Welcome! We are so excited to start the 2020-21 school year with you! It’s been a busy few weeks at West Jeff Middle as we all get ready for classes to begin.

Three tasks to do by Monday

To help you prepare for classes, please complete the following three tasks by Monday:

Use Infinite Campus Portal to find your schedule.

Use the Classroom Code Matrix to find the class codes for each of your classes.

Join the Google Classroom for each class.

You may want to refer to the following step-by-step directions and video about how to complete these tasks:

If you have technical issues with joining a classroom or need to reset your password, please e-mail digital teacher-librarian Amy Gutierrez Baker at ambaker@jeffco.k12.co.us.

 

What does Monday look like?

Monday is a Blue day, so students will have periods 1, 2, 3 and Homeroom.

At 7:30 am, you will want to login to the Google Classroom you have for 1st period. There will be an announcement posted in the classroom to let you know if the class will be meeting in Google Meets or in Jeffco Zoom. Then, you will have your 1st period class.

At 9:15 am, you will do the same thing, only logging in for your 2nd period class. Login to the Google Classroom you have for 2nd period. There will be an announcement posted in the classroom to let you know if the class will be meeting in Google Meets or in Jeffco Zoom. Then, you will have your 2nd period class.

Lunch break is from 11:00 – 11:30 am.

After lunch, you will want to log in at 11:35 am to the Google Classroom you have for 3rd period. There will be an announcement posted in the classroom to let you know if the class will be meeting in Google Meets or in Jeffco Zoom. Then, you will have your 3rd period class.

Your last class of the day is Homeroom, which starts at 1:20 pm. Login to the Google Classroom you have for Homeroom. There will be an announcement posted in the classroom to let you know if the class will be meeting in Google Meets or in Jeffco Zoom. Then, you will have your Homeroom class.

For more information on our remote learning and hybrid schedules, please visit our Calendar/Bell Schedule page to see just the schedules or the 2020-2021 Remote and Hybrid Schedules news article for more detailed information.

We understand that you may have some technical difficulties with this process. We will all be patient and help you along the way. We can do this together!

We are so excited to "see" you!

 

Additional Schedule Information

The following information was provided after schedules were posted in Infinite Campus:

Please check your schedule to ensure you have four core content classes and two electives. (Core content classes are English/Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies/History.) If your schedule does not have four core content classes and two electives, please email Mrs. Samuelson and CC your counselor to have it corrected.

You may see electives that were not in your top choices. With all of the constraints in our scheduling this year, we were only able to guarantee choices for instrumental music and 8th grade Spanish. Our priority was to balance numbers to adhere to health and safety guidelines while still running three separate schedules for our hybrid groups and our 100% remote students. As the year progresses, we will do our best to increase elective choices.

Some of the schedules for 100% Remote students are still being adjusted. If you are a student who is 100% Remote, please double check your schedule over the weekend before signing up to the Google Classrooms.

 

We know it has been frustrating to wait for schedules and appreciate your patience as we work through this process. Thank you for working with us and we can’t wait to see you on Monday.
