ALL VISITORS AND PARENTS must report to the office to sign in for a school visitor pass. This is to ensure safety, provide accountability, support students, and respect learning.


For the safety and health of our students, the playground is now closed before and after school. There has been an increased number of unsupervised students on the playground at these times and the faculty and staff are not available for supervision during these hours. We ask that students leave campus immediately after school unless they are participating in a school sponsored after school event. Also, as posted on signs around campus, there is to be no riding of scooters, skateboards, hoverboards or bikes while on campus. Thank you for your cooperation.

Breakfast and Lunch Pricing Effective 5/26/2015

Jefferson Elementary will no longer make unlimited “lunch loans” (whether for breakfast or lunch) to students who do not have funds in their meal accounts.

The maximum loan amount will be as follows:

Maximum Loan
For students eligible for free meals No Loan
For students eligible for reduced price meals $2.00
For students who pay the regular student price for meals $12.50


Jefferson Elementary School kindly asks that parents deposit a minimum of $25 in your child's account.

If there are no funds in your child’s meal account, and the “lunch loan” maximum amount has been reached, you should send your child to school with a home lunch. This will take effect and be enforced beginning on Monday, 6 February 2011.
We also want to take this opportunity to remind you that meal prices are currently set at the following:

Student price $1.10
Reduced student price $0.30
Student price – second meal $2.40
Adult price $2.40


Student price $2.50
Reduced student price $0.40
Student price – second meal $5.50
Adult price $5.50


As a reminder, free lunch students are still required to clear any outstanding balances they accrued prior to obtaining free lunch status.
Any questions can be addressed to Ms. Glenna Owens, Director, School Food Services Branch at (808) 733-8400. We look forward to your assistance in providing nutritious meals to your child.
