Fee Refunds

Refunded class fees for third trimester courses that had supply fees are now on Jeffco Connect. If you do not see a refund on your fee schedule, you do not have a refund coming. If you do have a refund listed, it will roll over to next year and can be applied to 2020-2021 school fees.

The airline deposit for seventh grade students that planned on attending Sea Camp has been refunded and is listed on the Jeffco Connect fee schedule. The refund will rollover and can be applied to school fees next year. If you only paid the $150 Sea Camp deposit and nothing else, you do not have a refund coming as of yet. If the Sea Camp deposit is refunded, we will let everyone know.

If you anticipate a move over the summer, please call Mrs. Jessee by Friday, May 22, and she can refund your credit card over the phone. The school does not have cash available for cash refunds.

 

2020-2021 Registration

Current 6th and 7th grade students have been asked to use the appropriate form, linked below, to select their 2020-2021 electives by today, May 22nd. This will help support the administration and counseling teams to place students in as many of their desired electives as possible. Students who do not complete this form will be placed in electives that have open seats.
