An unexpected change was announced by District 204 at the end of last week... due to the security breach over the summer and associated security/privacy issues, the District will no longer be sharing student information with PTAs. What does this mean/affect??? The PTA Directory you typically receive! Due to this change, in order to publish a Fry Directory we will need to independently, manually collect contact information for each child at Fry... yes, that's 600+ kids!!
Due to this massive change, the Directory will likely be released MUCH later than usual. Please plan on receiving your Directory around the END of October (about a month later than last year).
In order for your child(ren) to be included in the Directory you MUST respond to the Google Form. Only the information received thru the form will be included!!! The form can found here:
Again, ONLY those people who provide information will be included in the Directory. NO information will be provided by Fry.
