causes a HUGE traffic issue. 
Gifted and Talented Testing Information
The window for Gifted/Talented nominations for Kindergarten students is Oct. 1-30. Any parent or teacher who believes a kindergartener exhibits characteristics of a gifted student may nominate that child to be tested for the Gifted & Talented program.  If you would like a nomination form, please come to the front office or ask your child’s kindergarten teacher any time during the October 1-30 window.  All nominations MUST be received by October 30.  No late nominations will be accepted.
