Communication is key
Our staff welcomes open and regular communication with parents. Communication is essential to effective educational programs; thus, it is important for parents to keep in close contact with their child’s teacher concerning academic progress. Please do not hesitate to keep the school aware of events that may be impacting your child’s educational experience. If you would like to speak with a teacher by phone, please call the office to leave a voice mail message; you may also email your child’s teacher. Your call or email will be returned as soon as possible. Throughout the year, if concerns and questions arise about classroom incidents, homework, academic progress, etc. a parent’s first contact should be with their child’s teacher.
Newsletters and updates from the school office will be sent home via email. Parents who need to receive a hard copy of information should contact the school office. Information relative to our PTL will also be directed to you throughout the year via email. Parents can also obtain information from the Penn-Delco School District’s web site at www.pdsd.org, as well as the school web page, school Twitter page (@ParksideES), and teacher communications. To ensure receipt of school and district news it is imperative to update the office immediately with changes to email addresses or phone numbers.
