Rumor Has It

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Our goal is to make sure our parents, students, sta​ff and community members have accurate information. Rumors spread more quickly than ever in the era of social media. Our way to combat misinformation is to provide explanations to ​rumors that are spreading throughout the district. If you hear a rumor that may concern you or your child, consider the following:​

  • ​Identify the source. If it is a classroom concern, your first contact should be your child's teacher. If the issue is school-related, your first contact should be the principal or assistant principal.
  • Read the information sent home from school with your child and check the school or district website for updates.
  • ​Below are the answers to some of the most common questions or rumors we've heard from parents, teachers and the community.
  • If you have heard a rumor you do not see below, please Contact Us. ​
