Do: Use Email and Texting to Your Advantage

Technology has made letters home to parents passé. Nowadays, you have the benefit of sending emails and texts as long as they’re approved forms of communication by the school and the teacher. Teachers are busy, so don’t burden the teacher with a steady stream of notes and long phone calls. Instead, streamline communication to check in with homework, find out about class events or give educators a head’s up about an absence.
