District-wide change to Hybrid Schedule Begins Tuesday, 1/19
1/17/2021 8:34 pm
Dear Jefferson Families,
I hope that this email finds you well. Below is a link to our newsletter, The Jefferson
Additionally, next we will join the entire district by moving to the hybrid schedule. This will mean that your child's virtual school day will be from 8:05-12:05. Students will return at the invitation of their teachers for small groups and conferences between 1:50-3:05. Your child's teacher will be able to give you the specific details about how the schedule will be adjusted in their classroom.
Furthermore, if your child will be in a hybrid cohort, it is important that you complete the health screening verification, that can be found in the forms section of the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If you are having difficulty with accessing the Parent Portal, you can use the link below for directions on accessing it. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Mr. Rivera firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing you all a relaxing weekend!
Kim Hutchinson, Principal
