Please be aware of a change in procedure for the notification of disciplinary consequences and attendance concerns. Notification for disciplinary consequences and attendance concerns will be done electronically and available to parents through the Community Portal.

Any infraction requiring an out-of-school suspension will still warrant written notification. Attendance letters will also be posted on the community portal. If you are not already signed up for the Community Portal, you may apply on the district website under “Parent Links.” The keyword is “comets.”
