School Telephone Use

We value student learning time and wish to avoid interrupting student learning during school time. However, students have access to a telephone in the office for all emergencies or should they need to call their parents. We encourage students to leave their cell phones at home. If it is necessary for a student to have a cell phone at school, it is expected that the phone will be turned off and remain in the student’s backpack. If parents need to reach their child, they should contact the office who will give the message to the child or ask the child to come to the office to speak to the parent. 

School Profile

​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. ​​​​
