You will be emailed directly by teachers and/or staff for specific information as it relates to your student. Official school emails are sent from email@example.com and are the main means for communicating important information in a timely manner. All parents/guardians are added to the FA email list based on the information provided in their Family Portal. Visit RenWeb via our website to make updates to your family’s profile and make sure you receive those important emails.
