North Pointe’s primary communication resources are electronic. For daily insights, scheduling and event updates, the Prep utilizes the various communication platforms linked on the school’s website, preptv.org. Although letters, flyers and notices may be sent home from time to time highlighting information about an event, parents should not rely solely on these forms of communication. Instead, the school’s electronic resources should be consulted daily.
North Pointe's primary communication during an emergency is the Principal's Blog.
Student Academic Progress
Communication between the school and home is vital for student success. Parents/guardians are encouraged to stay informed and involved in student grades and classroom behavior through the school's online academic resource and/or direct email access to teachers. Since teachers have responsibilities before and after school, impromptu conferences and meetings are not possible.
Contacting School Personnel
North Pointe's administration, faculty, staff and extracurricular coaches/group leaders usually communicate information to students directly, not through parents. Therefore, North Pointe prefers students demonstrate responsibility and communicate their questions/concerns directly to administration, faculty, staff, and extracurricular coaches/group leaders. If a situation requires parental involvement, school personnel can be contacted using email. Coaches/group leaders, who do not work at North Pointe, will provide team/group members with contact information. North Pointe faculty and staff will respond to an email by the end of the next day (unless the person is absent or the school is on break).
Due to student and employee privacy rights and issues, students are not allowed to take pictures or video sound and images - including recording, capturing, copying, duplicating, publishing, printing, uploading, posting, etc., while on campus or during school hours without prior permission from school administration.
Use of Recording Devices
Due to student and employee privacy rights and issues, taking pictures or video sound and images - including recording, capturing, copying, duplicating, publishing, printing, uploading, posting, etc., - during parent meetings (including but not limited to conferences and IEP meetings) is not permitted.
Student Concerns during school Hours While On Campus
Students with concerns during school hours, while on campus, should take one of the following steps:
- Visit the 4A Center before school, during breaks and lunch, or after school and ask to speak to an administrator.
- Complete and submit a Student Concern Report to the 4A Center.
- Go immediately to the 4A Center and ask to speak to an administrator.
Student Concerns during Extracurricular activities
Students with concerns during extracurricular activities should immediately contact the faculty member/staff person/coach/group leader in charge of the activity. While on trips, when the emergency trip contact number has been activated, students should also text the concern immediately.
North Pointe believes concerns should be communicated directly with the administrator, faculty member, staff, or extracurricular coach/group leader involved in the situation. If the faculty member, staff, or extracurricular coach/group leader is unable to resolve a concern, the parent/guardian may request the assistance of a school administrator. If the administrator is unable to resolve the situation to the parent/guardian's satisfaction, the Principal's decision is final.
