Messages for Students 

Messages will be accepted for students in an emergency situation only. We strive to keep classroom disruptions to a minimum. Previous scheduled appointments and commitments should be communicated through agendas, notes, or emails.

When your child's phone buzzes or beeps in their pocket or bag during class time- their focus and learning is interrupted.  They begin to think more about the message than their learning.  Please support them to be engaged and learning.  Please send messages at lunch rather than interrupt learning.

Student Phone 

To ensure students are able to communicate with their parents, our student phone is available before school, during lunch hour and after school. However, we strongly recommend all social arrangements for children be agreed upon prior to the day, to avoid limited access for priority calls.  Students are asked to be respectful of our school environment and stop to make phone calls on their personal devices.  They are not to walk the hallways talking on their phones.  Please help them to make good decisions. 

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. ​​​​
