SCHOOL STARTS TUESDAY, AUGUST 14  All students start school on Tuesday, August 14.  Students will attend from 8:15am to 11:35am.  No lunch will be served.  Students will attend all four blocks.  It is a GOLD day for Junior High students.

DROP-OFF & PICKUP INFORMATION
  For parents and drivers, click here to view the traffic map. Please follow this traffic pattern to make the morning and afternoon go smoothly.  The best time to drop students off is between 7:50am and 8:00am.  The best time to pickup students is 3:25pm to 3:35pm.  By using these times, you may be able to avoid much of the high traffic congestion.  Above all else, please come through the process with your patience and kindness.  We will have staff outside directing traffic for the first two weeks to help establish the pattern.

BREAKFAST AND LUNCH SERVED BEGINNING WEDNESDAY, AUG 15  Beginning on our first full day of school, Wednesday, August 15, breakfast and lunch will be served.  Student breakfast is $2.10 and lunch is $3.35.  Please click here to see the menu.  As a change in policy, we will continue to serve meals to students with a negative balance in their account.  Parents/guardians will be contacted for collection of any debt incurred by the student.

JEFFCO CONNECT AND INFINITE CAMPUS RESET STEPS

Just as a reminder, if you have any trouble accessing your Jeffco Connect or Infinite Campus account, there is a "forgot password" link available on the Jeffco Connect login page that will allow you to reset your account as necessary throughout the year.

Please understand our school district conducts weekly updates that may affect your access to your accounts.  With this understanding, you will want to ensure you have your security questions and answers updated on Jeffco Connect so that you can reset your account whenever required to regain your access to your account.

If you have any questions with regards to resetting your account, feel free to contact Mrs. Jone at jjone@jajags.com.

STILL LOOKING FOR SCHOOL SUPPLY LISTS?  High School students will receive their school supply lists from their individual teachers.  Junior High School students have a supply list that can be found on the Counseling page or click HERE.
