For the past couple of years we have been using the email addresses from Power School as our source for sending enews and other important class communications electronically. If your student graduates, advances from middle to high school, their information will get updated along with their student records. If you “opt out”, you will not get any communications to that email address for any of your children throughout the district, even if you attempt to register to the enews system.
If you have "opted out" of receiving enews, please email Mrs. Tenjeras, firstname.lastname@example.org indicating that you would like to be reinstated on Blackboard Connect. Thank you!
