Attention parents:  

Please take a few minutes to add your child's campus phone number as a contact in your cell phone.  This will help you identify incoming calls quickly and will prevent the Unknown caller ID from appearing with some cell providers. 

Campus phone numbers are:  
Carthage High School--903-693-2552
Carthage Junior High--903-693-2751
Baker-Koonce Intermediate School--903-693-8611
Libby Elementary--903-693-8862
Carthage Primary School--903-693-2254  

Also, if you block the automated attendance calls from your phone, you are also blocking the main campus number.  This will prevent you from receiving any phone calls from the campus, including calls from the nurse, or any emergency calls.  You may opt out of the automated attendance phone calls by pressing 5, but if you do, you are also preventing any automated calls that could announce school closures due to weather or any other type of emergency call.

Finally, if you change your cell number throughout the year, please be sure and update that information with your campus office staff so they may update their records. This information helps not only the office staff, but also the school nurse and transportation staff. Thank you for your cooperation.  If you have any questions, contact your campus or Technology Director Annette Johnson at 903.694.7550.
