Free Resources during School closure.

Students now have an icon on myBackpack that will take them to a flyer with Important numbers they need to know. Every time students log on to myBackpack, the “Need Help” notification will pop-up for their review/closure.

UPDATE: The message has been set to show whenever a student logs into myBackpack up until the Monday that school begins.

 Here is the icon:
