Hello NJES Families, Please remember that today is a 3-hour early dismissal. In order to ensure the safety of our students and families, we dismiss in shifts. Our pre-k students and families that are car riders are in our first dismissal group at 11:55 and 12:00. We ask that parents of students in grades K-5 do NOT arrive to the parking lot any earlier than 12:20 so that we can safely accommodate all families. When arriving to the parking lot, please fill the car loop stopping at the light post to ensure safe parking lot entry and exit. Excess cars are to follow the arrows in the left lane and beginning filling the second row and subsequently the third row of parking. Please park facing the school to help with the traffic flow. Upon entering the parking lot, please check to see if these rows have cars in them. Once either of these rows have cars in them, please proceed to these rows even if traffic is moving in the loop. This allows us to ensure we dismiss in the order of arrival and dismiss our students to their appropriate places in the rotation. A staff member will assist your child. Please remain your vehicles to ensure safety and efficiency. Thank you all so much for working with us to keep our school family safe. Sincerely, Ms. Johnson

Hello NJES Families, Due to a higher than expected response for tomorrow's Read-or-Treat event, it is necessary for us to make some slight modifications to the event. We are asking that families with the last name A-L attend the event from 5 p.m. - 6 p.m. and that families with the last name M-Z attend from 6:10 p.m. - 7:10 p.m. If your family contains students whose names fall into both categories, you may pick the time block that works best for your family. We understand that the request is coming last minute so if your family needs to attend in the alternative time slot, that is permissible. Our goal is to provide as much space for physical distancing as possible. Additionally, since we are expecting a substantial turnout for our Read-or-Treat event we are requesting that families adhere to the following safety protocols regardless of the location of our event's setting: maintain physical distancing from other families, wear a mask and keep it pulled up anytime you are at a station or within 6 feet of other families, maintain 6 feet or more of space between other families while eating, utilize hand sanitizer at each station and refrain from attending the event if you are experiencing any COVID like symptoms, have a fever, do not feel well or have been exposed to COVID within the past 10 days. We at NJES thank you in advance for partnering with us to keep all of our NJES students, families and staff safe and free from harm.

Hello, this is your principal Ms. Johnson with a very important message regarding our first Friday three-hour early dismissal. Tomorrow, Friday, October 15th, North Jefferson Elementary School will operate on a three hour early dismissal schedule. Pre-K students will be dismissed at 11:55 AM for Ms. Underwood’s class and 12:00 PM for Ms. Allen’s class. Students in grades K through five will be dismissed at 12:25 for walkers and car riders and 12:30 for students riding the bus. We respectfully ask that no parent of any student in grades K through five arrive for car rider pick up prior to 12:20 PM. Early arrivals will prevent our pre-K parents from safely picking up their students and exiting the parking lot without complication. Again we very respectfully ask that parents of all students in grades K through five wait to enter the parking lot for car rider pick up until after 12:20 PM. Our official car rider dismissal time will begin at 12:25 PM. Picture day for tomorrow has been canceled and rescheduled for November 4th to allow enough time for every student to have their photo taken. Thank you so much for your support and willingness to support our Jefferson County School students and staff.

Staffing shortages are impacting school systems across the country. For Jefferson County Schools (JCS), the shortages have significantly affected our staff time to complete critical behind-the-scenes work that goes into sustaining excellence in teaching and learning. Beginning October 15th, Jefferson County Schools will dismiss students 1/2 day every Friday. Staff will spend 3 hours completing all non-student supervision work (planning, SAT/IEP meetings, creating instructional materials, deep cleaning, etc). A full explanation of the factors leading to this change and expectations for staff in using this time can be found in the “Sustaining Excellence Plan” on the JCS website https://5il.co/101uz
