Communication Expectations

You can expect the most frequent form of communication to be the daily HLO that goes home with important dates and homework expectations. I will not rate on T,W,Th due to OG groups ending as dismissal begins.

I also update my website each week with important information. Sometimes more frequently if needed.

I will email you if an immediate update arises or there is a special need but it is not my primary way to communicate. If there is a reminder for your champion specifically they will have a bright cardstock band stapled to their bookbag or there will be a comment on the HLO.

Once you have read the newsletter, my website, the HLO-, and asked your champion, if you still have questions, you may contact me. I keep these forms of communication up to date to avoid answering the same questions multiple times so thanks in advance for protecting your time and mine.

Third grade has a weekly newsletter with all academic information as well as upcoming events and advertisements for camps, events, etc. offered by the school. This newsletter is linked in my weekly post.

If you email Monday-Thursday, you can expect a response back within 24 school hours (3 days, typically sooner).

If you email Friday after noon-Sunday evening, I will respond in the order they are received beginning Monday on my planning. I try not to check email on the weekends and at night so I can enjoy personal time with my family. Thank you for respecting this.

If you need to call me, you may call the school and I will return your call during lunch or planning as I am able. Please remember students are in my room all day so I am not always able to have an open conversation during the school day. When I am able to call you back, it is possible you will have your children with you during dismissal for example. Please do not contact me on my personal phone number. This is not a method I have shared with families for a reason.

Thanks in advance for your understanding and proactivity,
