When families return to Parklands each day, it should be with a similar confidence that they are returning to a familiar place where they can find a sense of belonging, full of familiar sights, stable routines and friendly faces.
Like any family home, Parklands has its own unique culture and rules. These rules help us maintain a culture of care, order and equity for our students and their families. It is important that families become familiar with our culture, be aware of our rules and seek assistance should any aspect of our culture cause hardship. Prompt, polite communication with the college staff will always be the best way to sort out any misunderstandings or difficulties that might arise.
We have a myriad of ways to keep up to date and stay in touch with what is going on at Parklands. Our teachers, teacher aides and administrative staff are always contactable by email for short issues needing clarification or quick communications. However, it is my suggestion that parents get to know their children’s teachers by talking to them face to face as often as possible or at least when concerns need to be raised.
