Welcome to the Office of Family and Community Engagement. Communication between school and home, parent and teacher, is very important to us. You may use Parent Portal to follow your child's progress on a daily basis, or use SchoolMessenger to keep informed of school and district announcements via telephone or email. We encourage you to contact our department if we can be of any assistance!
