This document is meant to be copied double sided. Send this home on the first day of school for parents to fill out. Their contact information and important info on each student will be easily accessible throughout the school year.
This would also be helpful to pass out prior to the school year if you have a "Meet the Teacher" night or something similar. Ask for it to be returned on the first day of school completely filled out. Then, you won't have to ask each parent how their students will be getting home. It will all be printed on the form!
On the back are 5 questions that are intended to give you some insight on your new students. I hope you find this as useful as I do!
