a. The Hancock Elementary School is committed to support the education of every student, providing up to date information and student/parent support. We urge students and parents to stay informed and to report concerns to the school.

b. In order to make certain that all student/parent concerns are acknowledged, we request that all students/parents utilize the following lines of communication.
i. Student concerns should be directed to the person (teacher or aide) who is on duty or responsible for the group or activity.

This year we will continue to utilize the Hancock Correspondence Folder. Each Tuesday all important documentation will be sent home in this folder for your review.
