PTA to Parent Email Lists

Generated and Operated by the James Leitch PTA

The School-Parent Email Lists help facilitate School/PTA to parent communications.  Examples of appropriate communication are early release reminders, field trip announcements, principal newsletter, PTA news, school related announcements, and communications from FUSD. News relevant to James Leitch will be sent by authorized moderators. 

  • The Email List is not a discussion group. Communication is outbound only, and members cannot reply to the list.

  • This email list is not subject to spam. The list will NOT be shared with organizations outside of school, other schools, or individuals.  



* How to Join the PTA Yahoo or Google Groups email list for news & announcements: :

1.  Open the email account in which you want to receive School/PTA emails. Click compose to begin composing a new email. Copy and paste the appropriate email address below into the "To:" field. Send the email. (No other text is required in the email.)

2. Grade 3 will receive an email from Yahoo Groups titled "Please Confirm your request to join JLGrade3" Whereas Grades K, 1, and 2 will receive an email from "James Leitch Grade X" titled "Join Request for James Leitch Grade X," where X = K, 1, or 2. 

3. When you receive this email request to join, simply reply and send without making any changes to the email. Do NOT click the button or link causing you to "Join This Group."

Note1: When you follow instructions 1-3 above, you are not required to have a Yahoo ID, nor are you required to join the Yahoo Group.

Note2: There is no need to re-enroll each year. Instead during the summer, the moderator will move you to the next grade.
