E-mail Communication with Staff:
Home and School Communication
Bloomingdale Public Schools recognize the importance of good communication between parents and their child’s teachers. Parents may call the Main Office of any school and leave a non-urgent message for faculty members, or they may choose to contact a teacher directly via district email.
Email has become the most expedient method to contact someone, and therefore, the district requests that parents consider the following guidelines when attempting to contact a district teacher.
· Email should be used to communicate messages that don’t require an immediate response.
· Occasionally, issues with the district file server may delay emails from being sent or received by the teacher. Please allow 24 hours to elapse before making follow-up contact.
· Teachers may or may not access email on weekends or school holidays. A parent should expect an answer to an email sent on a Friday the next school day.
· It is sometimes very difficult to interpret tone in an email. Please state your question clearly and respectfully to alleviate any misunderstandings.
· Please make every effort to work out concerns with a personal meeting whenever possible. A two-way dialogue in person can often solve a problem more effectively.
Please notify the Main Office if your email address changes at any time during the course of the school year.
Thank you for your cooperation.
