Contacting Your Child

You may contact the office and if it is urgent, we can bring a student to the phone. For all other messages, we will notify students at an appropriate break. Direct contact, through cell phone or texting, is prohibited as it interrupts our main business of learning. 

Phone Use (Main Office)

A student phone, located in the main office, is available for student use in the morning before classes start, over the lunch hour, and after school. It is to be used only for unexpected circumstances or urgent situations, and conversations must be brief and to the point. Using the phone during class time is not allowed. 

School Profile

Our school profile includes a dynamic map with our designation area and walk zone.

​Contact Information Updates

Please notify the school office immediately with any changes of address, telephone numbers (home, business and/or cell), email address or emergency contact numbers. It is critical that we have a current record of contact information on file so we can reach you or other emergency contacts. Please also be sure to provide us with a current copy of any custody agreements.​​

Concerns & Complaints

We know that the success of your student is dependent on a strong partnership between families and the CBE. If you have a concern, it can usually be addressed at the classroom level. Your first step is to arrange to speak privately with your child’s teacher. If you feel your issue is still unresolved, please contact your principal. If you and the school are unable to find a resolution, please see our Concerns & Complaints​ page for additional information, including the process to contact your Area Director. ​​​​
