    Contact Information

    It is important that we have current contact information for our families. This allows us to let you know of upcoming events and school emergencies. Addresses ensure that you receive timely mailings and telephone numbers are essential for school alert telephone messages as well as strong home-school communication.


    At the beginning of the school year, we will be sending home an Emergency Contact Form. Please complete the form and send it in. Even if you have done this before, we need a new form every year. If your contact information changes, please call the school at any time.
