Welcome to Our New Website!

As we begin a new year, we are thrilled to welcome you to our new website.

One of the first things you’ll notice is a uniform look and feel—whether you are at a district or school site. We listened to our community and provided easier and consistent navigation throughout the school websites. You will be able to find information more quickly, and in many cases with fewer clicks.

We also did the research to ensure the most visited items are prominent on all webpages.

  • Meal information (menus and more)
  • Skyward (schedules, grades)
  • School calendar
  • Staff directory
  • Volunteer information

Accessibility

One of the most important changes to our website is its accessibility. By improving accessibility and usability, the website now accommodates users with diverse abilities and aligns with our core values of equity, excellence and community.

Responsive Design

As you explore our new website, you will notice a responsive design feature that automatically adjusts content depending on what device you’re using to access the site. This makes information easily accessible from any technology device including tablets and smartphones, meaning you can get the information you need on the go.

Look Around and Let Us Know What You Think

We’re confident you’ll find our new website easier to use and be able to find the information important to you. Check it out, explore and click away in discovering our website’s exciting new format, features and enhancements.
