Emergency telephone numbers
Schools and daycare centers must be able to reach you in an emergency. Give the school your cell phone number where you can be reached during the day, so they can call you if your child gets sick or hurt. If your cell number changes, tell the school right away.
During the first week of school, your child should have a name tag with:
- Parents ’ names
- Cell phone number
- Bus number
Check your child’s school folder every day
Communication with the teacher is very important. A Home/School Communication Folder will come home everyday. Important school info be in this folder. Your child’s homework will also be in this folder. Check the folder every night. Return the folder to school every day.
Class Field Trips/Permission Slips
Sometimes your child’s class may go on a field trip. Permission slips will be sent home before each trip. Fill out the permission slip and send the required money with it in the school folder before the deadline. If you cannot afford to pay for the field trip, you can apply for the money from the school’s parent/teacher association (PTA). Let your child’s teacher know.
