As you know, Governor Polis announced yesterday that school buildings will be closed at least through April 30. Jeffco Public Schools recognizes this directive and will continue with our Remote Learning and Work Plan through April 30. Jeffco Public Schools continues to monitor this situation and will make announcements related to any plans for the extension of remote learning and end-of-year events at a later date.
New Student Enrollment is Open During Remote Learning
While Jeffco has transitioned to remote learning for all students, we are still accepting enrollments and registering new students who want to attend school in Jeffco for this school year (2019 - 20) and next (2020 - 21). We are aware there are families living in Jefferson County who attend a school outside of Jeffco Public Schools with limited access to comprehensive remote learning options.
Families who wish to enroll in Jeffco Public Schools should email Enrollment Services directly to complete the preliminary steps, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 303.982.9878.
