Lakeview Staff Newsletter - September 20
An unsettled feeling
You have permission to stop what you are teaching if needed to work on procedures, routines, and rituals with the class. If less than 100% of the class is engaged in independent reading or if some students are not using math tools correctly, stop teaching. Pull everyone back to the carpet and reteach expectations. I am completely ok with this. And don't be afraid to wrap more people into the conversation: grade-level colleagues, the teacher from last year, anyone in pupil services, and certainly myself.
Keep it up, Lakeview!

Photo opt-out list - You received this list from Roxanne. These are the choices that families made when registering for school. Please be careful about it. But you can also mention to the family that they have restricted certain information and if they would like to change it, send them to the office where we can easily update it. Sometimes families are confused by the way the questions are worded and opt out by mistake. Then again, some are legitimate restrictions, so we must follow all of them.
Workman's Comp - I was in a meeting this week where our district's workman's comp insurance reps taught us all sorts of things. Workplace safety and prompt reporting is in the best interest of our students and the district because it costs us in many different ways. If you are hurt, please report it right away. We have blue envelopes in the office that detail the procedure that we need to follow.
Conferences - Please reach out to families that have not scheduled a conference. We really do strive for 100% attendance at conferences. If there is a family that has not scheduled and you absolutely cannot reach, schedule a time for them and send a note home.
