….If teachers don’t strike
Unless a strike is called, be sure to your child is at school on Tuesday, September 4, 2012. There are no good reasons for children not to be there. They have had nearly three months to play, chill and do whatever, and it’s time to focus on education.
Call your child’s school to confirm the start and end times as many schools are extending the school day. If your child school is on a Track E schedule, they are already late, so make sure they are there on September 4th.
Take the time to meet the teacher and principal. We need to be partners in educating on our children.
Remember, the first day sets the tone for the rest of the year.
