  • phone

    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.

    We do not accept phone calls to change a student's dismissal routine.  A note with a parent or guardian signature is required for all dismissal changes.
