Emergency Text

Sign up for emergency communications to your mobile device!




From Administration and Teachers:

School-wide communications are sent home with students every Wednesday in the Blue Parents Folders. Sign the signature page and return it to your child’s teacher, along with any communication documents that should be returned to school.

Information typically included in the blue folder will also be posted on the JOES website or sent to the Yahoo Group weekly as a special Parents Press newsletter.  


Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher conferences are held twice a year in the Fall and Spring – a great time for feedback on your child's progress!


School Messenger

SFUSD implemented a new communication system called School Messenger.  This new system greatly enhances our ability to communicate with our school community electronically via voice calls, email, and SMS text messages! In order to make sure that we are able to communicate with you via all of these methods, please make sure you have an up-to-date EMAIL ADDRESS and MOBILE NUMBER designated on your emergency card. This is the information that will be entered into the system so you may receive messages.
