    Attendance:
    Please try to have your child attend every class. However, if your child is showing any sign of sickness please keep them home. This is especially important if the student has difficulty communicating that they don't feel well. If your child is absent, please notify their sub school office immediately. Please notify me by email after you have notified the sub school office.
    Communication:
    Communication between parents and teachers is very important. Please know that I am willing to communicate with you about your student as much as you feel necessary, whether it be daily, weekly, monthly, etc. The best way to contact me is through email but please feel free to call and leave messages about more pressing matters. All students will receive a communication sheet each day after class describing classroom performance.
