Wednesday Folders - these are folders that go home weekly with communications from school and class work that your child has completed. Folders should be returned on Thursdays for use all year.
Blackboard 24/7 - Each classroom teacher or grade level team has a BlackBoard 24/7 site where information specific to that class or grade level is posted including homework guidelines, long term projects, upcoming field trips and grade level events, and learning website links for student.
Parent-Teacher Conferences - Teachers and parents should schedule a 15-20 minute conference during the 1st semester to discuss student academic and social/ emotional progress. Due to the Nov 8th election (formerly one of the conference days), the parentteacher conference may be scheduled before or after school on a different day during 1st semester.
Interim and Quarterly Progress Reports - The quarterly progress report is sent home with students approximately 2 weeks after the end of the quarter. Interim reports are a single sheet that are sent home in the middle of 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarters
Additional meetings between parents and teachers can occur outside of the regular parent teacher conference format
Email and Phone - Parents and teachers should communicate through email and phone as needed. Please allow 24 hours during school days for teachers to respond to email. Teachers do not have time during the instructional day to respond to email. In emergencies, please contact the main office at (703) 503-3700 to leave a message for the teacher.
