Announcements and Events

Universal Breakfast Program  

Jacobson has a universal breakfast program where every child has the opportunity for a free breakfast. Breakfast starts at 7:55 a.m. for kindergartners and 8:05 a.m. for grades 1-5. There is no cost for this breakfast
Student Lunch Dropoff 
If you are dropping off lunch for a student, we ask that all lunches are in the office by 11:15 a.m. regardless of the grade level. We have a pen/post-it for you to mark your Childs lunch. We tell all the students that if you do not have a lunch, please check the office on your way to the cafeteria. We do not call the classrooms to let them know there is a lunch in the office.
Arrival/Dismissal Car Line
At dismissal, all students will proceed through the front gates to the car line up. All bus students will report to the side of the school (Camilia Drive) where the bus pick-up is. Students are not allowed to be picked up on the side of the school. 
  • We are asking parents of 3:00 p.m. students to please wait until 2:50 p.m. to enter the car pick-up line. This gives the parents of 2:30 dismissal time to pick up their students.
  • We are asking kindergarten PM parents to please wait until 3:10 p.m. before getting in the car pick-up line, so that our 3:00 pm students can be picked up.

If cars are in line before their time and during dismissal, it causes a major back up.

March 30     Student of the Month - Caring



Dear Jacobson Families,
How time flies!  We are now in our last trimester of school.  This month, we have our Student of the Month Assembly for Fairness at the beginning of the month, and our assembly for Caring at the end of the month.  It is always very nice to acknowledge our students demonstrating these important character traits.  As adults, we play such an important role in the development of the children.  They see what we do and hear what we say.  Especially at school, when other children are around, it’s important to be careful of our actions, even in the parking lot.  The parking lot does get very congested, but, we’re all in the same boat, so treating others how we wish to be treated is vital.
The end of March marks the beginning of Smarter Balanced Assessments for third through fifth graders.  I will explain more about this along with some suggestions to help the students during testing in next month’s letter.
