Statement on "13 Reasons Why" Netflix Series
Dear Geneva 304 Families, We want to make you aware of a relatively new Netflix series, “13 Reasons Why,” based upon Jay Asher’s 2007 young adult novel. The series centers on an adolescent girl’s suicide and the thirteen cassette tapes she leaves behind detailing the reasons why she took her life. While the show is opening up awareness and conversation about issues that are typically hard to talk about, especially between adults and teens, there are some blatant shortcomings in its execution. The show and the book deal with mature themes, including sexual assault and suicide that are vividly portrayed in the TV version. As a result, the show is not appropriate for some viewers, particularly young teens and/or those whom have struggled with mental illness, self-injury or thoughts of suicide, and minimally should not be watched without accompanying dialogue and/or intervention from trusted adults.

Geneva's Own Kid Vikings Encourage Us to #KeepMovingFoward
The world has changed drastically over the last two decades. In Geneva, we recognize that if we are going to prepare students for the future, the way we educate students must also change. It’s time to start taking risks, time to innovate, and time to accept that failure is an essential step in the path to success. Changing the way things have always been done isn’t easy, but Geneva is going to #KeepMovingForward and our Kid Vikings are leading the way! 
Updated Install Directions for Office 365 for Home Use
Did you know that as a benefit of the District’s Microsoft licensing, we are able to offer our students and staff the ability to install the latest version of the Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote) on their home computer(s) free of charge? Using the student or staff member's Geneva304 email address and password, Microsoft Office 365 Pro Plus can be installed on up to 5 compatible PCs and Macs, plus 5 tablets, including iPads. The ability to use this version of Office will continue for as long as the student is enrolled or the staff member works in Geneva CUSD 304 and the district continues to maintain Office 365 email accounts.
