School Bulletin     October 8, 2021

Dear JA Families,

Please read the important information below:

Parent/Teacher Conferences:

We have done so well in minimizing the spread of COVID at our school.  We are asking  parents to enter the building from specific areas to minimize large groups. Please wear a mask and limit gatherings.

Kindergarten, 4th and 5th grades- Enter through the south doors.

First and Second Grade- Enter through the front doors on East side
Third Grade- Please enter at the north entrance at the end of the primary wing. 

Sixth Grade- Enter through the west doors near the soccer field

ELL Tutor:

We are pleased to welcome Kathleen Bedow as our new ELL Tutor.  She has several years of experience in Jeffco and is already working on her caseload.  We are very fortunate to have her here.

Educational Assistant

Please welcome Jill Hogan as our new Educational Assistant for Mrs. Christine Westbrook in second grade.  She is already doing amazing work with our students!
School BEGINS at 8:00 a.m.   Students need to be in the classroom by 7:55 a.m. and ready for classroom instruction at 8:00 a.m.  The exterior doors are locked at 8:00 a.m. Students arriving after the morning bell at 8:00 are tardy and must be signed in at the office.  

Masks - Students must come prepared every day with a mask. We have been handing out over 25 masks daily. Should your student come to school without a mask, you may be contacted to bring them a mask. 

Our character focus for this month is RESPONSIBILITY: To take action and understand how our choices affect others. Please click on the links below to access the parent letters to see how you can engage as PurposeFull Families!
