On behalf of La Jara Elementary School, we are very excited to have you as a part of our educational experience. As we begin this school year, please review the district/building policies contained within the handbook on this website under School Policies. While the handbook may or may not address all issues, it is quite encompassing of daily and weekly endeavors at L.J.E. Any areas not covered within the handbook will be addressed in accordance with North Conejos School District policies. It is important that you read the handbook and discuss the rules, regulations, and procedures with your child.
In order to preserve student safety, the integrity of the teachers' individual programs, student achievement, and uninterrupted instructional time, there are procedures outlined in the handbook that need to be reviewed; (drop-off zone, gifts, before school arrival, visitors, etc.). These procedures will be adhered to during the course of this school year.
After reviewing the website, I invite you to contact me should you have any questions. I encourage you to take an active role in your child's education. Please feel free to visit the school and your child's classroom whenever possible.
For the safety of your child, please remind them to use the crosswalks at the street corners and to never cross in between the busses. Also parents, please make sure that your child's name is on all their belongings, coats, backpacks, etc.
Thank you for your time, attention and cooperation in facilitating the following policies and procedures, and may we have a great year.
