Communication

 Communication

General Information/Questions – During the course of the year, questions and concerns may arise.  We encourage parents to communicate directly with the most appropriate staff member who may best address those questions/concerns.  We invite you to contact the administration or individual teachers and let us know how we can help.
 
 
20 Alert – 20 Alert is an e-mail alert and news system that provides parents with the most current news and information that pertains to the school and district.  You will automatically receive bulletins via e-mail, etc. from schools in which you do have students enrolled. If you are not receiving these alerts, please contact the help desk at help@asd20.org.
                       
Telephone/Cell Phone Usage – Students who need to phone a parent during school hours must do so through the office in the presence of a staff member and with their supervising teacher’s permission.
 
If it is necessary for your child to use an electronic communication devise before or after school, it must remain turned off and in the child’s backpack during school hours.  The school does not take responsibility for loss, damage, or theft of cell phones.  This policy applies for all school related events (i.e. field trips, clubs, school dances, etc.). If cell phones are used during the school day they will be held in the office until parents pick them up.
 
Telephone calls will not be put through to classrooms during the school day.  Office personnel are happy to forward a message to your child should it be required.
 
Red Communication Folders – To keep you up-to-date with school events, notices will be sent home with your student regarding homework, special assignments, field trips, classroom/school activities, lunch menus, school/teacher newsletters, and school forms in the red folders. Red Folders are sent home on Thursdays.  This folder is designed for you to find all informational items that need to be reviewed in one place and to return needed items in the same folder.
