New Registration Information!

 Welcome to the 2016/2017 School Year!

West Woods Elementary is going green.

Everything you need to register can be completed online!

 

JeffcoConnect is the registration program for all Jefferson County Schools.  Every family is required to have an active JeffcoConnect account.  Each Jeffco student can be added to the same parental account.

 

Each year every family must log into JeffcoConnect, review all the information, make necessary changes, then hit the “Submit” button.  This provides the annual electronic signature required by the state of Colorado.  If you have problems creating an account, or need a reminder of your user name or password, please call the office at 303-982-5649.

 

There are 3 total steps to registration.  Please complete all the steps prior to starting school.

 

STEP 1 – Update your household information on JeffcoConnect

 

  •  JeffcoConnect is an online student information program that needs to be updated, saved, and submitted.
  • Follow all directions carefully!
  • Once in the system, click on your student and review ALL 7 tabs on the left side.  Use “Save” between each tab and “SUBMIT” when all 7 tabs are reviewed and updated.  The school can’t access your changes until you hit “SUBMIT”.  You must do this series of steps for EACH student who attends Jeffco Public Schools in your household.  PLEASE make sure that you are reviewing each contact and making corrections to how you would like to be contacted by School Messenger or in an emergency situation.
  • A tab has been added called “Agreements” where you can view and sign the Code of Conduct and the Safe Use of the Internet form

 

STEP 2Pay your fees using Jeffco Student Payment through Jeffco Connect –             

 

  •  You may pay your West Woods classroom fees and the bus fees if applicable beginning on Monday, August 1, 2016.
  • You may also pay your fees at West Woods Elementary beginning August 1, 2016.  We accept cash and checks.
  • To access Jeffco Student Fee Payment please log into your JeffcoConnect account.  Once you are logged into JeffcoConnect, click on the “Jeffco Student Fee Payment” link on the left side.  DO NOT select a student’s name, because if you do you will not be able to view the Student Fee Payment link.
  • Please be aware when paying fees, the system defaults to pay everything.  Uncheck fees you do not want to pay until they are due. For example Kindergarten tuition due monthly or Outdoor Lab or Bus fees.
  • 6th grade students:  The Outdoor Lab fee of $350.00 will NOT be due until February 24, 2017. Please ask the West Woods office about the Outdoor Lab Foundation Card Program or visit their website at www.outdoorlabfoundation.org.
  • For 6th grade parents who ARE participating in the Lab Card program, DO NOT pay outdoor lab fee on-line.  The school will contact you with your amount to pay before the students go to Lab school.

 

STEP 3 – Make a deposit into Meal Pay Using JeffcoConnect    

  • Lunch is served for All-Day Kindergarten through 6th grade.  The cost for a hot lunch is $2.75
  • You may also make deposits at the school cafeteria or the school office.

Volunteers Needed – Help Make West Woods Elementary Beautiful!

We are excited to share details about the upcoming volunteer Blacktop Stencil Painting project, a part of Phase 2 of the Outdoor Learning Environment project.
The blacktop was given a fresh seal-coat a couple weeks ago and is ready for us to paint some new, colorful, fun stencils!
DATE: Friday August 12th and Saturday August 13th
TIME: Each day we will paint 7am-11am. We hope this will allow for the coolest, driest part of the day.
We have split each day into 2 shifts, but please come when it works best for you!
If possible, we are asking that this is an adult only project. We have been told by schools just finishing this process that while kids want to help, it is best and most efficient if just the adults do the painting. We plan to have the students help with many other Outdoor Learning Environment projects in the future.
Thank you so much for helping beautify and expand the learning and play opportunities at West Woods!

Important Message From Danette Brown, Clinic Aide

Please plan to drop off ALL non-expired medications and ALL parent and physician signed paperwork to the school clinic either August 16th from 11 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. or August 17th from 8 a.m. – 3 p.m.  Danette will not be in the clinic on the first day of school August 18th because she will be moving her son to college, so it would be very helpful to have everything in place prior to this day.  If you need copies of blank Medical Agreement paperwork or Asthma and Allergy plans, they can be found on WWE website under “Parent” tab/ scroll down to Health Forms. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Danette or the front office.

2016-2017 is a Photo Directory year!

If you are new to WWE since the fall of 2014, then you may not be familiar with our biannual Photo Directory produced by Randall’s Photography.  But if you are a seasoned WWE family, then you know how fantastic this directory is! In addition to class lists and school contact information, this special directory edition features photos of WWE families photographed at Randall’s in a FREE session. Directories will be offered this year for a small fee of $10 or FREE with a PTSA membership!

See our Directory page for more information on the directory. Meanwhile, mark your calendars! Online scheduling at www.randallsphoto.com will be available in July. West Woods families can also call Randall’s Photography, 303-425-6077, directly to schedule a session. Photos are taken in a first-come, first photographed manner. The time is more of a guideline than an actual appointment, so if you are early, or running late, just come on over to Randall’s! Photo session dates are (times are subject to change):

Friday, August 26th from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Saturday, August 27th from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
