There are some new features as well.†

Using our School Messenger System primarily for recorded calls, parents†can now sign up to receive Text Messages regarding school closings, delays, safety alerts, and event reminders. †To participate and receive text alerts text Y, YES or OPTIN to 68453.
Updated Safety Policy for 2016 - 2017
We will not take messages or calls for schedule changes after 2:00 PM each day unless it is truly an emergency. Students in middle school should be responsible enough to know their plans in the morning or if you do have a schedule, bus or pick up change during the day, you may text your child if he/she has a cell phone or you may call the school office to deliver a message, but it must be BEFORE 2:00 PM. This is a school safety concern and to protect the instructional time from distractions at the end of the day. Thanks for your help with this new policy. If you have questions, please contact Principal Nicholas Honeycutt, firstname.lastname@example.org or 649.2269.
