If at any time, you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by phoning the school at 689-6100 and leave a message; I will return your call as soon as I am able.  Throughout the year, I may send home information sheets on what we are doing in class and if I need to contact you personally, I will telephone you directly.  All homework should be available on the homework hotline, though regular home assignments are seldom given in French as most work is done in the classroom.   In addition, class announcements will, from time to time, be posted on the website noted above.
