Rules for school correspondence

6. Rules for School Correspondence

Whenever there is a need for an informational flyer to go out to the school, the Principal or Assistant Principal MUST approve and initial the flyer first before additional copies are made. Submit the items to be approved in a timely manner to the folder in the office marked "To Be Approved". After review, items will be in the "Approved" folder, if approved or the "To Be Revised" folder if revisions are required. If revisions are made, please resubmit the new version back to the "To Be Approved" folder. It is your responsibility to check those folders regularly if you are awaiting a response.

CLASSROOM E-MAILS - you should designate one room parent to handle communications to the classroom. This person should save the e-mail addresses of the entire class in a group, and send out messages to the class as needs arise through blind CC. It is much easier to correspond and field questions one on one than a confused chain of multiple responses. THE CLASS E-MAILS SHOULD PERTAIN TO SCHOOL ACTIVITIES ONLY AND CANNOT BE USED AS A FORUM FOR PERSONAL BELIEFS OR PERSONAL BUSINESS. PLEASE MODIFY YOUR EMAIL SIGNATURES ACCORDINGLY.

Please use email to send general communication and forward any information sent to you by the Room Parent Coordinator. Sometimes, these emails contain important attachments, which can only be sent by email. PLEASE DO NOT USE SHUTTERFLY FOR GENERAL COMMUNICATION. Calendar events and notifications can be sent by Shutterfly.

IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE A CHILD SPECIFIC ISSUE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR TEACHER DIRECTLY. CLASS EMAILS ARE NOT A FORUM FOR DISCUSSING PERSONAL CONCERNS.
