  • The district has upgraded to an online emergency contact update form.  We will not be sending paper copies the first day of school.  This should make verifying the information easier.  We are requiring that this information is verified for every student, before August 27th.  You may verify the information now for the upcoming school year.  All parents/guardians must verify and submit this form, even if there are no changes, so that we know you have reviewed the data we have on record.
