Important new Student Accident Insurance

We recently renewed our contract with Markel Insurance to provide accident insurance for students.  It is the same program that has been available for students however there are a few administrative changes.  Markel Insurance is asking clients to use the link to their site for enrollment, claims and other features offered by Markel.  The website will be here temporarily and a permanent link on the left hand side of the district menu.  If you have questions concerning enrollment or other features contact Markel Insurance at 877-444-5014 or follow this link:  Markel Insurance

 WEEK AT A GLANCE

BUS TIME update: The athletics online program we use for athletics scheduling of practicing and games has been updated by the company. Currently, the new program only allows us to enter 1 bus time. We have placed a call to the company to let them know we need 2 bus times to show, and they are working on fixing the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause in the meantime.
