These contacts are who we would contact in case of an accident or injury when you can't be contacted. It is also important that you have a designated person or network available for your child in case of early school closings or inclement weather. If your child has a medical condition i.e., diabetes, epilepsy, asthma, acute allergies (food, insect bites, animals), or physical disability, please inform the school to ensure a safe, healthy school environment.
