(Come on your attendance day.)

Start Time: 8:30

Elementary End Time: 12:15pm

Secondary End Time: 1:00pm


 

Hello, Summit families!  It’s almost LAUNCH TIME!  Things are buzzing around here - we're busy planning, creating, writing, editing, printing, cleaning, painting, learning, researching, setting up, moving things around... the list goes on. We are so excited for the beginning of the 2022-23 school year and are really looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting our new families! 

 

There will will be a lot of things to do at Launch, but no worries - there be even more staff members on hand to answer questions and direct people as needed. See buttons below for access to Launch Schedule, Stations Map, etc.  Below the buttons you'll find a list of items that have to be completed ONLINE before Launch. Finally, you'll see a list of tents that will be set up at Launch. 
 


But first, a few notes...

  • We will not have a weekly newsletter this year - instead we will have the Summit Event Calendar.  All Summit events will be added to this spreadsheet with details, contact info for questions, needed links, etc. Parents may refer to it at any time.

  • Summit Gear is back! The store will be open several times during the year. Keep an eye on the Summit Event Calendar for dates. 

  • If you see a period in your student's schedule with no class assigned in Campus, give it a few days and check back. There was an issue with class codes which has delayed the upload of some classes. Unless you were contacted to discuss other options, it's safe to assume your student received the 1st or 2nd choice they requested for the empty period.

  • Click here for school supply lists. Elementary group supplies will be collected at Launch. Other supplies will be needed on the first day of classes after Launch.

  • We will have a free slice of pizza for each student at Launch.  It's not necessarily a full lunch, but will give you an idea of what to order for your student each week. Go here to for more info on ordering pizza once the school year starts.

  • All Summit students (K-12) have an email account set up for school use. The address is their seven digit student ID number @jeffcoschools.us (1111111@jeffcoschools.us). The password is their birthday date written in an eight digit format (January 1st, 2010 = 01012010), unless a password reset was requested by the student/parent. Younger students will not need to access their email. Note: These credentials will also be used to log into Schoology.

  • How do I attend multiple classes with more than one child? Parents manage this in multiple ways.  They often pick and choose between different classes to attend.  They may choose a class with one child, but if another child has the same teacher for another class, they may choose to attend a different one.  Homework classes might be more important to attend.  National Honor Society students are on site to help young children get to classes.  

  • "My high schooler says they don't need to come because the teacher doesn't teach on that day."  WRONG! It is an important day for your high schooler. Teachers hand out texts, get any set up info,  go over class policies, etc.  It is the best way for your student to get started on the right foot. Besides...they will see their friends and get some free stuff!

Medical Paperwork/Medications

I am looking forward to getting to know all the Summit families, especially those with medical needs. With that said, I could use your help. I would like an opportunity to get to know families with medical needs on a personal level prior to Launch day. I am encouraging all parents to sign up to meet with me for about 10 minutes to discuss medical issues your child has prior to Launch day. Doing this will allow me to get to know you and your child better prior to the first day of school. I understand this may not be an option for everyone. I will be at all three Launch days and can answer questions then as well, just maybe a little rushed. Please visit this SignUpGenius to schedule 10 mins to meet with me before Launch. If you feel it may take longer please sign up for 2 back to back time slots. I look forward to meeting you!   - Mrs. Cordova

 

Medical Paperwork Meeting, what to bring: medication agreements, health care plans, self carry forms. These need to be signed by parent, child (if self carries) and physician. You may also bring current immunization records. Please do not bring medications.

 

Launch Day, what to bring: Medications: Please be sure the child's first and last name, dosage and administration route, and date of expiration are on all medications and accompanying paperwork. Please keep medication in the original box. Snacks: If your child may need an emergency snack due to diabetes, hyperglycemic episodes, allergies (GF, etc) please bring some for us to keep on hand.

Thank you in advance for volunteering for the 22/23 school year, we truly couldn't do what we do for our students without your help. I hope all of you have received an email from me regarding volunteer positions.  If you have not received an email please let me know. The SignUpGenius for volunteers should be coming out soon, please keep a look out for that! If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.
