Parents and guardians must be motivated to get involved in school activities.  We hope that your children's education will be considered a priority.  On the part of the institution, monthly grade reports are a way of communicating both academic and personal development to parents.  Teachers can also contact parents in person, by phone, or by email. Decisions of greater importance or seriousness should be consulted with the corresponding coordinator before being communicated to parents.  Parents also have a responsibility to seek the appropriate channels to maintain communication with the school, because otherwise, the student's needs will not be met.


The best teaching is by example, therefore we ask all adults: teachers, administrative and maintenance staff and family members of SDS, to behave responsibly.  If we require students to be punctual, to be honest and courteous, to attend school properly dressed, we have to require the same from adults.


The Parents' Association and the Student Council are vehicles to ensure the proper functioning and participation of the educational community.


Each year a new board of the Association of Parents, Teachers and Friends of the School is elected.  Their role is to support the school, to ensure: a quality service; provide financial support for improvement projects and strengthen communication channels between school and home. The committee is made up of the following members: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, President of the Committee  Disciplinary, Representatives of each class or course, President of the Student Council; Representatives of the Teaching Staff and the Director  Academic who has a role as a consultant.


The student council is the voice of the students.  It is the mechanism for students to communicate, as a group, with the school about their concerns, ideas, and purposes.  It is also a two-way channel of communication between students and the institution and the way in which students can organize themselves as a group, take responsibility, develop leadership and cooperation. Each class elects its representatives, who must include the following positions: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary. Some other charges could be included according to discretion.  Due to age differences, representatives will be organized into the following groups: 1st  to 4th Grade; 5th  to 8th  Degree; High school. A high school student participates in the Discipline Committee.




The Usual Involvement of Parents in School Life

How can parents serve as an example to us?

  • Drive carefully and with consideration for others in the parking lot.

  • Adults must also come to school with appropriate clothing.

  • Arrive at school on time, establishing a routine that allows the student to be positive: setting age-appropriate rules for bedtime; help students learn to be organized by making sure they have their uniform, snacks, snack money, and school supplies ready; avoid fights on the road; and finally send the child off in a positive way.

  • Make sure the student has a healthy diet.  In case the student is going to eat the school lunch, they must know it in advance.

  • Do not give full money to older siblings who do NOT have the same recess and lunch schedule, to prevent the child from interrupting the classes of others.

  • Parents are allowed to participate in the Flag Act and lunch for their children.  This is NOT the time for a parent-teacher conference.  Remember that they have little break time or other commitments with their students.

  • Bring the lunch food on time, so that the student follows the break schedule assigned to their grade.


Our Parents Cooperate at Lunch


At lunch time:

Grades 1 – 4:             11:45 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.


Grades 5 –  8:               12:30 –   1:00 pm


                                              Secondary:            1:00 –   1:30 p.m.


We appreciate the help that parents and other family members provide during the lunch hour.  They must submit to the rules of the school and support them, communicating their concerns and suggestions to the coordinators and directors.  Parents should not take responsibility for disciplinary matters, they should allow teachers and Coordinators to act on their behalf.  Conflicts could arise if parents take on the role of teacher without the consent of the other parents involved.


School Staff: Supervision of recess and lunch


The school organizes a supervised schedule for breaks and lunch.  In other words, not all teachers are in charge of supervision, because some of them are also on their break time. Even so, in an emergency, they will be in the best disposition to cooperate. Supervising teachers are standing in different parts of the area.


Parents can cooperate, taking into account the following rules:

  • Do not bring strangers to school.  In case they wish to enter with a visit, permission must be previously requested from the management.

  • Do not discuss adult matters or make inappropriate criticism in front of students.

  • Discuss with the school staff your suggestions, questions and concerns to help us correct errors and improve our educational service.

  • We appreciate your help in supporting the order and cleanliness of the cafeteria.  Unfortunately, many children do not bother to pick up and take their belongings home, or they neglect throwing away or carrying our cutlery.

  • Under no circumstances should a parent punish  to your child  raising their voice or physically at school.

  • Under no circumstances should a parent punish  a student, raising his voice or attacking him.  The father / mother who acts in this way, acts outside the law.


The good behavior of our students:


  1. Students must wash their hands at their assigned grade level before eating.

  2. Students must line up and wait to be called by one of the cafeteria staff before proceeding to the counter.

  3. The microwave is not available during recess.

  4. Unless students are standing in line, waiting for their food, they are to sit at tables during the first few minutes of recess. They will then be allowed to go to the bathroom and play in the yard.  Under no circumstances are they allowed to eat on the patio, take out plates, glasses, cups, etc. from the coffee shop.

  5. Students must eat and (sit) properly, displaying good table manners.

  6. If they don't have food, their head teacher should talk to their parents.  Even if they don't have a snack or food, the student must sit at the table during the first few minutes of recess.

  7. After eating, each group of students should clean their table.  All garbage will be deposited in the garbage can; cups, glasses and plates will be deposited in the large plastic container provided for this purpose and the lunch boxes stored and closed before leaving the area to play.

  8. The table monitor should clean the table after everyone has finished.

  9. At the end of recess students should pick up their lunch boxes and take them to their classes.


Parents can be present at the school, at lunchtime, at our invitation.

We value your help!
