Safety Updates

Pick-up and Drop-off information


For student drop off, if you can’t pull forward, please have your student exit your vehicle and walk on the sidewalk to the building so that they may be on time.

Questions? Call our Customer Advocate Department at (800) 826-3535.

Parental Internet Control

Parents will have the ability to control their student’s internet usage outside of school hours. Student devices are monitored through the district’s internet filter 24/7, but parents can block additional web sites before and after school if they choose. Through the app, parents can view the top five sites visited in each of the following categories over the past day, week, two weeks or month. Parents can view a time-stamped list of every web site their child has accessed or attempted to access over the last month, and how much time they spent on that site. If the student was blocked from viewing a page by the district’s web filter, the list will indicate it.
