School portraits will be sent home tomorrow (in the normal Friday folders for elementary students, in class for middle and high school students). Elementary class pictures were also sent home.
If you purchased a package and are satisfied with the pictures you received, you do not need to do anything further. If you did not pre-order a package but would like to place an order based on the proof you received, please follow the instructions included in the packet to place your package order online.
A picture retake day is scheduled for Friday, September 30; retakes will be completed during the regular school day. Students who were absent should have their portraits taken at that time. Also, as you can see in the information sent home in the portrait packet, if you were not satisfied with the picture taken, the proof or picture package can be returned on retake day and the picture redone at that time.
On our website, www.BobJonesAcademy.net, please note the center bar for convenient links to our calendar, student email, grades, and other resources. The link to NetClassroom is the access point for your student’s grades.
To be sure the needed information is displayed on NetClassroom for each of your children, after logging in to NetClassroom, click the "My settings" button on the top blue bar. Here you can choose what grades or how many upcoming assignments show or how the schedule or grades display. Because it is on a per student basis, be sure to repeat the process and save for each child's page.
While you can change views on other pages, such as the assignment calendar, these changes cannot be saved and will not be retained when you log out. The only changes that are retained are those that are saved at the "homepage."
For your convenience, phone numbers for the various school offices are listed on the "contact us" page on the school website, and email addresses for your child’s teacher(s) are accessible under their pictures on the faculty pages of the website.

BJA uses SchoolCast to give parents timely information regarding inclement weather closings and emergencies. To give parents an opportunity to verify that their SchoolCast information and settings are working correctly, BJA plans to send a SchoolCast test message to all parents around 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening, September 6.
Some may have realized already that SchoolCast messages about a detour near school—sent earlier this week—did not include home phone numbers. Because those were not included, this actual test message will be completed as usual.
You may want to double-check your settings and contact information in SchoolCast ahead of this test message in case you would like to make any changes for this year. Notification means can include cell phone, home phone, work phone, and email; this test message will not be sent to work numbers. You may want to review any additional contacts you have listed in SchoolCast since this message (as well as other SchoolCast notifications) will go to all contacts listed in SchoolCast. You can find a link to SchoolCast on our Resources pages, and you can retrieve a forgotten password at the SchoolCast login page. If you need help with your username or if you do not receive the test message, please contact a school office.
