  • NEW COVID-19 COMMUNICATION PROTOCOLS EFFECTIVE FEB. 21
     
    As you may know, the district maintains a dashboard on our website that lists all positive cases in our schools at www.pcsb.org/covid19cases. This dashboard is updated each work/school day and is searchable by location and date.
     
    Additionally, in an effort to keep everyone overly-informed, principals have been sending out schoolwide messages every time a positive case is confirmed in their school. In many cases this is leading to families receiving multiple calls and emails per week and is causing confusion and message fatigue. We recognize that sending too many messages reduces their effectiveness. We have been asked to simplify the process to ensure families only receive the most essential communications, so we will be updating our protocols moving forward.
     
    Beginning February 21, we will do the following:
    • Notify by phone and email any student or staff member who is identified as a direct contact and must quarantine.
    • Update the district’s COVID Public Dashboard every weekday at noon with cases confirmed the previous day.
    • Add a link to the district’s COVID Dashboard (www.pcsb.org/covid19cases) to the homepage of every school’s website.
     
    Beginning February 21, if you do not receive a call, then your student has not been deemed a close contact of a positive case and should attend school normally. If at any time you would like additional information about the number of cases at your student’s school, or the safety protocols being followed, we encourage you to submit a question on the Dashboard webpage or reach out to the school principal.
     
    As always, we ask everyone to monitor themselves for any sign of illness. If we all do our part, we can continue to keep our school family healthy and safe.
     
    Thank you

  • Microsoft Login         PCS Login

     

    Note about Microsoft Teams: The Teams program is much more stable when you download the app, as opposed to going through Clever or a web browser.

    The app can be downloaded to mobile devices such as your phone or tablet as well as your computer. However, if you have one of Jamerson’s distributed devices, you don’t need to download a thing, Teams is already downloaded for you.

    If you are prompted with a Microsoft login page (picture #1 above) you should put in your child’s individual R2.D2 EMAIL- (r2.d2@pcsb.org). If you are prompted to login to Pinellas County Schools page, you should JUST use their R2.D2 and password (full email not needed).

  • No Domain

    If you are getting a “No Domain message” on your school issued device, that means your child’s login info did not stick when we logged them in during device check out. The only way to resolve this is to login on a school’s WiFi connection. HOWEVER, you do not need to be on Jamerson’s WiFi, it can be any county school near your house. If you can get close enough to the building, you can get on their WiFi without having to go in the building at all. Log in with their R2.D2 and password once close to the school building and then log back out. Once you are home, and on your personal WiFi, you should not get this error message again. If you do, please call the Help Desk at: 727-588-6060
