At Nelson School communication between parents and teachers is critical for student success.
To that end, we utilize a multitude of ways to share information and keep you informed of what is happening at school.

ESmall nelson school photo-mail is one effective tool to communicate with Nelson staff members. Each Nelson staff member has access to a computer and is expected to check their e-mail on a daily basis. When e-mailing a staff member begin by typing the first letter of the staff member's name, then their last name, followed by ''. Example: ''. You may also access each staff member's e-mail address through the list on the Faculty & Staff page.


The office is staffed from 7:30 am to 3:30 pm daily. Should you have to call earlier or later, please leave a message on the answering machine and we will respond to your call as soon as we are able.

Please know that teachers are quite busy throughout the instructional day working directly with your children. Should you need to talk to your child's classroom teacher, please keep in mind that during the school day, the teacher's primary responsibility is the classroom and classroom instruction will not be interrupted except in the case of an emergency. If your call is of an emergency nature, please let us know and we will make sure that your message is promptly relayed.


Parent Teacher Conferences and Progress Reports
The Nelson School staff shares student progress with parents three times per year at parent teacher conferences. The first recommended parent teacher conference to discuss your child's progress is held in December. The second scheduled conference is in March, and the last conference is a portfolio conference which is led by your child and is held in early June. If additional conferences are needed, they may be initiated by either the parent or teacher.
