Contacting Mrs. Locke

Please know that during the day my priority is teaching and learning with your children. I cannot guarantee that I will respond to email during the day. I will get back to you as soon as possible after school. If there is an emergency (transportation) please either call the classroom or Mrs. Ornato in the front office PRIOR to 1:30PM in order to guarantee that we get your student to the appropriate place in the afternoons.


If you have a concern, question or would like a conference please schedule with Mrs. Locke via email or phone call. I always welcome the opportunity to have conferences with parents/families, but also have a very tight schedule in the afternoons due to clubs, meetings, second job and personal commitments. I would love to schedule a time to speak with you!
