Parents, Our communications platform is changing their carrier for calls and text messages. After noon on 9-24-2021, messages from the school district will come through a different service. The first text message you receive from the school after noon on the 24th will come with a notice identifying the school and giving you the chance to opt out of future messages. Please do not opt out as this is our emergency contact system and is critical for us to communicate with our parents. Thank you
