Right to Request Information for Parents

The federal “No Child Left Behind”  legislation requires that school districts notify parents each year of their right to request information about the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher(s).  In the Aberdeen School District, such requests can be made through Jim Sawin, the Human Resources director, at 538-2004.

School Closure Alerts

With the winter weather upon us, it is important for parents to be able to get up-to-date information regarding school closures.  If you have not yet signed up for the FlashAlert system, you may do so by going to  www.flashalert.net and signing up for text and/or email messages regarding school closures and other alerts.  School closures and delays are also announced on local radio and television stations.
