Other School to Home Communications

In an attempt to provide as much and as effective of communication possible, we a variety of digital platforms, as well as occasional paper copies. We encourage families to find ways to engage with our school happenings and stay informed.

Heather Facebook, Twitter, Shutterfly

  • Heather School’s Heather Facebook page, Heather Twitter page, and Heather Instagram page, provides the school community regular postings of either school reminders, or with highlights of some of our Heather “happenings”. It is a great way to “tell our story” and give parents an inside peek of the many things being taught and experienced at Heather. Learn more here about our social media guidelines and parent permission form.

Teacher communications

  • Teachers each have their own methods for communication, which include classroom blogs and/or Shutterfly classroom pages, websites, digital newsletters, emails or paper copied newsletters.

  • We have many languages, other than English, spoken in the homes of our students. We do our best to find ways to communicate with parents who have limited English. Spanish interpretation services are provided to parents at parent/teacher conferences, SST and IEP meetings. Resources are limited in being able to provide written translations with regularity.
