they call you and send e-mails if your child is absent from school sick to check on them-they send out auto messages to inform parents that a child was absent from school that day and to tell parents about any updates.they are a small town school that gives each child devoted attention and involve the parents in every way.Friendly and kind and very supportive.they work hard to help the students acheive and excell. I have twin boys and they both love the school and their teachers :)
