NEW! Go Guardian Software

In order to increase students online safety, engagement, and accountability we are now using GoGuardian. What is GoGuardian software you may ask? It is designed to help us easily manage student devices, better understand our kiddos, and keep them safer online. Staff are able to see, in real-time, students following along with lessons (or not) in class and help re-direct those needing assistance. As always, please reach out with any questions you may have.
