New school phone numbers All of our schools and district offices are getting new phone numbers and phones, as part of a phone system upgrade paid for by Bond Measures I & L. Some schools have already received their new numbers, others will get them in early 2018. Principals will be sharing phone information with their schools. Schools will have a main phone number, and teachers and staff will have extensions. When you call a school, you will be able to use a directory to search for the person you want to find. Old numbers will forward all calls to the new numbers through the end of this school year.
