iPAD PICK UP NIGHTS
Susquenita School District will be holding two Early Bird iPad Pick Up Nights for students in grades 7-12 on Wednesday, August 7th and Thursday, August 15th from 5:00 – 7:00 PM at the Susquenita High School.
Students in grades 7, and any other students who did not purchase insurance last year, will have the option to do so.
After submitting the signed Acceptable Use Policy (AUP), returning students in grades 8-12 may pick up and take home the iPad. The AUP must be signed by parents/guardians and students. Students in 7th grade and new students to the district will receive their iPad during the first week of school. We encourage these parents/guardians to attend one of these nights to submit the signed paperwork and pay the optional insurance so these students may take the iPad home the day it is issued.
In addition to picking up the iPad, we will also have computers available for those parents who need to complete the Infosnap Returning Student Form.
VIDEO INTERCOM SYSTEMS
As part of the Susquenita School District’s continuing effort to make a safe environment for our students, staff, and community, we have installed video intercom systems at each of the main entrances. Starting on Monday, August 20, 2018, anyone entering the buildings must present themselves at the camera. We ask that you initiate the system by pressing the silver button on the device, stand behind the painted line to ensure our staff can see you, and then wait for the staff to assist you.
The Susquenita School District has completed the process of migrating PowerLunch and MySchoolBucks student accounts to a new system called SchoolCafe. All student funds remaining from last school year have been transferred to accounts within the SchoolCafe system. SchoolCafe is now available for parents/guardians to deposit funds and monitor student meal accounts and you may create an account here: https://www.schoolcafe.com
You may also still fund your child’s account by sending, checks or cash into school with your student. Please be aware, if you decide to fund your child’s account through SchoolCafe by means of a credit card, there is a 5% convenience fee that the company applies.
Features of SchoolCafe:
- Prepay using your Visa or Mastercard
- Available 24 hours, 7 days a week
- View account balances and payment history

Alerts for Events such as School Delays and Closings
The Susquenita School District uses Blackboard Mass Notification as its mass notification systems, to send email, text messages, and automated phone calls to Parents/guardians and community members. It allows us to effectively communicate with families on a large scale. Blackboard Mass Notification also gives registered users the flexibility to choose which channels to receive notifications through.
Parents/guardians do not need to sign up for email and phone notifications; Blackboard Mass Notifications pulls contact 1 and contact 2 information from PowerSchool. In order to make sure you receive emergency notifications, including weather-related school closings, always notify your child’s school if a contact phone number or email changes.
If you would like to receive messages at additional phone numbers, email addresses, or text messages, you will need to sign up for a Blackboard account. Login or S\signup in the "Message System" section at the bottom of this webpage.
In addition to the mass notifications, the Susquenita School District will also communicate to families and community members using our webpage and Facebook. With all of these channels for notification we understand that there may be times you may think you are being over informed. That said, we would rather you receive multiple notifications than take a chance of you not being notified at all.
