Jeffco Connect – The District’s new online student information system
With the introduction of Jeffco Connect, parents from all schools will be able to complete the student information from any computer with internet access using their parent portal IDs and password. If emergency contact information for the student changes, or parents need to temporarily designate a new contact person, all they have to do is log on to their account online and change the information. The log on will be available on the district website’s Parent Portal page, and links can also be added to school websites.
Please access the Jeffco Connect link on Peiffer’s homepage (www.jeffco.k12.co.us/elem/peiffer) for
• Registration checklist for parents.
• Newsletter article in English and Spanish.
• Jeffco Connect Getting Started Guide for Parents – New Students (updated)
• Jeffco Connect Getting Started Guide for Parents – Returning Students (updated)
• Flier in English and Spanish for registration.
Effective July, 2011, parents may access the new system which will be used in all Jeffco Public schools next year.
Student information cards, which parents have previously filled out at school, will no longer be used. Your ability to access Jeffco Connect from any computer will save time at school registration. We will have computers and support available on our two registration days: August 12 (7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)
August 15 (6:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.)
Reminder: All families (new and returning) must attend registration at school.
Free and Reduced Lunch – Beginning July 22, applications for the Free and Reduced Lunch program will be available on line. Every school year a new application is required for all students. This new online capability is a more efficient way for our District to process and approve applications. See the direct link to The Apply for Lunch website on the Peiffer homepage.
Transportation Fees: In response to the State of Colorado’s current budget crisis, Jeffco Public Schools is cutting nearly $40 million from the 2011 – 2012 budget. The bus fees are one of the ways the district is offsetting the millions in reductions.
Parents will need to pay $100.00 per child, per year, for students who ride the bus to their neighborhood school. Starting July 18, parents can pay the bus fees on line at Pay Schools or at school registrations in August. Transportation representatives will be at Peiffer on August 12 and August 15. (Families who qualify for Free and Reduced lunch will not pay bus fees.)
Monday, August 22 through Friday, September 2, 2011 transportation WILL BE provided for ALL students assigned to a bus, whether they are eligible for free transportation or are required to pay a fee.
Please note: Students should be at their assigned bus stop on the first day of school, Tuesday, August 23rd.
