Jefferson County School stands in solidarity with the families, children, educators, and communities in Uvalde, Texas, in the wake of the tragic events of May 24th, 2022. There are no words that can restore what has been taken, not only from those individuals but from all of us. Everyone at Jefferson Schools is here for the community as we support our children together. You can find a list of resources on speaking to children about this difficult topic following this link: https://bit.ly/39SwBoW. We will also have counseling staff available for any of our students or staff who need that support. Please join us as we continue our end-of-year student celebrations and honors while remaining mindful of the impacted communities and our solemn responsibility for the safety and wellbeing of our children.
Good morning. As we all awaken with heavy hearts, I want to reassure you that we will maintain all safety protocols at South Jefferson Elementary, while continuing to celebrate the end of the year with as much “normalcy” for our students, as possible. I ask that you continue to support protocols at the school, including the front door policy, as it is only designed to maintain the safety of our students and staff. Our intention is never intended to make you feel unwelcome; it is strictly designed to maintain the safety of our 435 students and 50 staff members. We are heartbroken today, but will support your children and keep them safe. 💜💛 Thank you, Ms. Mahoney

Calling all girls in grades K-5! Here’s a cool summer opportunity to engage in Twilight Camp from July 5 - 7th. Sounds like fun!
Due to a high probability of rain, we are moving Field Day from tomorrow (Tuesday) to Wednesday, May 25th.
To our Kindergarten Families: In twenty-five years at South Jefferson, we have never had to do this, but we are going to reschedule our Kindergarten Program scheduled for this evening (Monday, May 23rd). We currently have 22 kindergarten students absent today, with a couple more leaving early, due to illness. We cannot, in good faith, push these little ones to participate in this special event, feeling sick or possibly infecting others. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I must do what is right for ALL of the kindergarten class and their families. We are rescheduling our event for Wednesday, May 25th, at 6:00 p.m. in the hopes that everyone will feel better and have time to get well. IF your child is not feeling well, PLEASE do not send them to school. Give them the extra time to be 100% so that we can all enjoy this memorable occasion. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com. I am looking forward to seeing ALL of those sweet faces on Wednesday evening. Sincerely, Ms. Mahoney Principal
Summer Experience registration ends on Friday, May 20th. If interested, please check out information on JCSWV.org. Thank you, Ms. Mahoney
The rain will not stop us from having an awesome Friday! Washington High School Vo-Ag students, under the direction of Mrs. Katlin Grantham, visited us today to teach us about their animals and farming in America. We loved it! Thank you!!!
Thank you, Allison Dodson, Miss Jefferson County Teen USA (and former SJES Roadrunner) for visiting with us and reading stories about kindness, being true to yourself and liking yourself, just as you are! We had a wonderful time with you.

Thank you to everyone that supported our Fun Run at South Jefferson! Our students really put their hearts and energy into having fun and running for a good cause! I’m happy to report that our students ran 3,616 laps as a school and raised over $3,400 for Relay for Life. What an accomplishment! Super proud of our students and grateful to our community. (Freeze Pops after the run helped to cool our athletes down!) 😉
