Pride of the Tribe

SHS Staff Week of March 23, 2020

Teachers,

It is IMPORTANT to maintain high levels of expectation for both students and ourselves as we transfer into the distance learning platform. Challenge yourself to think outside the box in how you deliver instruction. Take a risk in providing more than just worksheets. Interact with your students, give feedback, and continue building relationships. We have the opportunity to make a huge impact on how we are perceived as educators and how we conduct ourselves through this process will speak volumes to our parents and the community.

Good Luck With This Venture And Know I Am Here For You!

Social Media

Please consider limiting personal posts on social media during school hours. Perception is reality and we want our students and parents to know how serious we are about their child's education.

eLearning Etiquette

If you choose to conduct virtual meetings with students or provide video lectures remember the following etiquette:


  1. Set rules for participation
  2. Be overly aware of your background when conducting virtual sessions or creating videos
  3. Your dress needs to be appropriate and professional as well as the background scene
  4. If you would not display things in your classroom setting they should not be displayed in the background of a video
