to communicate with parents?

Communication with parents will include regular and ongoing communication involving student academic learning and other school activities by way of phone calls, conferences, and home visits.  Parents are encouraged to take the initiative to contact their child's teacher to monitor progress as well as when they have a concern.  Parents may request a translator for conferences.  As much as possible, notices will be sent home in a language parents understand.
