If you do not see an email invitation for the survey by this Friday, please check other email folders such as spam/junk, promotional or social. If no email is found, please contact School Perceptions for assistance by email

Yours in Education,

Inclement Weather Closings
If the District determines ahead of time that there is a possibility of a school closing due to inclement weather, here is the process for participating in at-home virtual learning:

  • The District determines before the end of the school day that classes will be cancelled the following day in anticipation of inclement weather.
  • Students will be sent home with their Chromebooks and cords for families wishing to take advantage of at-home virtual learning on inclement weather days. Learning will be facilitated by school community coordinators and coaches. 

Principals will send out a message to families with directions and live links to access virtual learning from home. No attendance is taken on these days.
