Every effort is made to protect the instructional time from outside interruptions. Emergency telephone calls and personal visits with students are permitted only if approved by an administrator. The teacher has a responsibility to all children in the classroom from the time of their arrival to the end of the day and cannot stop instruction to talk with parents or visitors. If you have a need to talk to the teacher, please call and make an appointment or leave a message on voice mail or email. Classroom observations must be arranged in advance, require 24 hour notice and will be limited to 30 minutes.
