- Parent Communication
Periodic Reports from School to Parents
The School emails teacher comments to parents three times a year. We email grades to parents at the end of each quarter. Advisors write letters to parents in October, February, and June. We will contact you promptly if any aspect of your child’s life at St. Andrew’s warrants your immediate attention.
Communication from Parents to School
There are many reasons why you might want to contact someone on the faculty. In most cases common sense will dictate the appropriate person. For instance, if you are curious about your child’s debit card bill, you should contact the Business Office; if you want to pass on some specific medical information pertaining to your child, you should call or write to the School’s Director of Health Services. We attempt to be as decentralized and unbureaucratic as possible, so do not hesitate to contact any of us if you are concerned about your child or wish to give or receive information. Telephone numbers and email addresses for all faculty can be found on our website at www.standrews-de.org/academics/faculty. The Head of School welcomes calls from parents at any time and on any topic.
Having stressed our hope that you will not hesitate to contact any of us when the need arises, we urge you to channel inquiries pertaining to your child’s health and welfare, deportment, and academic, athletic, and extracurricular activities through his or her advisor. This faculty member works closely with your child and reviews all informal and formal reports. At least in the first instance, the advisor is the best person with whom to talk regarding most matters pertaining to your child.
The main School telephone number is 302-378-9511. When School is in session, the Central Services Office takes calls to this number, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and will direct your call to the appropriate office or department as needed. Outside of those hours, you may call offices and departments directly; a list of School phone numbers can be found on our website at www.standrews-de.org/about/contact-us. In case of an after-hours emergency, please call a member of the faculty, administration, or the main number at the School for further instructions. To leave a general message for the receptionist, call the main School number; your message will be forwarded or replied to the next business day.
You may use the Business Office Fax to send a message to your child: 302-378-7120. Your message is then posted for the student to pick up. A fax sent after 4:00 p.m. on Friday may not reach the recipient until Monday morning. The Head of School’s and Admission Office fax number is 302-285-4275.
Students have access to the internet via their laptops, as well as the computers in the library and dorm common rooms. Each student and teacher has a St. Andrew's email address, and the School provides wireless service throughout the campus.
