Communication

PACT Charter School has several modes of communication to help families keep up-to-date. Our main method is through Google Groups. All new families are added to the PACT-Communication Google Group. All other groups are voluntary. You may unsubscribe at any time.

 

Initial Welcome Email:

New families will receive an email "PACT Parent Access Credentials" from the Technology Department, 2-3 business days after enrollment confirmation. This email will provide families with their online user credentials to access JMC, Moodle/Website, and the eStore. It is important to provide a current email address that is checked often. New families that will be attending PACT the following school year after the lottery, will receive an email in the summer. If you don't see an email, please check your spam/junk mail.

 

Weekly Notes:

Emailed over the weekend, our Weekly Notes are announcements sent out about the upcoming week. It includes calendar dates, deadlines, and important reminders.

School Newsletters:

PACT has two newsletters that are posted on the website and emailed to the community via the PACT Communication Google Group:

  • The PACT Pilot is published on the first day of the month August through June. It includes news and updates about school happenings.
  • The PACT Pride is published on the 15th day of the month September through June. It highlights student and staff accomplishments from the previous month. This publication is available online only to those that are logged in.

 

Social Media:

PACT is on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. “Like” or “follow” us! Many groups at PACT also have their own Facebook page and you are encouraged to join your class page which are usually organized by high school graduation year. Many teams have group pages as well.

 

Teacher Briefs:

Elementary classroom teachers may communicate to parents with a class e-newsletter or weekly email that highlight classroom-specific information, including the week’s assignments. Secondary teachers use email to communicate information as needed.

 

Moodle:

Each teacher has a classroom webpage (a Moodle Page). These webpages are accessible by signing in with a parent login (provided by the school). It is important to provide an updated email address for electronic communications, otherwise, please contact the main office for options available to you.

 

Mailings:

An End of the School Year mailing is sent out in June, which includes final report cards and other important information. Then in August a Back-to-School mailing is sent out with important information for the new year. During the year other mailings include report cards and ballots for committee elections.

 

Committee Email:

We use Google Groups for our Committee Communication. You will need to sign-up for a group (see individual committee pages for google groups). Committee meeting agendas are posted online under the 'Governance' menu. See Google Groups FAQ for more information.

 

Calendars:

PACT uses the rSchool Today calendar for all of our events and sport activities. The calendar can be customized to create a specific calendars for your use (committee meetings, Character Awards, sports schedules, play rehearsals, etc.). See the calendars under the News & Events menu for details.

 

JMC Emergency Communication:

When necessary, PACT uses JMC Messaging to contact families by a recorded telephone message or text to alert you to school closings, transportation delays, or any other immediate information. Related information may be published on the home page of the website under PACT Charter Latest News. Families are able to select how they would like to receive these messages in their JMC Parent portal.
