Dear Parents/Guardians,


We would like to welcome you to Barka School. When you enrolled your child at Barka, you also enrolled yourself to be involved in a very strong partnership with the school. Please remember that our number one priority is for your child to feel secure, challenged, and successful in all learning experiences. For this year to be a very successful one, creating and maintaining a partnership is crucial. Communication and working together for the benefit of the children in this partnership will create a pleasurable and successful school year for everyone.


There are several parts of the school handbook that would be helpful for you to go over with your child. If a question arises while you are reviewing the handbook, please give the school a call at 434-2430. Please review the handbook at home with your family and complete the electronic signature page.


In addition to this handbook, please review the Barka Health and Safety Precautions and Modifications document for additional information regarding specific building information changes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

These documents should be used to answer some questions you may have. For first time parents at Barka School, we hope this information eases some anxiety you may be feeling. If there are still some questions after going through the handbook, please do not hesitate to call the office.


Sincerely,


David A. Brown

Principal
