The Best Way to Contact Teachers
You may contact your child’s advisor or teachers through the main school number and leave a voice-mail at any time. If you call and leave a message for a teacher, please be patient and understand that he/she may not be able to call you back right away. Teachers do make every effort to return calls within 24 hours, even if this means making calls from home in the evening.
Email can be a more efficient way to reach a teacher quickly, as most teachers do check e-mail throughout the day and are able to check their IMS email accounts from home. The searchable directory above allows you to link directly to any faculty or staff member's email address.
All IMS email addresses (except firstname.lastname@example.org) share the same protocol:
first name_last email@example.com
(no spaces, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
Of course, communicating at length by email may not be the best way to resolve a complex issue. A better approach is to email the teacher and ask when it would be convenient to talk and arrange a time when the teacher is available and near a phone.
