Dear Parents and Guardians;
Included in this mailing are what we call demographic sheets for your registered student(s)- this is the pink piece of paper. This is the information that is housed in our Student Management System that helps us to communicate with parents and guardians, as well as other pertinent information about your child. Understandingly, this information is critical to our success as a school. Each year we find ourselves looking at other ways to work differently, and in this case verify and update this information. We also have made some of our goals to streamline the process of communications with parents and students, explore cost saving measures and reduce our carbon footprint.
With this in mind, we ask you to take the following actions:
- Please take a few minutes to review this information on the demographics sheet and verify its accuracy.
- Please make necessary changes directly on the sheet so that when it is returned we can update your information in the system. Please write clearly. If no changes are necessary, please write “OK” on the top of the page.
- Please be sure to provide us with a valid email address. We plan on sending most communications, similar to the PSAT letter enclosed in this mailing, out via email to achieve our goals stated above. We are also planning a newsletter and email blasts for announcements.
- Please have your student return the pink demographic sheet (with or without changes) to his or her grade level administrator’s secretary no later than October 21st, 2016. Failure to do so potentially puts all of us in a situation where miscommunications would be the norm and not the exception.
We do realize there will be occasions where mailings are necessary and when some information simply cannot be communicated via email. We will continue to honor those commitments. However, by taking the steps above, you will be helping us promote 21st century living skills where information can be communicated quickly and easily, keeping all necessary stakeholders informed.
Please help us with achieving our goals of increased communications, exploring cost saving measures and acting responsible to our environment. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the high school and speak with your grade level administrator. Thank you.
