Dear Jackson Davis Families,

Plans are underway for Summer Academy 2021 which will offer a unique opportunity for our currently enrolled K through 5 students.  At no cost to HCPS families, learners have the opportunity to receive teacher-led, in person or virtual instruction in literacy, and mathematics. Reading and math activities will include whole class and small group instruction to meet students’ individual needs. 

Elementary Summer Academy will be held Monday through Thursday from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM from July 12 to August 5.  Families have the flexibility to attend the entire four weeks, or you may choose a two-week session (July 12-July 22 or July 26-August 5). JDES in person learners will attend Summer Academy at Ridge Elementary School. Breakfast and lunch will be served, and transportation to elementary school sites will be provided from JDES to Ridge ES.

Registration begins on Monday, April 12. If you are interested in this opportunity, please complete the attached registration form, and authorization to pick up form. You may send the forms to your child’s teacher or directly to Amy Ford at agford@henrico.k12.va.us or bring it to the JDES main office. Once your child has been registered for Summer Academy, parents will receive confirmation from the school. 

Please let us know if you have any questions (527-4620) and have a great day.

Sincerely,

Amy Ford, Associate Principal

In January, Henrico Schools will make adjustments to curbside meal service

Distribution at 12 schools will be consolidated with nearby sites

Henrico, Va. Dec. 16, 2020 — Henrico County Public Schools will consolidate curbside meals distribution at 12 schools with lower participation rates and merge service at those facilities with nearby schools, effective Monday, Jan. 4.

Each of the discontinued sites is three miles or less from an alternate site with curbside meal service. Families aren’t limited by these sites, however, and can choose to pick up school meals at any other HCPS school. The last day for curbside pickup service at the 12 sites will be Thursday, Dec. 17. Neighborhood meals distribution at bus-stop sites will continue unchanged. A list of alternative sites is below:

HCPS’ School Nutrition Services Department has answered the challenge of a highly unusual school year by distributing free breakfasts and lunches to students using a two-pronged system — free curbside pick-up service at HCPS schools, and teaming with HCPS Pupil Transportation Services to distribute free meals directly to 61 stops in Henrico County neighborhoods, using school buses. See an online map of school and bus stop distribution sites by going to https://tinyurl.com/HCPSMealsSites.

School Supplies

Do you need school supplies? Please contact Mrs. Neylon.

Attached you will find our JDES Supply List 2020-2021. As we are starting the school year virtually, we have limited the supplies to those we believe will be necessary for use in the virtual classroom. Several grade levels have added materials that students would need when we return to instruction in the building. Many families have asked for both lists now so that they can make their purchases while supplies are easier to find.

Henrico Schools using “Anonymous Alerts” system to improve communication about safety concerns

What is Anonymous Alerts?

The Anonymous Alerts safety and anti-bullying reporting system helps combat negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.

The system allows for one-way or two-way anonymous encrypted communication between those submitting reports (students, parents or community members) and school division administration and staff members. System users have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.

How does it work?

To use the new app, students, parents or others simply visit the Henrico County Public Schools website and click on the “Anonymous Alerts” button or the text link to submit a report expressing a concern. Anonymous Alerts apps can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or Chrome stores.

Users enter Henrico Schools’ Anonymous Alerts activation code – Henrico – and select the school to which the message should go. Informational posters explaining how to use the system will be displayed in HCPS schools and offices.

To send reports from the internet, go to: https://report.anonymousalerts.com/henrico.

To send a report from your phone:

  • Download the free Anonymous Alerts app from the Apple Store, Google Play store or Chrome store.
  • Launch the app and enter the activation code, Henrico.
  • Send important reports to school officials.
  • If desired, add a screenshot, photo or video about the incident.
