  • Parents: Clever is not loading properly for MANY students due to Focus not being able to communicate the information to Clever (class lists being delayed/not finalized yet in many instances).
     
    If your child is able to login to Focus, just not Clever, please be patient and do not worry about calling to reset your child's password (their username and password work if they are logged into Focus without issue).
     
    Additionally, you can login to Teams WITHOUT going through Clever if the issue persists on Friday during our Meet the Teacher virtual event- Teams has a standalone app and/or you can use the Teams website to download the app or just login via the webpage.
     
    Scholars need to login with their R2.D2@pcsb.org email (make sure to use their actual/unique R2.D2 username in this email address) and their same password when going into the Teams app.
     
    ***The image below is what you might see if Clever is not working for you.***

  • Jamerson families: As you may have heard, Pinellas County Schools has submitted a reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year for state approval. Parents are asked to make a choice between 3 learning options by July 27th at 5:00 PM. Your selection is vital for preparing to return. The link below contains a snapshot of the 3 choices: If you choose Traditional or MYPCS Online, you will remain a student at Jamerson and not lose your seat. If you choose Pinellas Virtual, Florida Virtual, or to Homeschool your child, your will be removed from Jamerson’s program and your seat will be filled. https://www.pcsb.org/cms/lib/FL01903687/Centricity/Domain/24/Reopening_Plan.pdf

    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

  • Jamerson’s 180 Days of Kindness

    We believe that our world needs A LOT more kindness!  We are challenging the scholars, staff, parents and families to 180 days of kindness.  There are 180 days of school each year and we are challenging you to be kind each and every day.  Each day you will learn about a new way to be kind, you will learn about different customs from around the world, and/or you will learn something new each day about how to be kind.  How to be kind to yourself, how to be kind to others, even how to be kind to our world.  We hope that you take us up on our challenge and that by the end of our 180 days together this school and community will be the kindest ever!  Some days it may be easy, some days could be a bit more challenging, but either way, it is so worth it-love and kindness need to win! 

    Visit our "180 Days of Kindness" shortcut on our homepage under "Site Shortcuts" for this week's kindness challenge!!!
