Coding, Standards, and Compatibility
Our web developer since 2004 is Tim Snoots (Snoots Technology Services LLC). Our web site is currently driven by the Drupal 7 CMS and therefore uses modern web standards. The use of modern web standards assures that our site loads fast, looks great, is accessible, and has a stable, consistent appearance in any modern, standards-compliant web browser on any computer platform. This site has been tested with current versions of the Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, and Internet Explorer 8/9 web browsers, and on the Mac, Windows, and Linux platforms.
Efforts have been taken to make this web site accessible to all users including those with disabilities. We believe that our site conforms to the best practice guidelines of both the W3C-WAI's "Web Content Accessibility Guidelines" and also U.S. "Section 508" Guidelines for accessibility.
If you have difficulties using our site with assistive technologies please contact us so we can make improvements and correct the problem.
We respect your privacy and do not collect personally identifiable information (name, email address, or other unique identifier) unless you have knowingly and purposefully provided it to us for a specific purpose. Any information you provide will only be used for the specific purpose stated on the page from which it was collected. If you provide personal information to us, we will never reveal or sell it to a third party.
When browsing our web site your web browser automatically reveals some types of information. While viewing nearly any web site on the web (including ours) the following information is logged by a site's web server:
- Your compute's operating system and web browser versions
- Your computer or router's IP address
- The date and time you accessed the site
- The pages you visit on our web site
- If you clicked a link from another web site to reach ours, then the page that linked to us is logged
The above information may be used to determine site usage patterns that allow us to improve our site but will never be revealed or sold to a third party. This data may also be used to identify abusive visitors or hacking attempts.
If you are concerned about any of the student information listed on our site please contact the Booster President (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Some of the forms and documents on this site are available in the .PDF format for output consistency. To view these documents you may need to install additional software that can open the .PDF format. Adobe Reader is a free .PDF viewing application that is available for download.
This web site uses modern Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) formatting to produce nice looking printed pages.
Band Email Distribution Problems
If you are not receiving our From the Band Room email distributions then spam filtering may be to blame. For most email services (e.g., Yahoo, Comcast, Gmail, AOL, etc.). If you are not receiving our emails please look in your email's "spam" or "junk mail" folders for our messages. If the are marked as spam/junk, simply mark them as "not junk" and then also add our email address to your contacts. Simply adding our list's email address to your online address book will typically prevent our emails from being blocked as spam. If you no longer wish to receive our emails at a particular address then please simply request for the email@example.com us to remove your address.
