FORWARD

The purpose of a student-parent handbook is to communicate to the students and parents a set of rules and regulations designed for the benefit of the entire school environment.  While it would be impossible to mention every rule and regulation, the administration has attempted to provide the most important information.

If you have questions concerning school policies or procedures, please call the school office (233-7917).  We take this opportunity to thank both the students and parents for their cooperation and support.
