When you change your clock ⏰, it’s a great idea to change the batteries ? in your smoke alarms!
You asked! We changed!
You’re invited to take our website survey to find out if the new website is meeting your needs.
During the last few months, we’ve been working to revamp our campus websites based on the feedback we received from focus groups, and online user surveys. Your feedback was critical because it helped us understand why people visit our websites and what they are trying to achieve once they get there.
It’s easy to take part in the survey and should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete!
We take your feedback very seriously, and want to provide parents with a valuable resource. If one of your favorite features from the old site is missing: let us know… (Gently – remember the Golden Rule!)
Click on this link to take the survey immediately.
