Principal Notes - February 23, 2021

THANK YOU FOR PIVOTING TO 100% REMOTE LEARNING Our building is under construction as we speak as ServPro is doing their best to restore the walls in time for returning to in-person learning next week.  We appreciate your patience as we work through this latest issue.  Special thanks and recognition go to our Facilities Team for their quick response which saved us from a greater disaster.

ENROLL JEFFCO -- CENTRAL REMOTE LEARNING OPTION -- DO NOT COMPLETE IT  In the next few days, you may receive survey information or notification from Jeffco Public Schools about selecting a remote learning option for the 2021-2022 school year.  This option is centralized through the district and your student will be enrolled in another school with district teachers.  Please do NOT complete the survey indicating that you would like remote learning for next year if you intend to remain at Jefferson Academy.  If you confirm that you will be enrolling in 100% remote learning through Enroll Jeffco, then you will be enrolled in a different school and lose your spot at JA.  At this point, we do not have a way of stopping this selection.  Jefferson Academy may be offering a remote learning option next year and will send our own form and survey.  So, please do nothing at this time (other than answering JA-specific surveys) unless your intent is to enroll at a different school.

WE NEED YOUR INPUT AS WE PLAN FOR Q4 -- COMPLETE THIS SURVEY  We need to understand our community needs and interests as we plan for the final quarter of the year.  Please take a few minutes to complete our Q4 Interest Survey so that we know what your preferences for learning are for your student.  Please complete this survey for each student in your household.  The purpose of this survey is to gather your intentions for the remainder of the year and for next year.  The answers you provide are for survey purposes only and do not affect your student’s actual learning option.  We will send out a request form next week for families that wish to actually change their learning option for Q4.

SAVE THE DATE -- PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES -- THURSDAY, MARCH 11  This year, conferences will once again be held virtually.  We will send out a document next week with all of the teachers’ links to sign up for conference times.  We are encouraging families to set up conferences if a concern about their academics exists.  If your student is doing well

NOT RETURNING TO JA? EMAIL ANNE LEONI  While we wish that every family would choose to remain at JA, we also understand that some families must find another school home to better suit their student.  Please let us know if you are moving to another school for the 2021-2022 school year so that we can plan accordingly.  Please email Anne Leoni ( if you are planning to enroll your student at another school next year.

Have a great week, Jags!
