Blackboard Connect is used to notify families of important upcoming events, emergencies, and to send individual messages. Messages may be received via telephone, email or text. Parents provide phone number, email address and cell phone number as part of registration. Parents may opt out of text message communications. Blackboard Connect also offers teachers the opportunity to send individualized messages to students about grades, behavior, and positive reinforcements. It is important that the school has a current active working primary telephone number, email address and cell phone for each family. If there is a change in primary telephone number, email address or cell number, please contact the Attendance Office as soon as possible. To add an additional number to receive messages, please contact the Counseling Office at extension 306. For those not wanting to receive messages, notify the Counseling Office or call extension 306.
