Weekly Update for February 23-27

General Notes

The following message was sent by the District to parents/guardians last week.

To improve communication from school to home, we are rolling out a new notification system through Infinite Campus Messenger that can deliver critical information directly to your phone.  You’ll no longer need to rely on the media for important alerts about school closings, delays and event cancellations. However, this is not an automatic process – you need to opt in and choose your notification preferences: voice, text and/or email. Our students also have the option to receive notifications through a phone call and/or text; however you must add their phone number.  Please log in and make your notification updates before February 26 as we will be doing a system-wide test on that day.

Parents who do not yet have an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account must set one up.  If you have any question please contact the office for set up help.  Parents who do not currently have a Parent Portal account or cannot remember their username/password can also contact the office.
