Synthia be careful you don't blanket the school with literature. They will stop reading after the first paragraph. If they have concise, accurate information from you about your child they are more likely to listen.

You are so right, Peg. Sadly, this is often the case. I posted the link since it did indeed "make my day" [img][/img]
You and my husband think so much alike [img][/img]
I understand your concern, isn't it the same in nursing? Getting the most vital and important information out there and making sure it is being comprehended in a small amount of time. Throughout my day as a nurse I wear many hats. "Teacher" is a fav of mine.

Really good point. I probably have made this mistake along the way. (It reminds me of needing to train myself to NOT talk about PA sometimes because too much IS counter-productive.)
Peg, would you consider posting this idea in the "What factors have helped you develop a successful rel'ship w/ your school?" thread on the schools board?

Reraising to compliment the subject of the day in the "Rudeness #3" thread:
That whole being willing to "Give as good as we get" thing.
And as long as "Chronic Illness and Homeschooling" is on the menu...

I am confused, do you all experienced schoolparents think this is a good or bad document to share with the school?
Our school does a lot of the right things (nut free classrooms, nut free table in cafeteria) BUT there are no formal policies, and communication is poor.
I've had to start sending in little notes to the teacher/principal ... do I attach something like this as support? How about to the superintendent (who I am planning to write regarding our state's required adoption of healthy food policy by 2007 at every school in every district).
Have they seen this stuff already, or maybe not?
