Potato Head



    Did you know that Jefferson has one of the highest tardy rates in the district?


    We want every child to school on time every day, so we’re implementing No Tardy Taters on Tuesday, Jan. 8. Every classroom teacher has a Mr. or Mrs. Potato Head. Here is how it works:

    • For every day that all students are on time to their classrooms (9:15 a.m.), one body part will be added to the Potato Head.
    • Each time all 10 parts have been added, students will earn a classroom celebration/experience such as extra recess or pajama day. Incentives will be determined by individual classes.
    • When a class reaches 50 days, they will earn fun with the principals, such as duct taping the principals to the wall, sliming the principals, or tossing pies in the principals’ faces.
    • When a class reaches 75 days, they will earn an “Ice Cream Cohn Celebration” with Everett Public Schools’ Superintendent Dr. Gary Cohn.
    • When a class reaches 100 days, they will earn lunch with Everett Mayor Cassie Franklin.


    We are hopeful that students and families will take seriously the importance of arriving to school on time every day. Classes head in from the covered play area between 9:05 and 9:10 (the first bell), but student supervision there (and in the kindergarten area) begins at 8:55. Breakfast begins at 8:45.

    If you have any questions, please contact Annette Sternberg, assistant principal, at ASternberg@everettsd.org.

    Parking Lot Reminders


    The Jefferson parking lot is a very busy place! Please consider parking at Eastmont Park & Ride (0.2 of a mile away) and walking up. Whenever you are in the parking lot, please follow these guidelines in order to keep everyone safe.

    • Park only in marked spaces. Do not park in a handicapped space unless you have a placard.
    • If picking up a student, stay in your vehicle in the "kiss and go" lane. We will have visor nametags and directions for use printed and distributed as soon as possible to speed this process as much as we can. 
    • If you are walking, always use a crosswalk and follow Safety Patrol students' directions. 
    • Never pick up, drop off, wait, or park in the back parking lot. It is for staff, deliveries, and buses only.
