Letters for Families

Schools and districts are sending more communications than ever this school year. Communications sent home should be brief, written at a reading level parents will comprehend, and be clear and supportive rather than threatening, so action is taken by today’s busy families. 

We’ve updated for Covid-19 sample letters that can be used to welcome new students and families, to alert parents and caregivers when a student is chronically absent, or to send home before the Thanksgiving holiday or long winter break.

Download one of the sample letters below and personalize it for your school or district.
