Chain of Communication Guidelines
When a problem concerns your child and the work in school, the best person to see is the classroom teacher. An appointment to see an elementary teacher may be made by e-mailing or phoning the teacher through the Elementary Office.
Problems of a personal nature or questions about a student’s program, overall potential and progress, may be discussed with the teacher or the counselor. Direct communication is appreciated and the easiest way to clear up problems.
If the matter and concern remains unsolved, parents may wish to speak with the Principal or Assistant Principal. Appointments can be scheduled by contacting the Elementary Office.
We want to promote communication between parent and teacher but we need to be mindful of the following to allow for the smooth operation of the school.
Parents should not interrupt the classroom during the school day. Teachers want to give parents their undivided attention; your concern or issue is important to them. However, that is not possible when they are working with their classes, responsible for all students.
We want to promote communication between home and school but it needs to be orderly to maximize the teacher’s responsibilities to the entire class.
To communicate with the teacher please do one of the following:
- Send a note with your child or write in the communication book.
- Leave a phone message with the elementary office for a teacher to call.
- Make an appointment to speak with the teacher.
- Send the teacher an e-mail.
- Speak to them on the school grounds at entrance or dismissal if time and the situation permits.
