Glen Ridge (NJ) Schools are no longer sending notes home: all communications with the parental units will be conducted via email. (Presumably every home in the district has some sort of email access; I haven't heard any outcry from the Poor and Unwired.)
As a test, the district sent out this email. It does attempt to cover all conceivable issues, though this one might have thrown some people:
If you do not receive the test email, please be sure to check your SPAM blocking software. If you use AOL, please check your SPAM folder, highlight our message, and then click on "This is not Spam." If you do not receive the email or have technical problems, please email Winnie Boswell [email address snipped] to ask for assistance.
Hmmm. Can one reply to an email which was not received?
And "if we hadn't received it," wonders the Barista of Bloomfield Avenue, "how would we know?"
