So much communication vs no communication

We have k-2 coming back in person on the 26th. The P in the building Iím not physically in has sent out no less than 30 emails regarding the return to school plan. She is on it.

The P in the building Iím physically in has sent out nothing. Nada. Silence. Ghosted. Iím tempted to email and all if Iíve missed communication since Iíve been gone. And this is the building where I see k-2 kids so it affects me.

Itís always so interesting being in more than one building simultaneously because it allows you to see how differently things are being done.

Forward the posts from principal #1 to principal #2.

Ask principal #2 if this is the way things are being done in building #2.

I'd be tempted to ask if you missed e-mails or announcements/information while you were gone because you heard about return information from your other school. I don't know if I'd be brave enough because it seems a little passive aggressive when I'm sure the answer is that you didn't miss anything, but I totally would be tempted!

I like what ConnieWI said. It's getting too close to the opening date to not have any communication from the principal.

OT

Iíve been curious about your schools. Our schools have 1 principal and, if lucky, a vice principal (or 2 at middle or high schools). Iíve read about a principal for each building? I donít get it.

KetchupChips, 1 building = 1 school/campus.

All of our buildings/campuses have a principal. In this district, they just hired an AP to be shared part time between 2 buildings.

In my last district, each school (building/campus, whatever) has a full time P AND AP. But, they have huge schools. Each school has gen ed classes and special programs (bilingual, self contained classes, something). You really needed at least 2 full time admin in the building.

Thank you sevenplus and GreyhoundGirl for taking the time to reply. That makes sense and now I can stop wondering.



Have a great evening!

I grew up in NC and my schools (elementary, middle, and high) all had multiple buildings on each campus but it was all one school with one principal.

Here in my Ohio school district, each school is contained within one single building.

I think the different styles have to do with climate. I'm glad students don't have to travel in and out of buildings to switch classes during the cold Ohio winter. In NC it is generally milder. In my elementary school, classroom doors opened directly to the outside. We had to walk outside to get to the lunchroom, office, auditorium, music classroom, etc.
