Parents, please be aware of this: the Jefferson County School District is now implementing the use of an absence dialer. The Jefferson Elementary School takes attendance during the student's first period class. The Jefferson Middle/High School takes attendance every period. If your student is absent when attendance is taken and are marked "Unexcused", you will be called that day. The dialer will pull your phone number at 4 p.m. and then start dialing at 5 p.m. Cell phone numbers will be dialed first and then home phone numbers. This message is simply to inform you that your student missed class that day.
