What should I do/expect before the school year starts?
Prior to the start of school, make sure you have set up your Infinite Campus Parent Portal. This system will contain important information regarding your student's grades, attendance, schedule, and allow you to submit your lunch application and opt-in to transportation, etc. See this page for more information about Infinite Campus.
Get ready for lunch!
If your student plans to eat at school, set up their meal account and or complete the Free and Reduced Lunch application.
Opt-in to Bus Transportation
If needed, register your student to ride the school bus.
School supply lists are sent by each individual school.
Teacher assignments are shared a few days before school starts
Who do I go to if an issue arises?
As per Board Policy KE, start with your student's teacher. If your concerns are not addressed, then reach out to:
- School principal
- District administrator that oversees your school
- Board of Education
If you think your student has been bullied, you can complete the form linked at the top of this page. School personnel will then follow the investigation steps contained in Board Policy JDHB.
Victims of sexual harassment are encouraged to report the incident to an adult they trust, whether it is a school counselor, administrator or law enforcement.

How do I get involved?

There are many committees at the district level to get involved in.
District Accountability Committee (DAC)
There are also many ways to get involved at the school level through:
