School roof project update
Progressive Roofing Inc. is currently working on roof replacement at Charlotte Avenue Elementary and Union Pleasant Elementary Schools. Although the crew has experienced higher than average rainfall since the end of the school year, the work is on track to be substantially complete at both schools prior to the start of the 2017-2018 school year. Work progress will continue to be monitored closely by the project team, with hours worked and crew size being adjusted by the contractor as needed to meet the schedule for the project.

You spoke…we listened. Many parents have told us that they prefer to receive school notifications via text message or email instead of automated phone calls. So, this school year, the district is relying less on “robo calls” to relay certain information and more on text/email through service provider SchoolMessenger. Parents: The district must have your correct cell phone number and/or email address on file in order for you to receive notifications. Additionally, to receive texts, you must take the extra step of opting-in.
