UPDATED! Family Directory - Well, the best laid plans…. We did indeed turn on our Family Directory last week, but due to some issues with information appearing that parents had requested to be hidden, we have turned it off. Hopefully we will be able to turn it back on after consulting with Renweb on how best to handle this information. Thank you for your patience!
