    The automated calls you get from our

    school and/or district are important. Please listen
    to the message. DO NOT CALL THE SCHOOL
    asking what the message was. With close to 400
    students, this is tying up the phone lines that could be 
    needed in an emergency. Automated calls could
    contain information about inclement weather,
    bus problems, or important announcements.

  • Beginning Monday, December 5th, 2016,  we will no longer be able to accept phone calls to change a student's dismissal routine.  A note with a parent or guardian signature will be required for all dismissal changes.  This change will help us to align more closely with Knox County procedures and prevent dismissal confusion for our students.  If you have an emergency change in dismissal, you may fax a written request to the office at 594-5004.  We appreciate your understanding as we continue to work towards a safe and secure dismissal routine.
