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.
