Dear Jackson-Via Families –
With excitement and zeal, I want to welcome you all to the Jackson-Via Elementary School community as we begin another school year.
Briefly, let me introduce myself and share a bit of information on who I am. My name is Justin Malone – the new principal of Jackson-Via Elementary School. For the past 4 years, I have worked as an assistant principal at Charlottesville High School. Prior to working at CHS, I was a special education teacher at an elementary school, a coordinator for special services, and an administrator at an elementary and middle school.
My goal for this letter is simple – to welcome families into our community and to express our expectation at Jackson-Via of developing meaningful family and community partnerships as we all work to help our students recognize their excellence.
On that note, please join us Monday, August 21st from 1pm – 3pm for our Open House. Families can tour our school, meet their student’s teachers, and learn more about our goals for this school year. Light snacks and beverages will be provided. Excellent door prizes will be handed out. Jackson-Via will also have a viewing station, including solar eclipse glasses, so families can safely view the solar eclipse.
Student bus stop information, including pick-up and drop-off times, are posted here.
This information may change between today and Wednesday. Parents are asked to check the Parent Portal for the most updated information. With any questions, do not hesitate to contact the school.
I look forward to seeing all of our families at Open House and working with you all throughout this remarkable school year.
This will be our year!
