Campbell School Goes Green with Paperless Reports

| 14 Comments

As of March 1, Robert Gugliara, principal of Campbell School, has announced that Campbell School will no longer send masses of paper notices home in backpacks each day. Instead, ongoing notices, such as lunch schedules and calendar information, will be updated on the school's website and made available there exclusively.  Asking families to make a habit of checking online for information on a regular basis, Gugliara states, "We want to save paper as it is costly. Copy machine costs are also high. We will save on time spent running-off and distributing routine notices. I believe that it is time for us to rely more on the available technology."

Moving Campbell School into the completely interactive age will not make up for some notices which will be continuing, such as communications from Special Services or the school nurse, as well as parent-teacher conference sheets and all emergency announcements.

A British Metuchenite. "Taking" decisions rather than "making" them is generally British usage.

What is a Brituchenite?

Decision well taken? You must be one of those Brituchenites.

Time to grow up, grown ups!

A notice was sent home in the backpacks on the topic, and requesting that a paper copy be sent home was, indeed, offered as an option to those that would like it.

It seems to me that in today's world, the cost savings (from our taxes), not to mention the environmental aspect, makes this a decision well taken.

Sending home a paper copy for those that need it was not mentioned as an option. It was mentioned when Mrs. Sinatra switched to only online notices, which showed respect for all types of people. But by the way since I don't get notified about new ones I hardly ever read. I feel it's the school's issue if they want me to know something it's their responsibility to notify me, not for me to constantly check and search out if there might be something new I need to know about. So in the future if they only tell us on the website we have school and I don't happen to check - not my problem.

I bet more people toss the papers than hang them on the wall. So why do I need to get more garbage because you like having a piece of paper?

And I'm sure that Mr. G would still send home paper notices to families that don't have internet access.

So it's more efficient to have my kid turn on the computer every morning to see what they are serving for lunch than to print out the menu and hang it up on the wall? I don't think so.

are you telling me every child at Campbell has a computer at home? I know for a fact there are families with no computer access and I bet there are some who do not have access at work either. We all might but we are discriminating against poorer folks who cannot afford this - and at this economic time I find it offensive.

I think you can survive without the paper---geez.

I would need to print the monthy calendar and the lunch menu. And probably some other stuff too. And what about people who don't have computers or high speed internet? Not everyone does, you know.

why do you have to print them? Just read them

It's about time.

Thanks for shifting the expense to us - now we'll have to print them out.
