Check out the FAQ page of the 1:Web website (parents page). There is a section on the last page of the first FAQ doc called Chromebooks at Home that has some suggestions for privacy and web filtering at home. Ed Tech is always updating this site, so check back often. Families can control access via home routers as well, but it will depend on router type.

Video Announcements

Take a look at what our Publications classes are working on! Video announcements are shown every Wednesday and Friday morning.

WEATHER POLICY

With the cooler temperatures coming, we want to make sure everyone is aware of our cold weather policy. Our students will be outdoors until the bell rings every day, unless the weather drops below 20 degrees or it's significantly raining/snowing. Only in these instances will we open up the cafeteria and allow students to enter the building before the first bell. Please make sure your student is dressing appropriately for the season!

2019 Great Words, Great Works Book List

Each year, the Scripps National Spelling Bee publishes its School Spelling Bee Study List, a list of 450 words to help students prepare for a school-level spelling bee. These 450 words come from a list of books carefully selected by the Bee’s editorial team for their engaging and age-appropriate content, as well as their rich vocabulary. That list of books is called the Great Words, Great Works list.
