Introducing Our Home-School Liaison/Translator
Dear Herndon Barstow School Community,
We are thrilled to introduce Mrs. Simrat Salh as our Family Outreach Liaison/Translator for the upcoming academic year, 2023-2024. In this role, Mrs. Salh will be a dedicated resource, ensuring that every parent, guardian, and family member receives the support and assistance they need to foster a successful educational journey for their children.
Modern families often face numerous challenges that can impact a student's participation in both academic and extracurricular activities. To provide effective education to our diverse student population, fostering strong communication and collaborative relationships with parents is essential. Mrs. Salh, as our liaison, will be the catalyst for building bridges between the school, families, and the wider community.
Mrs. Salh's role encompasses several critical aspects:
- **Enhanced Communication:** She will facilitate open lines of communication between parents and the school, ensuring that information flows seamlessly in both directions.
- **Community Agency Referrals:** Mrs. Salh will connect families with external resources and services that can further support their needs.
- **Encouraging Family Involvement:** Encouraging and fostering active participation of parents and families in school activities to create a vibrant and supportive educational environment.
- **Building Trust:** By nurturing trust and understanding between parents and the educational community, Mrs. Salh will create an atmosphere conducive to positive collaboration.
- **Boosting Academic Achievement:** Through close collaboration with school staff, and messaging the importance of regular school attendance, Mrs. Salh will contribute to higher academic achievement by pooling resources and expertise.
Our goal at Herndon Barstow is to empower all parents to actively engage in their child's education. We especially want to support those parents who may require assistance in navigating the educational process, feel less engaged in school activities, or simply seek clarification about their roles.
Mrs. Salh will serve as the bridge between home and school. She understands that sometimes parents might hesitate to communicate directly with teachers or administration. We value this crucial communication link, as it significantly influences a student's academic journey. Mrs. Salh will attentively listen to parents' concerns, ensuring that these concerns are shared, understood, and addressed collaboratively with the school.
We invite you to reach out to Mrs. Salh for assistance, support, or any questions you may have. Your involvement is key to your child's success, and we are here to help you be an informed and active participant in their education.
Mrs. Salh embodies the spirit of Herndon Barstow, and she is ready to support you in any way possible. If you need further information or have questions, please don't hesitate to contact Mrs. Salh at (559) 276-5250 ext. 23204.

Let's work together to create a nurturing and successful learning environment for every student.
