Parent Communication

Make sure you have all the latest information about H-B Woodlawn.  This page will give you an overview of how you can receive information, how you can communicate with other parents and staff members and where to look for other information.

HBW – News

The HBW PAC uses APS School Talk to distribute announcements, meeting notices, and other information of interest to HBW parents and the wider HBW community. Please make sure your contact information is correct in ParentVUE to ensure you receive the communications.

Communicating With HBW Staff

Communicating with staff at H-B Woodlawn is easy.  Each staff member’s email address is listed on our webpage under “About Us.”   All staff members can be reached by phone by calling the main office, 703-228-6363, and leaving a message.  Your calls, questions, and feedback are welcome.

Consider your child’s Teacher Advisor (TA) as your first line of communication regarding your student.  TAs monitor and track student progress and are student advocates. TAs can help students develop the confidence and skills they need to advocate for themselves and to become responsible, self-directed learners. Call the main office for the name of your child’s Teacher Advisor.
