If we’re going ‘paperless’, why did paper come home in the backpacks this Friday?

We’d really like to try to strike the right balance.  We’d like to reduce paper waste, we’d like to streamline information delivery, and we’d like to make sure that no-one is being left out of the loop.   Calibrating this is a balance we’re going to be working to achieve, and we appreciate the patience you’ve already extended us.  

It seems there’s a desire/need for a marginal paper outreach, at least as we all get accustomed to the new delivery methods, possibly longer – and we’re happy to try to fill that need.  On the last Friday of each month – you can expect to receive one sheet of paper listing the (known) upcoming events for the next month-and-a-half.  This will be delivered along with the familiar Menu Calendar mailing from the district, and occasionally one sheet of mini forms to fill-out-and-return to the office IF necessary.   Each form is expected to be sent home in mini-paper form only once.

All forms will continue to be available in the office for student (or parent) pickup, and online in downloadable format both attached to their detailed event page AND in our new Forms page (listed on the main page menu, right at the top of the page.  You can check it out here.  We’ve also added downloadable bus pass forms, student dismissal forms, and extended day signup forms, for your convenience.)

Thank you.  Your constructive feedback has been both helpful and appreciated.
