Plainview-Old Bethpage E-mail To Teacher Protocol
E-mail is a useful way of contacting teachers; however the medium has limitations. Teachers are frequently unable to read their e-mail during their teaching day, during vacations and on weekends; therefore this cannot be the primary method of communication with staff. It is the district’s expectation that all e-mails will be responded to within two (2) work days.
Many teachers prefer person to person telephone communication. We therefore request that you include a telephone number in your e-mail so that teachers have the option of getting back to you by phone. If a message requires a prompt response or is of a critical nature, please call the main office of your child’s school and leave a message with someone in that office.
Please Keep in Mind:
· E-mails should not be used for same day messages such as requests for assignments for an absent student, or changes in transportation plans.
· E-mail is not an official document and so may not be used for absence notes, changes in pickup, playdates, etc.
· Extensive comments from teachers should not be expected in an e-mail communication as these are more properly obtained through the regular channels of telephone calls, parent conferences and report cards.
