School Districthas made a commitment to advancing towards a more paperless school with the implementation of the Virtual Backpack. Through this effort, district information will be provided on line, instead of on paper.To ensure that you do not miss any important information, the District intends to use E-Alerts as a method of delivery of all pertinent district information such as weather information and Virtual Backpack information.To take advantage of the E-Alerts feature, parents will have to register online on our district website and subscribe to those sections or sites from which they wish to receive notices, announcements, etc. After registering, E-Alerts will be emails sent to subscribers notifying them of changes made to those sections or sites on the web. Please note ... these emails will be sent from SchoolWires E-Alert System with an address of firstname.lastname@example.org - this address may need to be whitelisted in your email account.
