BARK for elbert School!
Keeping students safer on their school-provided devices is of paramount importance to Elbert School. In that regard, along with our use of SecureSchool, we would like to make you aware of a recent step the school has taken to monitor school-issued accounts. Bark for Schools is a powerful new monitoring service we are utilizing to help us better protect students both at school and at home.
When schools give students access to chromebooks and email accounts, an incredible world of learning opportunities open up — as well as potential dangers. Bark helps us monitor all of the content our students are creating, sharing, and sending through school-issued accounts. This helps us to detect potentially dangerous situations that students may be facing both in and out of school, including cyberbullying, threats of violence, predatory advances, sexual content, and suicidal ideation.
In the coming days, you will receive an invitation to create an account for the Bark for Schools Family Alerts Dashboard. After school hours and during weekends, breaks, and holidays, you'll receive alerts if issues are detected on your child's accounts, such as in emails or documents. You will have the opportunity to download the app to your phone and receive notifications relating to your student’s Elbert School Google account. We will be sending out notifications via SchoolMessenger to alert families to watch for the email from:
CHANGES IN BUS ROUTS
Beginning next Tuesday, Feb. 12, Elbert School bus routes will be changing, and your pick-up/drop off times will change accordingly.
Due to some unfortunate events, we will be running 3 routes, instead of the usual 4. This change will be permanent for the rest of the year. Drivers will be contacting you with updated AM and PM times before next Tuesday. In addition, there will now be two town pick up points: the Christian Church and the Post Office. Buses will be at these pick up points at 7:40 AM.
We appreciate your continued support and patience. This was not an easy decision, but we feel it is the best solution for everyone at this time. If you have any questions, please contact the school or your bus driver.
