Messaging

Tampa Prep communicates to our parents primarily via email. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IS UP TO DATE IN ORDER FOR YOU TO RECEIVE IMPORTANT COMMUNICATIONS FROM THE SCHOOL.

Parents receive weekly messages from School Administrators and an eNewsletter on Thursdays. TPPA (Tampa Prep Parents Alliance) also communicates by email and parents receive periodic messages for all-school and grade-specific volunteer opportunities, plus general meetings and other informational programs. If you do not receive these emails, please make sure your email address is accurate in your My BackPack profile. If you continue to have problems, contact Bonnie Warfel at bwarfel@tampaprep.org.
