Dear Parents: 

This year the PA is collecting contact information electronically.

In your welcome packets that you received on the first day of school is a 'contact information' sheet. In lieu of completing this form, you can enter your information (name, phone number, address and email address) by clicking on the link below.  

The information that you enter goes directly to a spreadsheet that is only accessible by the PA--your information is not live on the Internet. 

For kindergarten parents who have already entered this information, please edit it to include your child's class code.
This system will help to ensure your information is entered into the database accurately.

Thank you so much!
