Since school is closed and resources have been placed online, parents may have more questions than usual regarding their child and school. Parents should continue to follow the same best practices when communicating about their child.

If a parent has a concern about their child or the online resources available, the parent should contact their child’s teacher first. The teacher knows your child best and may be able to offer additional guidance.

If a parent needs information that the teacher cannot provide, the parent should reach out to the principal.

The assistant superintendent or executive director of elementary or secondary education is the next contact, followed by the superintendent. The final step is to contact a School Board representative.

“It’s always important for parents to build a positive relationship with their child’s teachers, and it’s never too late to do that,” said WCS Superintendent Jason Golden. “Especially during this uncertain time, if a parent has a question, it’s best to always start by communicating with your child’s teacher first.”
