Dear Parents & Guardians,
For the safety and well-being of your child it is imperative
that we
have accurate biographical and emergency contact
information on
file for both you and your child. 
All changes of address, phone numbers,
 cell phone numbers,
guardianship and emergency contact persons must
be reported
to your child’s guidance counselor. 
According to the
Chancellor’s Regulations, all changes of
address must be accompanied by a gas, electrical, or water bill. 
 A mortgage statement is acceptable as well.  If you rent and do not
pay utilities, a notarized letter from your landlord is required.  
Additionally, change of guardianship requires a notarized form which
is available at our school. 
Sincerely,
Fern Bren
