Positive Home-School Communication

Atkinson staff takes pride in responding to parent & guardian concerns in a timely and respectful manner. When a school problem arises that relates to your child, the following process should be followed:

  1. Contact your child's teacher first. Depending on what was shared at home, the teacher will often be able to provide another side of a story that brings about understanding. If a student is having a hard time with content or peers, our teachers are famous for making adjustments to their instruction or management to help students in any way they can.
  2. Contact the principal next. Often, the issue could be a larger one that extends beyond a child's particular classroom. It might be a concern about behavior, communication, curriculum, playground conditions or a number of other bigger issues. The principal can email, talk on the phone or certainly meet in person to share our thoughts on the matter in order to help with the problem.
  3. Consider the next level. If there ever is an issue that cannot be solved at the school level and needs to be brought to the superintendent level, it should be done in collaboration. Over time, there have been problems that required input from the system's leadership and these matters have been worked on together. Attempts to solve a problem should be made at the school level before it's brought to the superintendent or school committee level.

Social media can be an efficient and effective communication tool, however, we ask that you please consider the potentially detrimental effect a particular post could have on students, parents/guardians, staff and/or the school community. Thank you very much for reflecting on this process and for supporting the school in so many ways throughout the year!
