Our school uses the Parent School Messenger Notification System to provide timely communication to parents and staff members on matters such as attendance, general interest activities, and campus and district emergencies. In order to enhance our ability to accurately deliver that information, we kindly request that you create your own contact preference profile using School Messenger’s Contact Manager web site. Contact Manager allows you to control the ways in which you prefer to be contacted. It also works like a mailbox, giving you a place to review messages you may have missed.
