St. Mary's Elementary School

POLICIES & PROCEDURES:
Telephone Use

As our phone is a business phone, we need to have it free for important incoming and outgoing calls. We therefore discourage pupils from using it. We encourage the older students to show responsibility by letting you know ahead of time their scheduled practice times for sports etc. If practices are changed at the last minute, we will allow the children to inform you. We will not allow calls home to seek permission to go to a friend's home after school. Such arrangements must be made ahead of time.

If an emergency situation arises where you need to get a message to your child or his/her teacher, please call the school and leave your message with the secretary or on the answering machine If you dial in to St. Mary's during the school day and all lines are busy, or if you call before or after school hours, your call will be re-routed to our the school voice mail. If you call during school hours and the matter is an emergency and you get the voice mail, please hang up and try again until you get through.

All parents and visitors to the school must report to the office before going to a classroom. This will eliminate classes being disturbed unnecessarily, and is a safety precaution.
