September 14, 2022 Dear K-5 Parents and Guardians, DPS #170 was notified this morning of a breach with Seesaw, the communication and online learning tool utilized by kindergarten through fifth grade classes. Specifically, an inappropriate picture was sent from an outside source. We have learned that this breach is nationwide and not specific to Dixon Public Schools. At this time, we have disabled messaging and will not be utilizing Seesaw until we know there is a resolution to this breach. We recommend that parents not access Seesaw through the installed app until we know the issue is resolved. We are awaiting further information from Seesaw to determine our next steps. We will communicate this information with you as soon as we have it. Sincerely, Margo D. Empen James Manley Superintendent Director of Technology
