How do I contact my child's teacher?

We support and encourage open communication between your home and our teachers. However, we request that parents/guardians do not call the classroom during the instructional hours. You may call the office and leave a message for the teacher, or you may email the teacher directly. You'll find contact information for our teachers and staff on our Staff page. All Winters' Well teachers check email regularly. Please feel free to communicate any questions or comments for your child's teacher via email.

What if my child is absent or tardy?

If your child must be absent from school, please call the school at (623) 474.5320 as soon as possible. If we do not receive a call by 9:30 a.m., the attendance clerk may call to inquire about the student's status. If we are unable to reach you by phone, your student should present a note, signed by the parent, to the office that states the date and specific reason for the absence.

Absences and tardiness disrupt learning and can slow or even prevent your child's success. Please do your best to schedule doctor, dentist, and other appointments during off-school hours.

What is the dress code at Winters' Well?

We expect our students to dress appropriately and in good taste. We encourage our students to avoid any potentially distracting or harmful clothing and accessories. Some common infractions include, but are not limited to, revealing tops or bottoms and flip-flops. Boys often receive notice of sagging pants and inappropriate t-shirts.

We reserve the right to determine whether a student's clothing is appropriate for school. For more details regarding our dress code, please review the student handbook.

What if my child needs medication or becomes ill at school?

Medication:

If your child needs to take any medication during the school day, please complete a Medication Release Form in the school office. We do not dispense medication, including Tylenol, at school without a written order from a physician or parent. We request that students keep medicine in the school nurse's office, in the original prescription container, with the student's name on it. Students cannot keep their own medication at school. The nurse will call your child out of class when it is time to administer the approved medication.

Illness:

We will notify you if your child becomes ill at school. The best place for an ill child is at home in the care of an adult. The school nurse does not diagnose illnesses. If your child is ill or injured, please consult a doctor before sending your child to school.

What are the guidelines for cell phones?

Students may carry cell phones while at school; however, Winters' Well students may not use their cell phones during the school day. To help ensure that phones do not create a distraction, students must report to the school office to make any emergency calls.
