Trouble receiving email from the Jefferson E-tree?
At the January Jefferson PTA meeting, several parents said they are not receiving news from the Jefferson E-tree. If you are still having trouble receiving email from the Jefferson E-tree, please contact Stefan Lasiewski. We will work with our email provider, DigitalPTO, on these problems.
You can help us: Please take a moment and check in your email spam folder for messages starting with the subject “[Jefferson]”. Please mark them as “Not Spam”, which will improve our “email score” with Google, Hotmail, Yahoo Mail, etc.
