Jefferson Back to School Information

Welcome back to school Jefferson!

We are so excited to begin the 2022 - 2023 school year! Please take a few minutes to read through the following information.


Make sure that your child is registered for the 2022 - 2023 school year. This is very important especially if your family is in need of transportation. Registration can be done through the district website at the following link: School Registration

Breakfast begins at 8:00 a.m.

Breakfast is free for ALL students! Students who would like to eat breakfast can be dropped off beginning at 8:00 a.m. After eating breakfast, students will go outside and line-up in their designated grade-level area. 

School begins at 8:30 a.m.

There is supervision for students not eating breakfast beginning at 8:15 a.m. Students will go right to their designated grade-level area to line-up. The playground is not an option before school. The school bell rings at 8:30 a.m. 

Arrival Procedures

Our number one priority during student arrival is to keep all of our Jefferson students safe. Please review our Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures and Parking Lot Map


Holland Public Schools and Jefferson use the Remind App. to send out important information about school, events and cancellations. Please take a couple minutes to make sure that you are connected to Remind and that the contact information for your account is correct. Join the Jefferson Remind list at this link: Sign up for Remind HERE.

Lunch Forms

Please be sure to fill out the online lunch form or the paper copy that is available in the Jefferson main office. We would like All families to fill out the form, as it helps determine the funding Jefferson gets towards school lunches. Thank you!

Class Lists

Class lists will be posted on the front doors on Friday, August 19 at 6:00 PM. Please know that a lot of thought and consideration for each child goes into the making of these lists. 

Open House

Our Jefferson Open House is on Monday, August 22 from 4:00 - 6:00 PM. This is the time for you and your child(ren) to come meet the teachers and see the classrooms! There will also be quite a few community partners here to check-out. Please leave time to stop by the cafeteria and see what extra support and programs are available to our students and families this year!

*If you are in Mrs. Updegraff’s class, she will only be in the building from 4-5:30. 

We are looking forward to partnering with our amazing Jefferson families this school year!  Thank you for all that you do each and every day to help our children be the best that they can be at school. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
