Ignite U VERGE Courses - Action Required

All DCSD staff are expected to participate in Technology training via Verge.

In October/November, teachers were expected to complete the Curriculum Resources and Engaging with Launchpad Courses. If you have not already done so, please complete by Friday.

Safety Reminders from Mr. Roberts

Many may choose to use space heaters in classrooms, offices and at home, but understand that it is frowned upon specifically by Plant Services and electricians in general.

It is widely held that space heaters may be the root cause of many home and business electrical fires, and has caused power issues in DH classrooms.

Please never leave such devices plugged in while not monitored and certainly not intentionally left running while away for any brief period here or at home. Keep ALL flammable material at a distance while in use.

New Container??

You may have noticed a new storage container on campus. Druid Hills was slated for replacements to some of our plumbing fixtures in SPLOST-IV (not the one we just voted for). Work will occur mostly after-school and over Breaks throughout the rest of the school year. The impact will be minimal (at times a closed bathroom).
