Chain of Command


When questions, concerns or interests regarding your child's progress or school program arise, please address them promptly by contacting the classroom teacher. Use this directory to look up the Elm teacher you need to contact.

If questions or concerns remain, it is appropriate that you then contact the building principal or assistant principal.

In the event that there are remaining or unresolved questions or concerns, feel free to contact Superintendent of Schools Dr. Nicolas Wade.

For additional information, the District-level organizational chart is available here.

Remember, always contact the teacher first!
