All Jeffco schools use Jeffco Connect for entering and storing information formerly provided on the Student Information and Emergency Card. If you have a Jeffco Parent Portal account, please access Jeffco Connect using that same user name and password so that you can update information for all of your children. If your child has ever attended a Jeffco Public School, Jeffco preschool, or been assessed or received services through Child Find but you do NOT have a Parent Portal account, please access Jeffco Connect through the email invitation sent to your email address. If you have never had a child in a Jeffco Public School, Jeffco preschool, or received assessments or services through Child Find, please click here to create your parent account and complete the information for your students during the annual registration process. Jeffco Connect is the new online payment system for Jeffco Schools.
Online Student Information & Emergency Cards
We utilize Jeffco Connect for sending school newsletters, weekly updates, emergency closure and other important information. School Messenger uses email addresses and phone numbers provided to us during registration. To update information, please contact the front office. Please note that the phone system only calls numbers with a (303) or (720) prefix.
Student Attendance & Pre-Arranged AbsencesAttendance Line: 303.231.9801 x300
Pre-Arranged Absence Form
Consistent attendance is vital for every student's success. With this in mind, we ask families to schedule vacations during times when school is not in session. Colorado passed a policy clarifying attendance rules for public schools that went into effect during the 2009-10 school year. Refer to the current FHM Student and Parent Handbook for additional information regarding attendance. Please note that the Pre-Arranged Absence Form should be submitted to the front office at least three (3) days but no more than one month prior to the planned absence. Because approval or denail is based on student academic standing and attendance record at the time of the planned absence, forms will be processed on the third day before the planned absence.
Community Support Network
When Free Horizon Montessori was established in 2002, the founders also created a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation named the Free Horizon Montessori Foundation. The purpose of the foundation was to serve as the fundraising arm of the school and provide an independent bank account from which the school could draw upon to support itself. In 2006, the Foundation Board reorganized and renamed itself the Community Support Network (or CSN). The CSN’s name is derived from its commitment to support the Free Horizon Montessori community both financially and in spirit. Its focus is to build community, organize volunteer opportunities, fundraise, support our families and staff, and enhance the educational programming at our school. We strive to support Individualized Education, Engaging Curriculum, and Strong Community for our school and our children.
