School Registration & Orientation for New Families
Your child's school may need to contact you as a parent or guardian immediately in case of an emergency or to convey important school information. Parents must notify the school office in the event of an address or phone number change.
The Bilingual Assistance is a translation and interpretation service provided for parents and school staff to overcome language barriers and improve communication. The purpose is to engage families in the educational process and activities in a meaningful way. Interpretation services are provided to families of English learners at no cost.
