District Communication

The school district has moved away from using paper as the primary method of communication and we refocused efforts on using technology as a tool to share information with the community. The school district’s website, Gibbon Public School’s email, Power School, Buff Alerts, Schoology, Twitter, Facebook, and SUPTs On will be heavily utilized to share information with parents and guardians. Handbooks, the school calendar, school district policies, and all other school information will be offered via the district website. We believe using the multiple sources of technology available to parents, students, patrons, and teachers will improve the level of communication with our entire community.

We continously make modifications as we add, revise, and change information and encourage you to frequently check the school district’s website, Gibbon Public School’s email, Power School, Buff Alerts, Schoology, Twitter, and SUPTs On to quickly access new information.
