Communication with parents about their child's progress can be achieved through a number of means at Latrobe SDS.
Student Diaries are supplied to each student. These are an important communication tool for families and school. They are used daily to communicate messages between School and Home. (Notes or letters may also be used.) Absence notes are required for student absences and we request that all parents complete the pro forma supplied in the back of your child's diary.
Principal and Teachers are available for discussion by phone. It is preferable for teachers to talk to parents between 8.45 a.m. and 9.00 a.m. and 2.30 p.m. and 3.45 p.m. (with the exception of Tuesday and Wednesday nights). During class times it is not always appropriate for your child's teacher to speak with you.
Formal Parent/Teacher reporting is held twice yearly, usually incorporated in a Student Support Group meeting. A written student progress report is sent home mid year and a recommendations report is sent home in December for the following year.
For information about how parents can become involved with the school please see the Parent Information page.
