NOTE TO COMMUNITY: Our Quileute Tribal School Teachers
Our teachers and staff are contracted from 8 am – 4 pm. Please remember that our teachers have private lives with their own children, families and commitments just like our parents do. At QTS we pride ourselves on the connection we have as a school that it is like a family here at QTS. We do ask that students and parents kindly remember that not all of our teachers and staff will be able to give of their time after 4 pm, though many do willingly, it is not to be taken for granted. We are learning in this online/distance learning environment that it is important to set boundaries on our time and teach our students when it is appropriate to contact their teachers and when it is not appropriate, hence we have online office hours established. We would ask that considerations be given and that students and parents not assume that all teachers and staff have the same available time outside of the contract day. Our teachers will teach our students when it is appropriate and not appropriate to communicate with them online based on individual teachers needs as well as our school schedules. Of course as parents you may always call or email your child’s teacher and request a conference with your child’s teacher. Classroom phones are blocked during the instructional day and will go directly to voicemail. I would suggest either a phone call or an email as the best method to contact your student’s teachers with an expectation to have a return call or email in 24 hours. Remember to always work to resolve matters at the lowest level first before escalating matters to the Principal. Thank you. Superintendent Mark J. Decker
