Visitors  - Jefferson Academy is a closed campus.  Visitors must check in through the Raptor system with a current ID at the school office before continuing on campus and are expected to wear a name badge while in the school building. Parents coming into the building in the morning must also check in at the office.  An appointment is necessary to meet with a teacher.  Please use the main office entrance only.


EnrollJeffco - Beginning December 5, 2023, current families will receive an email from the district requesting that you confirm your spot at JA, for the next school year, or you will have the opportunity to apply to other schools.  Students currently enrolled at JA will automatically be enrolled for the 2024-2025 school year unless you apply to another school and accept the offer.  Current families with incoming Kindergarten students or if you have other siblings, not currently enrolled at JA, and you’re interested in enrolling (Kindergarten through 12th grade) you should apply during the first round, December 5, 2023 - January 12, 2024. These students will receive priority.  This is also the time for any new families to apply. For questions or concerns, please contact the office, 303-438-1011.  6th grade students will automatically be enrolled into 7th grade at our secondary school, and should also confirm that you’re returning to JA.

3rd Grade Music Program - Tuesday, December 5 at 6:30 p.m. Please help your student memorize their speaking part for the Toys Musical.  Singing parts and dancers will practice with Mrs. Ballard during school hours.  Also, check the costume list that was sent home several weeks ago for what your student needs to wear for their specific part.  Students will need to be here at 6:00 p.m. and be dropped off at the main entrance on the west side of the school.  They will go directly to Music/CKC/Art/SEL classrooms to get ready for the show.  Doors will open at 6:15 p.m. for families to enter the gym.

If you have a special need due to a disability, plan to attend this event, and wish to request accommodations in order to participate, contact Shelly Cohen, 720-728- 6162.  Please call in advance so that appropriate arrangements for reasonable accommodations may be made.

Classroom Holiday Parties will  take place on December 20 from 10-11:00 a.m.  Only four previously  signed up volunteers per classroom will be allowed during the party, and please do not bring siblings.  If you are planning on dropping off items for the party, please bring these to the main office and we will deliver them directly to the classroom.
