Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!

All of this information is available elsewhere on our website, but we have put together a quick reference for parents for these busy weeks at the start of the school year. If you have a question about back-to-school or are having trouble locating information on our website, please use the form below and let us know!

Subscribe or Unsubscribe from school email notification lists

Go to the school website where you would like to subscribe or unsubscribe, click on "Email Notification" and follow the directions posted there. Please note that if you subscribed to a list last year, you remain on it so you do not need to resubscribe. Note also that the middle and high schools offer TWO lists, one for daily notices and the other for important notifications such as announcements about snow days or graduation updates. Parents are strongly encouraged to remain on the latter of the two lists.
