Assistance for Families in Need

Dear Parents,

We have a great opportunity for STEM families in need who are currently experiencing an economic hardship. We have an organization who will help support our families with some boxes of staple food items with a one to two time distribution. We also have an organization who will be providing nutritious food/snacks for students who may otherwise not have enough food on the weekends. That program will begin in about 2 to 3 weeks. Students will be able to pick up the weekend healthy snack food items on Friday afternoons before bus dismissal.

For the boxed staple food items, parents will need to personally pick up those items as they will not be able to be transported by your child on the bus (additional details coming soon for parents who sign up). Please submit your request for food items by using the link below by this upcoming Wednesday, September 29th by COB. Your request for assistance will be treated with the utmost discretion.

Once you sign up, you will receive a consent form to sign and return. If you have any further questions, please email Thank you!

ClassLink Password

This school year the district is using a new program called ClassLink to manage student passwords. Any of your student's teachers can reset the password. The media center does not have access to reset or lookup passwords this year.

Once the teacher resets the student password the student may be prompted to change it. The passwords that students set must be complex and follow these requirements:

-Cannot reuse the last 3 passwords or phrases in previous passwords
-Password must be changed each year
-Minimum length is 8 characters.
-Must have upper case, lower case, numbers, and symbols.

This same password will be for district email, google drive, itslearning and classlink. Thank you as we adjust to this new password management system.
