Mission Statement

Jefferson West Middle School provides all students opportunities to develop skills to be lifelong learners.


Welcome to the 2017-18 school year at Jeff West MS!!


Communication is an important part of any organization especially a school.  There are a variety of ways to communicate with the staff at Jeff West MS.  These include email - all email addresses are the firstname.lastname@usd340.org, e.g. john.hamon@usd340.org.  Our school phone number is 785-484-2900 and a variety of information is available on our school website, including the daily announcements.  The middle school has a Facebook page, search for Jeff West MS.  Parents are also encouraged to follow Mr. Hamon on Twitter @jwmsprincipal. 

This year we will continue to have iPads available for all 5th - 8th grade students.    Our 7th and 8th grade students have the option of taking their iPad home with them. We will also begin implementation of MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support) at JWMS.  


Below is information for our 5th grade students:

  -  Start at ES at 8:00, bussed over to MS around 9:10
  -  All communication through the middle school (e.g. child is sick, someone else picking up, etc.)
  -  5th grade is at MS for the rest of the day.  School dismissed at 3:25


After School Assistance Program (ASAP) will be on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday on days that we have from school from 3:30 to 4:00. ASAP is a great time to catch up on missing homework, work on upcoming projects, or complete F packets.  If you have any questions regarding ASAP please contact the middle school at 484-2900.



Students that are absent because of doctor's appointment will need to have a note from the doctor's office.  Thank you for your cooperation!
