Each grade level uses monthly newsletters as well as the service Remind 101 to quickly send out texts or emails to parents to remind them of upcoming events or assignments. In addition, the school has a website that lists all important information that parents might need. Conferences are available upon request or at scheduled times throughout the year.
Approach to addressing and preventing bullying Our school has a zero tolerance on bullying and has strategically planned events throughout the year to help prevent bullying.
