Do you post memos with important information, but find that parents do not read them? All too often, teachers post information about important dates, class field trips, and reminders to bring materials to school, only to have parents miss out on important and necessary information.
While this can be frustrating, it can be helpful to remember that parents often have a lot on their minds between their jobs and their families. In the business of morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up, memos can be easily overlooked.
Making a few simple changes to the way that you send communication can help ensure that your important reminders do not get missed and that parents are in the loop of communication.
