Who Do I Contact? (Parent/Guardian/Media Inquiries)

Who should I contact for concerns about my child?
The student’s school should be the primary point of contact for parents/guardians. The vast majority of questions or concerns (such as curriculum matters, bussing information or school events), can be addressed at the school level through your child’s teacher or through the school administration.

If I have a question that requires a response beyond the school level, for example on a policy matter, should I contact the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District? If so, how do I reach someone at the District?
The vast majority of questions can be answered at the school level. With respect to policies, for the foreseeable future the policies of the previous four districts will remain in effect until otherwise stated. (Updated policies can be found here).

If you have a question which you feel should be addressed by the school district you should first contact the Senior Education Officer (SEO) for the school. The contact information for Senior Education Officers can be found on your schools profile page.
