Reminders for Parents and Students

Backpacks, hats, and hoods are not to be worn in the building during school hours for safety purposes. Also, please note that our new main entrance is the only entrance that students are to enter in the morning. Cell phones need to be turned off and stored in lockers, with the exception of during passing time and lunch for our HS students. Moreover, all teachers offer office/tutoring hours; please click here for a list of days and times and encourage your student(s) to take advantage of this valuable opportunity.

Communication Process

Questions, concerns, and ideas routinely arise during the school year. This outline is provided to assist in communication with the appropriate person.

Step 1: Questions or concerns regarding instructional practices should go to the teacher first. A discussion should be scheduled with the principal if you still have questions after talking with the teacher.
Step 2: If applicable, items not resolved in Step 1 should be directed to the administrator or director who has responsibility in the area of concern.
Step 3: A conference with the superintendent is most appropriately held if questions or concerns have not been adequately addressed at earlier levels.
Step 4: The final level of contact with the district about a question or concern is the Board of Education.
