The Loss of a JVA Staff Member

February 24, 2019

Dear Jeffco Virtual Academy students and families,

I have some sad news to share today.  Our assistant principal, Bridget Jones, has passed away.  Bridget was part of the Jeffco Public Schools family for many years, with ties to the Golden and Lakewood areas, the Virtual Academy, and more. She had been battling an illness for quite some time and succumbed to it over the weekend. This is a difficult loss for all of us, and our hearts go out to her family at this painful time.

Bridget was a valued and respected member of our school community and she will be greatly missed. The funeral service information is below.  I also want to let you know that we will have counselors on campus Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to support students and families as needed.

Friday, March 1st - Christ on the Mountain Catholic Church - 1 pm

If you or a student is struggling with grief or needs extra support immediately, you may want to explore these resources:

  • Jefferson Center for Mental Health website or 303.425.0300
  • Colorado Crisis Service website or hotline 1.844.493.8255

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school office.
