Parents are encouraged to first contact their child's teacher to ask questions or share concerns regarding their experiences with their student's education.  Your child's teacher has the closest contact with students and are best able to address individual concerns regarding their child and the overall learning environment. 

If you still have a concern or question, the school administration would be the next point of contact.
