Back to School Letter from Mr. Molloy Dear Jefferson Intermediate Students and Families, I’d like to welcome you to the start of the 2020-21 school year! As many of you know, my name is Sean Molloy. This will be my second year as principal at Jefferson Intermediate. Throughout the previous school year, I had the opportunity to meet many of you. I look forward to continuing those relationships this school year. Please read through this letter carefully. The safety of students, families and staff members is my highest priority. Due to COVID-19, Welcome Back to School Night will be formatted differently this year. It is essential that the times, locations, etc., detailed below are followed. If you have specific questions or requests, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Staff members have already begun preparations for the start of the new school year. The first day of school will be Wednesday, August 19th. Please note that this first day is an early dismissal with students at Jefferson Intermediate dismissing at 1:50 p.m. At Jefferson, we strive to create a culture of learning. We are dedicated to the academic achievement and personal growth of each student. In school, we set high expectations for academic excellence, trust, respect, community involvement, communication and the recognition of both student and staff achievement. I’m honored to serve as your principal and will do my best to see each child succeed. Jefferson families are invited to attend Jefferson Intermediate’s annual “WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT” on Monday, August 17th. This is the best opportunity for you and your family to visit your classroom and to meet your new teacher prior to the start of the school year. You’ll also have the opportunity to hear FPS COVID-19 procedures/protocols. We are committed to providing in-person instruction in a safe learning environment. Also, plan to take advantage of cafeteria staff being available to process meal account deposits. Representatives from the Fairbury PTA will also be available to collect your Summer Reading Logs and to share planned programs and activities, volunteer opportunities and membership details. It is vitally important that you follow the schedule below. Masks are not required, but recommended. **In the best interest of staff and students, I’m asking that additional students are not brought to a specific grade-level’s open house. For example, if a family has a 3rd and 5th grade student, those two students will only be allowed to visit their specific classroom, not their siblings.** 3rd Grade - 3:00-5:00 PM Last name A-M (3:00-4:00) Last name N-Z (4:00-5:00) Parents, please park on the blacktop (Southeast Parking Lot).
