Every week, parents receive an email newsletter from one of the first grade lead teachers (Ms. Streelman or Ms. Brasser). Within the newsletter is important information about current and upcoming projects and events, as well as links to the first grade blog.
Parents are expected to read weekly newsletters and check the blog at least once each week.
Questions about individual children or other questions that are not answered on the blog may be directed to Ms. Streelman, the lead teacher in the Moon class, or Ms. Brasser, the lead teacher in the Sun class, as appropriate.
Please know that teachers typically do not read or answer emails after 7PM or before 7AM.
Additionally, emails that are sent during the school day might not be seen until after school, as teachers are not often online during the school day (the first grade day is too busy for much “screen time”!)
If you have an emergency need or question during the school day, calling the school office is the best option–they can get a message to a teacher during the school day.
For example, if your child’s dismissal plans change, the teachers will not likely see an email about this during the school day. It would be best to contact the school office in this situation. The main office can be reached at 201-653-5548.
