ACCURATE & UPDATED INFORMATION: Parents should inform the school when there is a change in address or telephone number. The school sends important information by mail. If the school does not have a correct address, this information may not reach a student’s home. It is imperative that we have a correct phone number in case of an emergency. All students must have an emergency contact number on file in the main office.
