Schools: Staff/Teacher roles

Families,

It is very important that you communicate to your child's teacher and school if your child is registered for a Community School offering. 

  • FH and OC: identify which students need to go to Palisades and which students need to go to Lake Grove with stickers (Palisades or Lake Grove). This is very important to keep consistent communication to all parties.
  • The identification stickers will: 
    • Help Extended Day providers sort to ensure all students are in the right place and right bus. They will also have rosters with student names who are enrolled in classes.
    • Keep bus drivers in communication on who should be where.

Important things to keep in mind:

  • Students enrolled in Sports programs should be at their perspective program school, otherwise, the student will be late for the course.
