Stratford Landing Communication Tips:

  • Encourage your child to communicate concerns/questions with the teacher on his/her own before you become involved in the conversation.
  • We encourage families to discuss concerns with the teacher before contacting the school administration.
  • Allow 24 hours turnaround time on teacher communication, including emails. Concise, brief emails are preferred and helps our staff maximize their planning times.
  • Communicate to all teachers (including specialists) regarding important information about your child (i.e. illness, change in routine, death in the family, medication changes, etc.).
  • Our Stratford Landing staff believes it to be a priority to maintain open lines of communication between our families and school community. Families are encouraged to contact a teacher if they have a concern. All teachers and staff have e-mail addresses and can be contacted by e-mail. Please give 24 hours for a teacher or staff member to respond to your inquiry. Urgent matters that need to be communicated immediately should go through the front office. If you are unsure about who to contact in the office, please feel free to review the ways each front office staff member supports the community below.

If you have a question for our office staff and are unsure who to contact, we have provided the ways each office staff member supports our community below.

How Do We Contact You?

Your emergency contact information is vital to us and to you. It accompanies your child everywhere he or she goes – even on field trips.  Phone numbers, addresses, and the names of the adults you permit to take your child from school should all be kept current. 

You can input, access, and update your child’s emergency care information via the FCPS program, weCare@school, which is available through the Parent View account on FCPS 24-7. It is fast, easy, and safe.

The paper version of the emergency care form is still available. It is not necessary to complete both the paper and the online version.
