Other Information

The Annual Update of Student Information for the 2023-2024 school year is now open. Sign in to Skyward to complete.


The district has purchased new chromebooks this year. If they are received in time, high school students will be able to pick them up August 14-16. Middle school students will receive their chromebooks after the first day of school.

An accidental insurance plan has been included in the district’s purchase of the new chromebooks, so the $25 insurance fee that has been an option in the past is no longer needed. This year a fee of $27 will be charged for the specific chromebook case that is required to be on the device to cover warranty claims. These cases are expected to last three years.

School Supplies

High school students typically need pens, pencils and 5 folders and notebooks. Calculators are optional as they are available in all math classrooms and on each chromebook. Upper-level math classes may require a graphic calculator.
