We're thrilled to bring you some exciting updates about our website, designed to enhance your experience! Your valuable input from our recent survey has been instrumental in shaping these improvements, and guess what? The survey is still open for responses! As we continue to receive actionable suggestions, we're actively making adjustments and can't wait to keep you in the loop on all the positive changes!

Stay tuned for more updates, download our GDRSD app, and thank you for being an essential part of our community and improving our website! 

Below are several of the recent changes we have made:

1. Explore Upcoming School Events with Ease
We don't have a magic wand, but we have something just as magical – our updated calendar pages! 🌟 Now, discovering essential dates is a breeze. No more endless scrolling – just a click away from all the exciting happenings! In addition to offering the ability to subscribe via Android, iCAL, and Google Calendar, you are just a click away from your child's school calendar by navigating to Menu and selecting Events

Bonus Tip: Our District Event Calendar page allows you to build a custom calendar by toggling on/off school calendars! Below is a screen capture of our District menu for reference.

2. Search Functionality Upgrade
Working with our website provider, Apptegy, we've given our search functionality a makeover! Finding what you need is now faster and smoother. Whether hunting down a specific event or looking for relevant information, our improved search is here to make your online experience seamless. Just use the search icon found in the menu bar of every webpage! 

3. Introducing 'Staff Directory' in the Main Menu Bar
We've made connecting with our fantastic staff easier than ever! The 'Staff Directory' is now waving at you in the menu bar. Need to reach out to a teacher or staff member? A couple of clicks, and you're there! 🙌

4. Contact Information at Your Fingertips
We know how important it is to access school contact information quickly. That's why we've tucked it neatly at the bottom of every page on our website. No matter where you are on the site, help is just a scroll away! 

Happy exploring,
