Important Mesage to Parents, Students, and Staff Regarding the District Email System

This past week the district was hit with another phishing attack on our email system. As a result the district email system has been denied service by several email providers including Shaw. Schools and teachers will not be able to send email to parents and students who have Shaw accounts until the 25th of April. If you need to communicate with your school or teacher it will be necessary to phone the school directly until email services have been restored.
