Office and Staff Communication

  • Staff let's work together to keep the front office informed. If you are aware of a custody issue that will affect picture distribution please let Cindy know, if needed we can order two copies of picture packages.
  • During the school day if you leave a voicemail with a parent please let the Front Office know so we know where to direct the phone call when the parent calls back.
  • Finally during conferences please let the office know your last appointment so we can ensure the door is left open.

E-mail Policy Reminder

B. RULES FOR USE OF SCHOOL TECHNOLOGICAL RESOURCES


1. School district technological resources are provided for school-related purposes only. Acceptable uses of such technological resources are limited to responsible, efficient and legal activities that support learning and teaching. Use of school district technological resources for political purposes or for commercial gain or profit is prohibited. Student personal use of school district technological resources for amusement or entertainment is also prohibited. Because some incidental and occasional personal use by employees is inevitable, the board permits infrequent and brief personal use by employees so long as it occurs on personal time, does not interfere with school district business and is not otherwise prohibited by board policy or procedure.
