Community input is very important to us. Please consider taking a few minutes to answer the questions in the survey and to share your thoughts with the study committee about the district's use of its facilities.

The safety and security of our students and staff is our number one priority. To help prevent activities that could negatively impact our schools, we have worked many years with Security Voice, Safe Schools Helpline, an outside company, with no ties to our schools. This is an anonymous helpline that you can use to let us know about and try to prevent problems before they occur. We have added a new "Safe Schools Helpline" button (white with red letters) on the main page of the district web site and on each building's web page. Listed on the page are three ways, either phone, text or Internet, to report acts such as violence, theft, drug or alcohol use, sexual harassment, weapons, bully behavior, etc. If you are not comfortable reporting these types of incidence, or information to our staff, please consider using this secure, anonymous service. Please, if you see, read, or hear something that threatens our school safety, please say something!
