Parent Communication

Questions and Concerns

Parents who have questions and/or concerns are requested to resolve it at the most appropriate and immediate level. For typical classroom matters, the following procedures should apply in order as needed:

  • Step 1- The parent discusses the matter with the teacher.
  • Step 2- The parent and teacher meet with the principal if the matter is not resolved in step 1.
  • Step 3- Those matters which cannot be resolved at the school level are referred to the NC: Fort Bragg District Superintendent's Office, 910-907-0200.


These procedures follow the correct chain-of-command/line of authority from teacher to principal to superintendent and focus on resolution at the lowest level. Parents are encouraged to seek immediate resolution of problems. Prompt action can frequently prevent complications and more serious problems later on.

Parent-Teacher Conferences

Parent-teacher conferences are held at the end of the first grading period. Report cards are distributed to parents during the conference. Conferences to discuss concerns, questions, and student progress may be scheduled at any time during the school year. Parents are encouraged to contact their child's teacher as soon as questions arise. Requests for conferences may also be left at the school office for delivery to the teacher.

Telephone Messages

You can contact the school by calling the school front office. If the office staff members are occupied and do not answer the telephone, you can leave a voicemail, and your call would be returned in a timely manner.

Teachers

To avoid disrupting instructional time, only emergency messages will be delivered to teachers in classrooms. All other messages will be placed in teachers' boxes or sent to the teacher via email, which they may be able to receive during the "Specials" period or at lunch. To ensure the teacher receives the message, please call by 10 a.m. to allow the school office ample time to send the message. In addition, the school intercom system will not be used to deliver messages to students or to check your child out of the classroom unless there is an emergency approved by an administrator.

Students

Due to classroom transitions throughout the school day, it is not always possible to relay phone messages to students. To avoid disrupting instructional time, only emergency messages will be delivered directly to classrooms. All other messages will be sent to the homeroom teacher via email. The school office cannot guarantee delivery of phone messages to students received after 1 p.m. Please provide your child with transportation/pick-up instructions prior to start of school.
