In September 2013, we  implemented a new school notification system called Power Announcement. This notification system is loaded with new features that will make it easier for us to keep in contact with your family.

To guarantee the messaging system is used efficiently, we will need to confirm your contact information is accurate and up-to-date at all times.

Please click on the link below to download the document explaining out new system.
