We realize that communication can be complex and it is sometimes difficult to be on top of all the schedule quirks that happen in the daily life of a high school student. In order to help manage those essential communications, we would like to ensure that we have the following information from each parent or guardian:
A phone number which is usually answered and/or which has voicemail that is frequently checked.
An email address which is checked daily or frequently.
A phone number which accepts text messages.
Please make every effort to provide the school with current and accurate phone information any time there is a change to ensure that you do not miss important information. If you have changes, please call the front office at 947-0313 and your information will be updated.
