Access Cards

Because of budget constraints we will be charging $5 for any new access cards (after the first one) regardless of the reason.  If you need a new card please remit the $5 fee to your school secretary and we will be happy to provide a new one.


New phones

Each school will have a new phone system when teachers return that will be more functional and less expensive to operate over the long run.  We had several phone systems that were so antiquated we were having trouble finding repair parts.  Your school secretary should be able to give you a 2 minute primer if you’re having trouble with the new system.
