The following message was sent to families of students with a home language other than English.
Good evening, families:
Many of you are now receiving messages from Albemarle County Public Schools in a language other than English. Our new mass communication system, BrightArrow, uses your student’s “home language” to automatically translate our email, text, and text-to-speech messages. The translations are machine-generated and include a link to read or listen to the original message in English. We hope that this is a helpful service for many of you, though we realize that some of you may want to continue receiving messages in English.
If you would prefer to receive future messages only in English, please contact your child’s school and let them know.
