Communication is critical for a successful year at Peruvian Park Elementary. Here are some ways to keep up to date on what is going on here at school.
The Peruvian Park faculty checks their email daily. While it is not always possible to respond immediately to emails, teachers do their best to respond within 24 hours. Teachers are unable to accept phone calls during instructional time, but will check messages at the end of the day. If you have an urgent issue that needs to be addressed immediately, please call the front office for assistance. You may reach Principal Jewkes by phone or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, if you would like to meet with Principal Jewkes, please call to schedule an appointment time.
During online registration, you verify that directory contact information for your student may be shared. Please select no to opt out.
Principal Jewkes Updates
At the beginning of the week, you will receive an email from Principal Jewkes. It will inform you of the great things happening at Peruvian Park Elementary, as well as important updates of activities and events. If your email changes, please log into Skyward and update your contact information, so you can continue to get the Monday morning messages.
Teacher Weekly Newsletters
Each teacher will send a weekly notice to parents/guardians via email, blog, website or paper. This communication will inform you of weekly academic objectives, special activities, and other important classroom news.
Each class sends home a planner/folder with important dates and documents that might include: homework, classroom newsletter, notices of school related meetings, field trip permission slips, and information about school holidays or events.
The Peruvian website is an excellent source for everything you need to know about our school. Visit the website regularly to get up to date information about Peruvian Park, calendars, PTA, School Community Council, interactive student websites, and curriculum resources. It is highly recommended that parents/guardians bookmark the website and check it weekly. Check it out at www.peruvianpark.canyonsdistrict.org .
Teacher – Principal Meetings
The faculty at Peruvian Park is always open to input and encourages you to write, email, or call for an appointment whenever you have ideas or concerns. Although teachers are not available to have conversations during school hours, they are eager to address parent/guardian concerns and questions before they become problems. Teachers are available for meetings Monday – Thursday from 7:45 am – 8:15 am and 2:55 pm – 3:25 pm. It is recommended that you call or email to set up an appointment prior to meeting with the teachers. It helps teachers better address questions and/or concerns if they have time to prepare for parent meetings. At all times, parents are asked to enter through the front doors and check in at the office prior to visiting teachers.
