By the way, some people ask why we don’t have the email addresses of teachers posted on our website. The reason is that we were getting spammed and phished. Our security consultant suggested that we take down all email address from our public website. And so we did. However, the good news is that parents can find the address of their child’s teachers on the FACTS Family Portal.
