As a district we strive to inform, listen to, and engage the community we serve in order to celebrate, support, and share the mission of our district.  Facebook is just one more tool we will utilize to make this happen.

School District Bullying Report Form
3/11/2015 2:53:58 PM
On April 9, 2014 Governor Dayton signed the Safe and Supportive Schools Act. This act required Minnesota school districts to implement a Bullying Policy beginning in the 2014-2015 school year. Our district had had a bullying policy in place for a number of years and the new legislation provided an opportunity for review and refinement. Please click above for more information or to download the district's Bullying Report Form.
