NEWS REWIND

DO YOU GET ALL THE NEWS FROM MV?    At any time the daily bulletin and other news items can be accessed on the MV homepage.   Please contact Jodi McFarland if you have any problems receiving the news.  jmcfarland@srvusd.net  

Do you receive daily bulletins?  School Loop sends out daily grade updates and bulletins.  To make this choice sign in to school loop and select it under your settings tab in the upper right corner.  When you do receive the daily news you still need to click on the bulletin link to read it. 

Do you receive weekly bulletins?  On Monday’s the bulletin is also sent out by the messenger program.  Some parents prefer to receive it only weekly so that program works better for them.  This choice is sometimes not received if you have at one time blocked emails from MV.  It is corrected by contacting the district communication office.
