  • 2018-2019 Schedules


    First Day of School is August 27, 2018
    Registration takes place in the Small Gym at Jefferson High School, 5210 N. Kerby Ave. Portland, OR 97217
    What is Registration?  This is the time before school starts for all students to turn in required school paperwork, get a picture taken for the yearbook and a school ID* card which is also the student’s Tri-Met bus pass, get a locker, and most importantly, pick up a class schedule. 

    When is Registration?  August 13 and 14, 2018.
    • 9th Grade:   August 13th – 9:00 to 12:00 in the Small Gym
    • 10th Grade:  August 13th – 1:00 to 4:00 in the Small Gym
    • 11th Grade:  August 14th – 9:00 to 12:00 in the Small Gym
    • 12th Grade:  August 14th – 1:00 to 4:00 in the Small Gym
    Why is Registration important?  Registration is offered before school starts for several reasons.  1) Students pick up their class schedules and prepare for the first day of school.  2) Students get their yearbook photo done and get a school ID.  Make-up photos and the next chance to get an ID doesn’t happen until Monday, September 17.  3)  Students can work with a counselor to change a schedule if they successfully completed a summer school class.  4)  Registration makes for a smooth first day of school.
    Returning students should have received the Registration Packet in the mail by the first week of August. If you did not receive this packet please contact Ms. Blakeslee at the contact information provided above.

    *Students who are not able to attend registration can get their ID with bus pass on September 17th, 2018 from 9AM-12PM.


  • Important Summer Construction Work at Jefferson High School

    Jefferson High School will be under construction this summer. Work at the school includes the removal of asbestos containing floor tile and sheet vinyl flooring throughout the building and the replacement with new, asbestos free, flooring materials. This work is part of the voter approved May 2017 Health, Safety and Modernization Bond.

    What you need to know:

    • Construction will begin immediately following the end of this school year, in June.
    • Working hours:
      • Monday-Saturday, 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
      • Construction may affect access to certain areas of the building through the duration of summer break.
      • The Auditorium and music / choir areas will not be accessible until October 1st.
    • The school site will be open for summer programs but areas will be limited to certain classrooms and corridors, the cafeteria, and the small & large gymnasiums. Adjacent grounds will remain open and accessible.
    • Construction warning barricades will block access to specific work areas throughout the building at certain times during the summer break. Alternate access routes will be posted prior to work starting.
    • There will be increased construction traffic in and around school grounds; however, street closures are not anticipated.
    • School Registration will take place at the school office which will remain accessible.

    We recognize that this construction may cause some access issues to staff and students. Our apologies in advance for any inconvenience this may cause, but, please know that Jefferson High School will be receiving much needed work.

    Safety Concerns:
    Asbestos flooring removal is considered some of the least hazardous type of asbestos abatement work. However, all regulatory required safety protocols will be followed and strictly enforced by an on-site supervisor and a third-party environmental consultant. All asbestos removal work will be performed inside negative pressure enclosures with daily air monitoring in and around the immediate work areas. This work will be performed in a manner that will not allow staff or students in any direct vicinity of the work by use of construction barriers and warning signs.
