Safety and Security

Our front door visitor doorbell and visible monitoring system is in full effect. All doors are locked and entry into the building can occur with a key or with being buzzed in by a front desk monitor.

Please do not prop our doors open for any reason. This is a breach against our safety security process and can create an opportunity for an intruder to enter. Practice safe habits for yourself and everyone else daily.

Testing Reminders & Hallway Expectations

  • Remember to review the Testing Calendar that was provided to you via email by Elsie daily so that you are informed.

  • Quiet transitions in the hallways is mandatory not optional. We have several classrooms that are being interrupted from their learning in their classrooms and during testing times as a result of hallway disruptions. If your classroom is not ready to transition into the hallway, do NOT enter the hallway.

Teaching and Learning

  • Develop your plan
  • Use your Data to drive your instruction.
  • Know your kids
  • Avoid excuses and do something different
  • You are the expert in your classroom
  • The students depend on you to guide them.
  • Remember to FOCUS on the “RIGHT WORK” so that you can get results.
