News from the District
We have been informed by the district that ALL parents that plan on entering the building during the day before or after school, even if students are not in the building, need to be cleared. We are asking that EVERY parent or guardian that might be on campus for a conference, IEP meeting, 504 meeting or for anything else, PLEASE click on the link below to register for access.
Log in to Edmodo
Remember that the parent view of Edmodo is very different from the student view. You may want to use your child’s account. As we continue to use this program if you have suggestions on how we could make things better, please email Mrs. Kunze.
Please note: Are the silver and black dates messed up on your Edmodo calendar? If so, please check the time zone setting. Go to Me at the top and then settings. The time zone needs to be set on Universal Coordinated Time (UTC).
