Chain of Communication

Our communication flow is vital to the success of our school. For all questions and concerns we have a chain of communication in place to effectively satisfy the needs of our parents and students. 

ACADEMICS CHAIN OF COMMUNICATION

Should a concern arise in the classroom or with a student’s grades the following procedure should be followed:

  1. To help students build self-advocacy skills, the first line of communication should always begin between the student and the teacher. Click here for our staff directory.

  2. After the student has communicated with the teacher, then the parents can contact the teacher directly via email if need be.

  3. If the issue remains unresolved, the parent should then communicate his/her concern with the department chair or child's counselor.

  4. Parents should only contact the Assistant Principal of Learning Services (theisler@ndpsaints.org) if the chain of communication has been exhausted.

ATHLETICS/ACTIVITIES CHAIN OF COMMUNICATION

Should a concern arise during an athletic season, House or club event the following procedure should be followed:

  1. To help students and student-athletes build self-advocacy skills, the first line of communication should always begin between the student and the coach, Head of House or club moderator.

  2. After the student has communicated with the coach, Head of House or moderator, then the parents can contact them directly via email if need be.

  3. If the issue remains unresolved, the parent should then communicate his/her concern with the Athletic Director (mcisterna@ndpsaints.org) or Co-Directors of House System (mgranger@ndpsaints.org or cmelnychenko@ndpsaints.org).

  4. Parents should only contact the Assistant Principal of Student Services (bdragonetti@ndpsaints.org) if the chain of communication has been exhausted.
