Communication between School and Home
Student Agenda Books
Communication between school and home is very important! We want to work in a partnership with parents / guardians / families to support student learning.The student agenda book is provided to all Grade 1 to 4 students to assist with communication. It is expected that the agenda book will be used to inform parents about classroom events and homework items as well as suggestions for support at home. It is also an opportunity for parents to inform teachers and ask questions. It is expected that parents will review the agenda book at the end of each day and sign or initial it. Teachers will check the agenda in the morning for any notes from parents and also initial these items. Of course other means of communication such as voicemail, e-mail and appointments are also available.
Teachers also provide information for parents and guardians through the use of a classroom or team website. Teachers
will communicate with you and include the link to their website early in September. Please ensure you take time to look at this website for important information about school and classroom happenings. Additionally, our website contains important information for parents. The website is updated regularly with school newsletters and other important school news.
Parent/Guardian Email Address
It is very important that the school have a current email address for parents/guardians on file at the school. Many
messages from the teacher and the school office are sent to parents/guardians using email. Please ensure your email
address is up-to-date with the school office.
Please make any arrangements with your child in advance, regarding different information for after school (such as different place to go after school, not going on the bus, etc.) before your child goes to school. We cannot interrupt classes for student phone calls unless it is an emergency. Calls will be forwarded to their teacher’s voice mail.
With regard to cell phones, we understand why parents may want their children to have a cell phone for safety and we
want to support that need while still providing the best learning environment for students. During the day, when students
are at school, they have access to teacher support and with the permission of a teacher, the use of classroom phones
when necessary. Parents may also leave messages or make contact through school phones. If you feel the need for your
child to bring a cell phone to school, please contact the school administration to discuss this arrangement.
