KEEPING IN TOUCH - HOME AND SCHOOL COMMUNICATION

Technology has brought new meaning to the phrase "Keeping In Touch." Over the past few years, the Quakertown School District has instituted a new telephone system and an Internet web site to enhance our home and school communication. Today, teachers and parents are just a few buttons away on the telephone or a simple mouse click away on the computer. Listed below are procedures for parents to use when the need arises to communicate with school personnel.

OMMUNICATIONS WITH THE SCHOOL OFFICE BY TELEPHONE

215-529-2410

Parents may contact the school office directly by dialing our main number at 215-529-2410. In most cases, the school secretary will answer the call personally. During high volume periods, calls may be directed to the secretary's voice mailbox where parents can leave a message and a return call will be made as soon as possible. All requests that need attention before the end of a particular school day should be made through the school office using our main telephone number. In particular, verbal permission for parent transport at the end to the day or a request for homework should always be made through the school office and our main telephone number. In addition, parents should use our main telephone number when there is a need to speak directly with school personnel during the school day. The school office operates each weekday from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm and our main telephone system operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

COMMUNICATING WITH SCHOOL PERSONNEL BY VOICE MAILBOX
215-529-2049

Parents may leave a voice message for school personnel by dialing the district's voice mailbox system at 215-529-2049. When prompted, parents should enter the four-digit extension for the staff member they wish to contact. This method of communication with school personnel should be used when a message or request does not need attention before the end of the school day. The voice mailbox system should not be used to give verbal permission for parent transport, to request homework, or for any other matter that needs attention before the end of the school day. Parents should contact the school office using our main telephone number when they need to speak with school personnel directly. The district's voice mailbox system operates 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

In addition, parents can email school personnel using their home computer.

Open the link on our Quakertown Elementary webpage and sign up to have your email added to our contact list, just click on the link to the Parent Contact List.
