PARENT’S RESPONSIBILITIES

 

The staff strives to conduct all school activities, both in and out of the classroom, in accordance with Christian principles as defined by the Seventh-day Adventist Church and interpreted by the administration and it is their desire that the home and the school cooperate in maintaining these standards.

Parental involvement in school program is encouraged and appreciated in the following areas:

           

            * Home and School Association

            * Work Bees

            * Field trip supervision & drivers

 

We invite parents to visit the school and converse with teachers regarding their children's schoolwork after school hours.  Please respect the obligations of the teachers and do not disturb class or recess time with phone calls or personal visits except in pre-arranged or emergency cases.

We are interested in parents' comments and suggestions and appreciate communication that helps us to help the students better.  When conflicts arise, let your children know that we are doing our best in their behalf, even if it seems unfair at times.  Then discuss your concerns or issues with the teacher first rather than with the children or anyone else.  Unfortunately, we do make mistakes, but we cannot right a wrong that we do not perceive or understand.

 

It is understood that the student will come to school with supplies on the first day of school.  A complete list of required supplies may be obtained at pre-registration or registration.  Replenishing of supplies throughout the year is also the parent's responsibility.

 

Parents should provide a place and time for study of homework as deemed necessary by the individual teachers.  The parent and the student should communicate with the teachers regarding any time the student has missed school or in other ways may have incurred homework so that it may be taken care of promptly.  The teacher will provide a list of assignments on a routine basis.

Parents must call in to the school office by 8:30 a.m. to report (via the answering machine or school secretary) If their child will not be in school that day and give the reason for the absence or tardy.

 

Parents must sign in their students when tardy and sign the student out if the child must leave early.
