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 most of our teachers will have Promethean Boards in their classrooms.  We are excited about having these interactive boards available to help student learning.  This is year  iPads will be available for all 5th - 8th grade students.    Our 7th and 8th grade students have the option of taking their iPad home with them. 


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 Tuesday's and Thursday's from 3:30 to 4:30 starting on September 6, 2016.  ASAP (formerly called tutoring) 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!
