Dear Parents and Guardians:
Summer-time greetings! Many of the back-to-school communications you normally receive at this time of year – including the 2013-2014 School-Year Calendar – are available online. Moving these documents to electronic format saves the School and the environment resources. Please visit the School’s homepage and click the link that says “Back-to-School Messages” in the bottom left corner (www.waldorfgarden.org) in order to obtain these documents. A PDF version of the 2013-2014 School-Year Calendar – complete with beautiful artwork and photographs – can now be printed directly from your home computer.
In the coming days, you will receive by mail your Family Contact Form. The Family Contact Form serves two important purposes:
- It provides vital contact information should the School need to reach you quickly. It also lets us know who your child may leave School with, should you not be available.
- It ensures that our records include your preferred email and that you continue to receive important information from the School electronically.
Please review and update the Family Contact Form and return it to the School today. (If you have no changes, you do not need to return it.)
The online Parent Directory has been updated for the 2013-2014 school year and is available behind the online Parent Portal. You can access the directory and portal by clicking the Parent Login link at the top of the School's homepage (www.waldorfgarden.org). If you do not know your username and password, click the “Forgot your username/password?” link towards the bottom of the screen and follow the instructions. Once inside the Parent Portal, you can also view a short instructional video on how to use the online parent directory as well as how to edit and hide your contact information. Please remember this directory is intended for school community use and should NOT be used for outside distribution or for solicitation purposes.
All handbooks – including the Parent Handbook – are available online under the “Useful Documents, Forms and Websites” page under the “Parents” section, or by clicking here.
If at any point during the year you find you are not receiving School emails, or should you wish to change your contact information, please feel free to contact me at (516) 742-3434 Ext. 311 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. My best wishes to you and your family during these final weeks of the summer vacation.
