WEEKLY NEWSLETTER 

Ollie the Otter

Our weekly newsletter, called the Otter News, is sent out to all JVA families on Monday mornings during the school year.  School Messenger sends communications out to the information parents/guardians save in their Jeffco Connect account.  If you are not receiving our school communications, please check your account to make sure your information is accurate.  If you are unsure of how to log into your account, contact our main office at (303) 992-6770.


It’s been a full month since schools started and JVA students are working hard! This Friday, September 20, is a Teacher Work Day. That technically means no school for JVA students, however, all classes will still be available for students to complete work. Teachers will not be available that day for help. If high schools students need in person help, they are welcome to stop in on Thursday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm to meet with teachers.  Don’t forget to check out the Counseling Corner for job opportunities, scholarships and college information. Here’s the link to the Otter News, it’s full of things you otter know!
