Communication Between Home and School

We believe ongoing communication between home and school is vital for optimal student success.

The school and school council cooperate to email a weekly update each Sunday to all of our families via School
Messenger. This update will include information about what is happening at the school as well as upcoming
events.

Classroom teachers will also communicate day to day information such as what has been happening in class,
upcoming activities, homework, and reminders via School Messenger. Teachers welcome emails from parents,
and this is usually the best way to contact teachers. Teachers will inform parents of their email address at the
beginning of the school year and they can also be accessed on our school website. It is also possible to phone
the school for more immediate concerns.

Report cards are sent home in January and June each year and there are conferences planned for all students in
September, November and March. Meetings can also be arranged at other times of the year. Information about
other opportunities to share student learning will be shared once plans are finalized.

It is important to note that teachers cannot accept phone calls while they are teaching and they often do not have a chance to check their email during school hours.  They do check their email at least daily and will respond to any inquiries within 24 hours.
