Frequently Asked Questions

Most commonly asked questions are listed here with answers and resource links.

Where do I find emergency and school closure information?

All parents and guardians will receive an auto-dial phone call in the event of an emergency. Information will also be shared on the district’s website, through FlashAlert, and through Linn-Benton ALERT Emergency Notification System.

For more information about how we communicate with families in emergency situations, visit the school district’s Emergency and School Closure Notification page.

Where do I register my student for riding the bus?

Bus transportation is provided to and from school from designated stops within the Jefferson attendance area, as well as to the Boys and Girls Club after school. You can register your student(s) to ride the bus on the Student Transportation page on the district website.

Bus routes and schedules can also be found at the above link.

What if my student loses a personal belonging at the school?

A student’s belongings, such as jackets, sweaters, gloves, hats, and boots, should be marked with first and last names. Misplaced items are stored in the Lost & Found. Items that remain unclaimed are donated to Vina Moses at winter, spring, and summer breaks.
