Schools and parents communicate frequently in relation to the overall wellbeing of a child. In order to keep parents updated about school affairs, schools issue notices to parents for any events, developments, changes in school or anything that affects students. There are innumerable situations were a notification letter may be issued to parents including:
- Viral infections
- Health awareness
- School activities such as plays, events, debates, competitions, sports or ceremonies
- Academic developments
- Change in administration
- School security
- School uniforms
- School Trips
- School holidays
While the above notifications are issued to all students, some notifications may even be issued to parents of particular students. Here are a few examples of why such notifications may be issued:
- Misconduct in school
- Fighting in school
- Late arrival to school
- Poor academic performance
- Disciplinary action
- Special circumstances such as health or injury
