Home Visits

  • What are the home visits in August before school starts?
    • Teachers will schedule a time to visit with your child prior to the start of school. Both the teacher and classroom aide will come to meet your child in a place they are comfortable. It helps children get to know the teacher and for the staff to meet the child in a more relaxed setting. The visits should last about 15 minutes.
  • We won't be at home during the day. How does the home visit take place?
    • Staff can go to baby sitters, daycare, grandparents, or even the park to meet the students. It is preferred that the location is within the district. Families can also reach out to the teacher to make arrangements.
  • My child attended last year. Will we still have a home visit?
    • The staff would like to visit with each student prior to the start of the school year. It is a great chance for children to get ready to start school again. Summer is also a long time for children to be away from school, so it is nice for them to see their teacher again.
  • My child is being evaluated and the staff wants to do a home visit. What should I expect?
    • When coming out for a home visit in this case, there will be different people who visit. You should expect the school psychologist, speech pathologist, teacher, occupational therapist, and/or physical therapist. The people may depend on the needs of your child. This is a chance for the staff to observe and interact with the child in a comfortable location.
