Information and Questions

Who do I call at my child's school?

All schools have a website with up to date information regarding staff, and what's going on within the school.

Some schools also have parent led Facebook pages that are quite informative and help you stay up to date on what things are happening in the school. You can also ask any questions you may have to the group. You may need to get invited to these groups or ask to be added.

If you need general information you can call the Administrative Assistants, they know the ins and outs of what goes on at the schools.

If it is something involving your child specifically you can talk to their classroom teacher. They will often not take calls throughout the teaching day, but hopefully they will get back to you if you leave a message. Sometimes it might be best if you email them and set up a time for a phone conversation or an in-person meeting. Usually in the beginning of the year teachers will pass out a communication plan that will outline the best ways to get in touch with them.

If what you need to talk about is a bigger topic or issue, contact the Principal, or the Vice Principals. They can be contacted through the Administrative Assistant and by email as well.
