Electronic Devices Reminder: Students are reminded that electronic devices of any kind are not to be brought to school for entertainment purposes.  Please note that these devices may be confiscated.  Unless parents have signed the Digital Citizenship form, these devices cannot be used in class.  The use of personal electronic equipment for "educational reasons" while at school is the philosophy for the appropriate use of personal electronic devices, and thus the Digital Citizenship contract.  It is acknowledged that some of you have cell phones, however please note, these must be turned off during the school day.  If parents need to get in contact with students during the school day, because it is of an urgent matter, they are to make contact through the office.  If you have questions regarding this policy, please contact our school administration.  If you require a Digital Citizenship form, these contracts can be picked up at the office OR you can download a form from this link Digital Citizenship Letter + Form/Contract

Email contact. In our continuing efforts to reduce paper usage, we send out newsletters and notices electronically via email to parents.  In order for us to place you on our distribution list, please make sure your email address is updated and current in our system.  We usually do this near the beginning of the year when we ask you to review the demographic information sent home.  Thank you.
