Communication with Families

Home-School Communication
Parent-teacher communication is a partnership requiring each to fully inform the other of the child’s progress.  This partnership has a significant influence on student success.  Therefore, we encourage on-going communication to meet all student needs.  The forms of communication which teachers use may include newsletters, notes, flyers, assignment sheet/pads, weekly or daily folders, conferences, phone calls, progress reports, and report cards.  Additional information is available through our website, www.south.capital.k12.de.us and our monthly newsletter, the South Dover Newsletter. All attendance, early dismissal and any  transportation communication can be emailed to southattendance@capital.k12.de.us. 


Parents are urged to contact the teacher whenever the need arises via a note or a phone call or email.  Parent conferences can be scheduled as needed with the teachers at a mutually convenient time.  Parent conferences are scheduled with all parents at the end of the first marking period.  Attendance at these conferences is highly encouraged. Parents can request a schedule change if the assigned time is inconvenient

At all grade levels, conferences may be requested by the parent, teacher, school counselor, case manager, or the principal.  We strongly encourage our parents to visit South Dover Elementary School early in the school year.  You may arrange for classroom observations by calling the office or contacting the classroom teacher to determine the time and date of the observation.
