New Text Message Alerts

posted Jan 26, 2016, 8:40 AM by Jaime Kikpole

Later this school year, we will be replacing the text message alert system used by the school. This is used to let you know about snow days and other emergencies.

If you wish to be on the new system, let us know your cell phone number with this form. Additional information will be available as we get closer to the switch-over.

Note: If your phone service charges for text messages, those charges will still apply.

Web Outage Repaired

posted Apr 30, 2010, 1:48 PM by Jaime Kikpole

After several software upgrades and configuration adjustments, the web proxy is now running with antivirus protections again.  In addition, a change in the way the proxy accesses the antivirus system was made.  This should improve stability in the long term.

Everything should be stable at this time.  Thank you for your patience.
