Contains more consistent information; serves as a repository of reference material for parents and houses the MM calendar.

Used very infrequently, but once in a great while, there is information that we want directly in your hands.
Subscribe to the Remind Emergency Group
This year, we are only using Remind to send out emergency information. Communication will be limited to information about emergency drills or an actual emergency situation. If you would like to subscribe to receive emergency Remind messages, there are two different options below. Either will work with a smartphone.
If you signed up last year, you do need to sign up again as I have to clear the subscriptions each summer (as to ensure the parents of our recent graduates don't continue to receive text messages).
