As advised on the school calendar issued to all parents on Thursday 5th September parent teacher meetings will take place during the week commencing Monday 21st October. The school will close @ 2.45pm on Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd October for pupils in 1st – 6th class as the majority of meetings will take place on these evenings. The bus will collect pupils travelling by bus @ 2.45 on these days. A reminder was given in the Communication Letter issued on Thursday 26th September. Communication Letters and the School Calendar can be located on the school website, www.leitrim-ns.ie, under the communication tab.
Every parent will be allocated a max of 10 minutes per meeting. It is very important to avoid long delays for others that every parent/guardian obeys this 10 minutes per meetings. Please knock on the classroom door and enter at your appointed time. Should either a parent or teacher require longer than 10 minutes another meeting will be scheduled. Your child’s teacher will be in contact with you regarding meeting times at a later stage.
Children cannot attend parent teacher meetings and should not be on school grounds or in the school building during these meetings. Children will not be supervised and are your responsibility. Please make alternative arrangements for your children during your parent teacher meeting times. Parents meeting the Junior and Senior Infant teachers are asked to use the Infant door. Parents meeting all other teachers are asked to enter the school via the door with the railing and not via the main door.
As Ms Quinn and Mrs Griffin are job sharing this year both teachers will be available to meet parents on Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd October. If you cannot attend a meeting on these days you will meet with one teacher only, the teacher working on the day of your meeting.
Teachers are co-ordinating with each other regarding times so that if you have to meet more than one teacher you should be able to do this on one day.
As previously advised, if you wish to meet with your child’s teacher, outside of the scheduled annual parent teacher meetings, please contact the school to make an appointment. Likewise, if a teacher wishes to speak to a parent/guardian he/she will telephone for an appointment. School Homework Journals are an important part of the home school communications. Please use the journal for notes to teachers. Teachers will do likewise. You can also telephone the school and leave a message with the school secretary.
