Communication for Families

Clear communication creates trust, which is essential for a solution-oriented, people-first organization committed to continuous improvement. NRCCS is committed to high-quality, two-way communication.

We ask that both families and staff members respect our Communication Agreements.  We:

  • Demonstrate respect in both what is said and how it is said.

  • Demonstrate public support for one another and recognize that families and teachers are on the same team.

  • Assume positive intentions and keep an open mind.

  • Ask questions first.

  • Raise concerns with the appropriate person. 

  • Use good judgment about the amount of contact that is appropriate.

  • Be mindful of the amount of time an individual concern may take and of staff “working hours” (7:45-3:30) when communicating or anticipating responses. Staff members will make reasonable efforts to respond to inquiries within two business days.

  • Schedule appointments if a discussion is needed instead of raising concerns in public settings, especially before school, after school or when faculty and staff are outside doing supervision.  

  • Keep in mind that voicemail and e-mail are public documents and that confidentiality cannot always be protected. Know that e-mails sent to and from NRCCS staff are considered ‘findable evidence’ in a court of law. A great rule of thumb is that we should not say or write anything that we wouldn’t want to be published.

  • Adhere to “email is for information and not for conversation”.  We understand our lives are very busy but we would like to spend more time creating partnerships and mutual understanding, than responding to emails/messages. Please schedule an appointment to meet with your teacher, either by phone or by Zoom if your request or questions would require more than a few sentence response.

  •  Verbal, physical or sexual harassment towards staff will not be tolerated.
