  A New School Website and User Experience is Coming Soon – August 31, 2016  
  Our current school website, SchoolFusion, is currently being migrated over to a new school website on a different platform.  This new platform will provide a different and better user experience.  This will be an entire district-wide migration.  The new website is set to be active on August 31, 2016.  

Classroom Web pages will now be conveniently located in Synergy on ParentVUE and StudentVUE, along with grades and attendance information.  This is in an effort to create better communication and an easier user experience for everyone.  Our Staffulty contact information will still be available on our new school website.  

During this migration, important information and news will still be posted on SchoolFusion.  Requests for password resets for parent/guardian and student accounts on SchoolFusion will not be honored though as new accounts will be created with our new website platform.  Password resets will only be honored for students who are attempting to access Summer Assignment Web pages on SchoolFusion.
