2014-2015 Photo Student & Family Directory

2014-2015 is a Photo Directory year!

If you are new to WWE since the fall of 2012, 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 the student listing, class lists, family contact information, and school contact information, this special directory edition features photos of WWE families photographed at Randall’s in a FREE session. If you are new to WWE, you can view a copy of the 2012 photo directory at Randall’s Photography (7400 Indiana Street).

All photography is done on-site at Randall’s Photography Studio. Portraits will be photographed outside. They will do a short session with each family. Pets are welcome. Posing is limited to one family pose and one of the kids, for each family. A separate portrait session can be scheduled if you have special requests for a particular background or poses. (Call Randall’s studio for session prices.)

After the session, the images will be posted online the day you are photographed. Each family will choose the photo they would like to be printed in the directory and that will be done at no cost to WWE families. In addition, families have the wonderful opportunity to order prints and digital images at a reduced price in. This is an excellent chance to order discounted high-end wall portraits of your family, gifts, and JPEG images for printing Christmas cards.

WWE families who wish to participate in this great program should call Randall’s Photography directly at 303-425-6077 to schedule a session. Call today! The best times will be taken soon. Photo session dates are:

Saturday, August 23rd from 8 a.m. to noon

Sunday, August 24th from 8 a.m. to noon

Monday, August 25th from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m

Tuesday, August 26th from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m

Please note that times are subject to change. If a change in a session is required after you have scheduled with Randall’s, you will be contacted by Randall’s.

Important information from WWE regarding 2014-2015 Registration & Fees for New & Returning Students

The following is taken from the WWE school website.



Beginning on Monday, July 28th, school fee payments for your student can be made online, with no convenience fee, through JeffcoConnect. You may make payments for the 2014-15 school year with your debit or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted).  Although we encourage you to pay school fees online, you can still pay at the school between July 22nd and the start of school on Aug. 18th.

JeffcoConnect is the registration program for all Jefferson County Schools. Every family is required to have an active JeffcoConnect Account.  Each year, every family MUST log into JeffcoConnect, review all of the information (especially phone and email contacts), make necessary changes, and the hit the “SUBMIT” button.  This provides the annual electronic signature required by the state of Colorado.  Please list at least two emergency contacts.


Students completely new to Jefferson County can register on-line but will need to bring a birth certificate, immunization record and proof of residency (utility bill, mortgage statement, lease agreement, purchase contract) to the office.  If you do not have access to a computer, they will be available in the office beginning July 29, 2014. You are also required to make a JeffcoConnect account.  The link is at the bottom of this webpage.  If you have any problems please call the office at 303-982-5649 for assistance.
