School security and student safety are of utmost importance. Visitors must report to the security vestibule in the lobby, leave a photo ID, sign in and obtain a visitor's pass.
If you have any concerns with respect to school, please do not hesitate to contact the teacher by sending an email, leaving a message with office personnel, or writing a note. No phone calls to the classrooms during school hours are permitted. If you feel it necessary to contact Dr. Licato regarding your child, we ask that you adhere to professional courtesy and speak to your child's teacher first.
The primary purposes of homework are to reinforce skills and/or content being taught in class, to allow students to do independent research, and to pursue projects which do not lend themselves to a classroom setting. Homework is considered a necessary part of the learning process and a legitimate demand on the non-class time of students. Your child's teacher will discuss homework policy at Open House.
