If you need to talk to us for any reason, please call for an appointment, send a note, or an email and we will get back in touch with you. Please do not try to reach us during class time unless it is an emergency.
Leave a message with the receptionist, and we will call you back as soon as possible. We prefer to have conferences at a scheduled time in order to be fully prepared and to give our undivided attention to your concerns. We want to have quality time with your son and would like to have quality time talking to you as well.
We are interested in your concerns and are very eager to work with you but have found that carpool is not the best time to have a conversation. We can more easily respond to a note.
We will post a weekly blog and/or a monthly calendar of events on the class website in order to keep you well informed. Please print this information and post it on your refrigerator so that your son does not miss any special events.
Two parent-teacher conferences are scheduled throughout the year. The conferences last about fifteen minutes and will give us an opportunity to discuss your son’s progress at school. Our first conference is scheduled in October. If your son is experiencing difficulty in any area, we will bring this to your attention so we can work together to insure the best possible school experience.
Change of Address
If you have a change of address, phone number, or email at home or work, please notify your son’s teacher and the school office as soon as possible. It is important that all records stay current and accurate. It is essential that we have up to date information and are able to reach you at all times, and especially in the event of an emergency. When emailing, please email BOTH teachers.
Confidential Pickup Information
If for some reason your child is not to have contact with a particular adult, the school must have a court order on file stating this information. This information will be shared only on a need to know basis. We monitor this very carefully, but it must be official for us to act accordingly.
It is very helpful if we are informed of any significant change at home that may effect your child such as the hospitalization of a family member, birth of a sibling, death of a pet, house guests such as grandparents, etc. This information will help us meet your son’s needs in very specific ways. We will treat sensitive information with the utmost confidentiality.
Safety is always a top priority. We are fortunate to have one of the safest locations in the city in the event of severe weather. All students and school employees go to an assigned area in the basement of Second Presbyterian Church when a storm warning is sounded and will remain there until the danger has passed or a student is picked up by his parent. If this warning should sound during carpool, carpool will halt and all students will be escorted to the basement. You are encouraged to join us in the basement for your safety until the danger has passed.
