February Issue: West Point Consolidated School District

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The West Point Consolidated School District is dedicated to providing safe and orderly schools for all students, improving student achievement, increasing parental and community involvement in our schools, promoting the use of technology by teachers and students alike, and providing our staff with the tools necessary to lead our students to becoming productive, successful citizens in a technology-based world.

We have partnered with Linewize by Family Zone, a leading provider of online safety products and education, to create an educational hub for parents and teachers. This hub includes articles, videos, courses, and more to ensure every stakeholder understands how to keep your kids safe online.

If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's school.

Thank you and God Bless!
