Reciprocal Communication

Frankie Lemmon School seeks to partner with families to learn from their expertise about their child, and to provide support for families as they navigate the many systems and resources available during this period of their child’s life. Our goal is to support families as engaged partners in our work with mutual trust and respect.

Collaboration between members of the school team and families are key within our program. Consistent, on-going exchanges occur regularly through systems that are in place to help facilitate these interactions.

Family Support & Advocacy

School personnel go above and beyond to help families by serving as advocates and sources of information. Our school maintains an open-door policy for parents/guardians to seek input and advice from school professionals, not only during regular parent-teacher conferences, but on an as-needed basis. We strive to develop strong partnerships with families in order to build a solid connection between home and school.
Family School Partnership Days, parent workshops, parent teacher conferences, individual case management, home visits, and school wide celebrations are some of the opportunities we offer to help support our Frankie Lemmon families.

Family School Partnership Days

Family School Partnership Days are special events designed to provide time and space for parents and children to engage in an activity as part of the school community with the support of school staff.

Communication Folders

Communication Folders are provided for each child to give families information about the child’s day. They include contact information for teachers, therapists, and case managers. Daily sheets are provided that highlight a child’s experiences and care routines each day.

Parent Workshops

Parent Workshops are offered by the Frankie Lemmon School throughout the year free of charge. Some of the topics covered may include: Sign Language, Toilet Training, Kindergarten Readiness, and Behavior Management.
