Communication to the parents is not adequate. Email/texts/phone calls should be utilized by teachers/staff to communicate with the parents. Updates to the website would also be great. Parents with new students are not given any information without calling around to numerous people. Student lunch number? 3 phone calls per child. This was never provided in any paperwork, etc. Need to use a bus? Multiple phone calls, a trip to the admin building, and I had to call the bus drivers myself for each child. None of this is well managed. And communication is not sent from the principal to anyone else. Make sure any emails include everyone (teachers/secretaries) that must receive that information. My son's third grade teacher did a great job of communicating, but his fourth grade teacher does not communicate at all. I must initiate all communications by leaving a note with the school secretary. Do not expect the school secretary to be helpful at all. You must pull all information from her by asking very detailed questions. A good attitude and helpfulness should not be expected in her case.
