Will there be a Cost for the Buzz Book?
For $3.50, you will receive a paper copy of the Buzz Book and access to the Book online. You can pay using PayPal (after confirming) or Cash/Check using the form below. Additional copies are $3.50.
What if I do nothing?
If you are an existing family and you do not confirm your information, or if you are a new family and you do not enter any new information, then the Buzz Book Committee will do it for you. However, if the Committee does it for you, you will not gain access to the online directory nor will you receive a paper copy. Also, since Millard is an ‘opt-out’ district, all of your information will be available online and printed to those who do purchase the Buzz Book, whereas if you validate your own information, you will be given the opportunity to opt-out of printing or online viewing of certain information (for example, an e-mail address). Additionally, validating your own information will allow for quicker online access and print copies of the Buzz Book. Please take a few minutes to confirm/enter your information.
Even if you do not plan on purchasing a Buzz Book, please validate your information!
Is the Information on the Site Secure?
Your privacy is important to us and if there is any information you do not want viewed on the online directory or not published in the paper copy, you will have the opportunity to not display that information within the site. Please keep your data entered on the website, but just choose to ‘opt-out’ of those fields you do not want displayed online or in the paper directory.
The Millard policy indicates that families must have the option to opt-out of the Buzz Book. This means a family is automatically in the directory unless they specifically opt out. If you would like more information about the site security you can view the MembershipToolkit.com privacy and security policy by going to the site below. https://www.membershiptoolkit.com/privacy-policy
