E-mail Guidelines for Parents

Due to their busy schedules, teachers may not be able to check their email during any given teaching day.  Therefore, email should not be used for messages of a pressing nature, such as requests for  that day's homework, changes in transportation arrangements, etc. If you need a response the same day, you should call or visit the school. 

It may take a day or two to get a response from a teacher, and that response may be a phone call rather than an email. Please include a telephone number in your email should the teacher wish to call you. 

Please be sure to include a specific subject line on your email message, such as 'possible dates for meeting,' or 'birthday party update.' This will help the teacher to distinguish legitimate email from spam.

Teachers may not check email during vacations and on weekends.
  
Email should never be used to convey emergency information.

It is not recommended that email be used to communicate personal or confidential information.

Email is an excellent medium for short notes and requests of a general nature regarding curriculum, classroom policy, or the date of a class event or exam. It can be used, when a concern arises, to arrange a conference or phone call. It is not as useful for long detailed messages pertaining to grades, student progress, or disciplinary matters. These types of inquiries are better handled through traditional channels or phone calls, or conferences at school.

Please do not email and telephone about the same issue. Choose whichever medium is most convenient for you.
