Emergency School Closings

In the event of an early dismissal, teachers refer to the School Information Sheets. If there are any changes to this information, please contact your child’s teacher and the main office as soon as possible.

Global Connect

Global Connect is a communication system that allows us to contact families about school delays, closings, and emergencies.  This automated telephone service will automatically call the primary phone number that you registered with the school to inform you of a change in the daily school schedule.  Please make every effort to keep the main office informed of any change to this primary telephone number, as it will be the emergency contact number we use for Global Connect.
