Communications

QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS

The Floyd Middle Magnet School faculty and staff strive very hard to communicate with parents on a regular basis to avoid problems. Sometimes questions or problems do occur. We encourage you to call or talk to the teacher, principal, or the appropriate designee if questions, concerns, or problems arise. Be reminded that when/if problems do arise that it is imperative that as adults we set a good example for students on handling conflicts.

E-MAIL Is the preferred method of contacting teachers and staff members. You may send e-mail by using the member’s name (john.doe@mps.k12.al.us). See teachers’ email addresses on page 6 of this handbook.
