Preparing for winter weather now
Sorry to say, winter is right around the corner. And with the change in weather comes the possibility of school closures, late starts or early dismissals. In these situations, our schools use the district’s automated message system to contact parents. It’s important to keep your contact information in Campus Portal up to date. You can make changes, including e-mail and phone numbers, by logging into Campus Portal
and clicking on “Contact Preferences.” Click HERE
