There are two possible communication types that you could send home with students via backpack mail, depending on the reason and the message. You could send a letter for important announcements or security issues or a flyer for upcoming events.
- Official letter – if there’s a need to send home a letter, please use official letterhead, a proofread message and a signature. Try to make sure letters are always translated. To save paper, put the Spanish version on the back side of the English version.
- Flyer – to promote an upcoming school function (i.e. school dance, fine arts show), follow the flyer format.
