The classroom phone number is 360-546-9055. We ask that you use this number only in cases of emergency or when you urgently need to speak to a CDP teaching staff person, since answering the phone in the classroom pulls the attention of the teacher away from the many children in his or her care. You can leave written messages for teachers in their mailboxes, which are located in the CDP front office.
