  • Summer Technology Help

    Using your computer over the summer requires the same care you use in school.  However, if something goes wrong, then know that the Technology Team will be working (part time) at the school to help you.  Call 817-814-4000 to check availability or email Strange.  

  • Summer Books

    District guidelines call for all library books being returned to campus on May 20th.  Yet, that only applies to hard copies, not our thousands of digital copies.  Check out the Getting Books page of the library website for a full list of places to get digital books.  Sign-in information is either your email log in or the district login under Classlink: Library Media Online Databases.  In Library Media Online, just find your choice on the menu and the log in is provided.  Need suggestions for the whole family
