There are many ways to stay connected at Jamestown. We want to make sure that you’re a part of each and every opportunity. You must sign up for each channel to take advantage of all Jamestown has to offer.
APS SCHOOL TALK
Parents are automatically signed up for School Talk as soon as you register your student for school, either online or by filling out the forms in your First Day Packet. If you prefer to access information online, you can use the new ParentVUE to confirm that your contact information is correct. ParentVUE: http://access.apsva.us/parents
The PTA Newsletter is sent out weekly via email. It’s a great way to keep informed about school happenings. It also contains community information that involves our families. How to sign up: Send a request to email@example.com and include your child’s grade level, teacher name, and email address.
You will be receiving information very soon on how to sign up for the directory. You can also sign up for the Jamestown grocery card fundraising program through this tool.
At the end of each week, the Principal sends out a note to the JES families. This automatically goes out to all families that have provided email addresses to the school.
Some staff also utilize the APS Blackboard channel for class communications. All students have a log in and password. You can log into this system at https://apsva.blackboard.com/webapps/portal/frameset.jsp.
