    Panther Families! It is very important that all contact information in Infinite Campus ("IC") is updated.  If you have moved, changed phone numbers, email addresses, or if you would like to add or remove "emergency contacts" for your student, you need to update that information in IC.  School staff is unable to make these changes for you, as we no longer have that access.  If you have trouble accessing your IC account, we would love to help you get set up or back online.  IC is an incredible tool for Douglas School District families to monitor student grades, attendence and conduct.  Please reach out to us for help and tips.
