• TO WHOM SHOULD I DIRECT MY QUESTION OR SUGGESTION?
    The communication protocol helps to promote direct, open and respectful interactions so that problems and concerns can be resolved quickly and effectively. Communication should begin with the staff member closest to the situation, as that person will usually have the most information. At times, additional personnel are required to resolve specific situations.

    Appropriate communication channels for a variety of topics are listed below. The district encourages any and all questions from parents and residents regarding school matters. We also encourage students in grades 9-12 to advocate for themselves by initiating communication with the appropriate teacher or staff member.

    Additional contact information for staff members is in the online staff directory.
