Phone System Upgrade
McGuffey School District is currently in the middle of a phone system upgrade that will consolidate numbers and cut costs.  We currently are running a beta version of the program and expect to have the final version of the program in place by the beginning of August.  Please be patient during our upgrade process as we expect to have some minor glitches as we cut over from the old system.  Thank you for your understanding while these improvements are being made.
