Communication between home and school is of prime importance. 

Information regarding your child’s class, policies, activities, testing, student performances and other announcements is essential to healthy participation in our Conn community. The PTA and Conn Administration have developed a number of communication avenues that fit the need for our parents to gain this essential information. Contact the Conn PTA Communications Chair if you have any questions.
