Hello, Summit families! It’s almost LAUNCH TIME! We're busy planning, creating, writing, editing, printing, cleaning, painting, learning, researching, setting up, moving things around... the list goes on and on. We are so excited for the beginning of the 2032-24 school year and are really looking forward to seeing some familiar faces and meeting our new families!
Below you will find…
parent Infinite Campus account help
a list of items that have to be completed ONLINE before Launch
a list of tents that will be set up at Launch for you to visit if needed
But first, a few notes...
Parents attend Launch with their students. There are tents to be visited for housekeeping items and parent meetings for both elementary and secondary parents. Please park around the buildings and walk to the alley between the buildings, entering from the east end. No parking between the buildings (the area will be blocked off).
Please bookmark and frequently refer to the Summit Event Calendar. All Summit events will be added to this spreadsheet with details, contact info for questions, needed links, etc. The SEC is best viewed on a computer screen.
Our Summit Spirit Store will be open several times during the year - the first time being very soon! 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 couple of days and check back. Some class codes have not populated yet.
Students will be told of any needed supplies while meeting with their teachers at Launch. We do not have a general supply list this year, and no supply donations are being requested. We do recommend that students (or their parents if students are in lower grades) bring a notebook & pencil/pen to take notes if needed.
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 for more info on ordering pizza once the school year starts.
All Summit students (K-12) have a Google account set up for school use. Their Gmail address is their seven digit student ID number @jeffcoschools.us (firstname.lastname@example.org). The password is their birthday date written in an eight digit format (i.e. January 1st, 2010 = 01012010), unless a password reset was requested/performed by the student/parent. Password changes may be made here. Younger students will not need to access their email. Note: These credentials will also be used to log into the student's Schoology and Infinite Campus accounts.
Notice of Intent to homeschool letters should have been submitted during the enrollment process via EnrollJeffco. Please note, you can submit your NOI to Jeffco regardless of your district of residence. You may want to submit a student's NOI to your district of residence if your student might play sports or need services through that district. If you submit to your district of residence you do not need to also submit to Jeffco.
Full Time High School Students DO NOT submit a Notice of Intent to Homeschool. If a student comes more than one day, that does not make them a full time student; Full time designation requires a student to be enrolled in CE classes. If you don't know if your student is full-time or not, they probably aren't. Questions? Email Ms. Wall (email@example.com)
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, supply lists, syllabi, 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!

Schedule Change Requests
Before Launch feel free to email Mrs. Miller regarding class change requests. At Launch there will be a QR code available for parents to use to submit schedule change requests. Mrs. Breheny will be available to print schedules if needed.
From Mrs. Cordova... 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 possible. If you feel it may take longer please sign up for 2 back to back time slots. I look forward to meeting you! Questions? Email Mrs. Cordova (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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 snacks for us to keep on hand.
Thank you for volunteering for the 2023-24 school year, we truly couldn't do what we do for our students without your help. Signups for volunteers should be coming out soon, please keep a look out for that! If you have any questions or concerns please email Mrs. Cordova (email@example.com).
You may visit Mrs. Burns & Mrs. Ladtkow at the Curriculum Tent to turn in overdue items, renew items still in use, and complete/turn in order forms. Books will not be pulled at Launch. Orders submitted at Launch should be ready for pick up by your attendance the following week. Summit’s catalog and curriculum order form are available for viewing/download on our website here. Questions? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Schoology Help Tent will offer assistance to students with Schoology issues. If a student is having problems logging into Schoology/Infinite Campus, passwords can be reset.
If you have not received an expected waiver by your Launch day, you may either email Ms. Wall (email@example.com) or stop by the Waivers tent and leave your name and email address. Ms. Wall will look into things and be in touch with you.
Mrs. Seybert will be available to accept school fee and pizza payment if you choose not to submit payments online as described above. If you elect to pay the Buy Out fee in lieu of volunteering hours, cash payment will be accepted at the Fee table.
