School Etiquette

    Your school is a very important part of your child’s life. It is where you, as a parent, meet a lot of people who will be involved in your child’s education, everyday life and emotional stability. It is a place where you, as a person and a parent, need to be positive, enthusiastic and a team player. Not only at school, but around school. When you park on the surrounding streets or parking lots around the school to drop your child off, or walk into school with your child, be on your best behavior. Don’t park in “no parking” areas. Don’t park inappropriately by the houses surrounding the school. Don’t park on someone’s grass or flower bed. Don’t try and “get ahead” in the line of cars waiting to drop off children by cutting the line. That’s a real “no-no”. Drive at the speed limit for school time. Be courteous. Don’t get frustrated or irritated because the school rules at dropping off and picking up children don’t fit your schedule or the “way you do things”. Get used to it. Your child will be in school a long time…and you can either have the school on your side, be a team player, get involved and be positive…or have some very long years (for you and the school personnel and the other parents around you) ahead of you. Make it a point to learn the school rules and follow them. They are usually easily obtained (in either the first couple of newsletters home, in the school handbook, or through veteran parents you ask). Make the effort. Don’t complain about the school or school personnel to either your neighbors, your relatives or in front of your children. It will come back to bite you…that’s a given. The school is not going to conform to what you think it should do. The school is working on dealing with hundreds of parents and making rules and regulations to keep children safe and deal with parents in the best way possible. Don’t be angry when your school doesn’t let you take your child out of class during testing, or makes you show your ID or makes you wear a nametag or token when you go to school. Don’t bypass the office and go right to your child’s room: you put the teacher and the school in an adversarial position by your actions. Learn the rules…follow them. Make sure your child knows the rules and follows them as well. Make sure your child knows that you respect their school, their teacher and that you and the school are a team. You’ll be glad you did.
