What if we moved?
If you all have recently moved, please bring a copy of your new lease or deed to your house, your address, your phone numbers and a copy of a utility bill to our FTE clerk. We want to keep our records current in order to keep you aware of the Markham Woods' activities. Also, in the event of an emergency, we would need a working phone number to contact you! Please keep your records up to date.
I want to change one of my child’s classes. How can I get a schedule change?
Due to class size restrictions and the complexities of the master schedule, we are unable to do any more schedule changes at this time. This includes schedule changes for the second semester, as the schedule for the entire year has already been completed and fixed.

Please make sure that your child requests any make-up work they missed from his/her teachers.

My child is struggling in class. What can I do?
If your child is struggling, please contact the teacher as soon as possible to discuss the situation. You may also want to schedule a parent/teacher conference in person by calling (407) 320-1724.
