If you have technology equipment that you are not using, please send a Tech Stream to the IT Department to have the equipment removed.

The IT Department will be responsible for completing the paperwork necessary for surplus technology equipment. If you have questions, please contact the Help Desk at ext. 8181.
From the Fire Marshall: Protocol for Interior Doors
As a result of a recent fire inspection of the Learning Resources Building, Olney Hall, and Fusselman Hall, the Kentfield fire marshal has informed the district that all interior doors with automatic door closures must remain closed at all times, except when accessing the room. This means that any interior door that has an automatic closure may not be propped open.
