• Digital Communication

    Teachers throughout the District have established a method of digital communication earlier this year.  We have asked our teachers to continue to utilize their established method of communication during this extended closure.  Outlined below are the platforms that are utilized in the District with a brief explanation of what they are used for and how you can access resources to assist you in using them.

    Infinite Campus is the District's Student Information System.  This is where parents can access grades and information about how the teacher will communicate with students.  Some of our teachers will be using the Message Center in Infinite Campus to keep in touch with parents and students via email.
