Virtual Backpack


In an effort to save resources and time required by school staff to sort and handle flyers, approved flyers will be posted on this page.

School backpacks will continue to be used by school administrators, teachers, and the school district to send communications and information home to parents, such as homework, classroom news, and school-sponsored activities. Flyers will not be sent home in student backpacks unless they are directly related to school business and are generated by the school or school district.
