Updates/Reminders:

New Playground Equipment:

  • The new playground installation is complete. Just like with anything new, we need to teach students expectations for the new equipment BEFORE they use it. Please take time during at the beginning of your recess time (not more than a few minutes) to teach expectations and divide up staff to ensure supervision is in appropriate locations. It is important that grade levels are consistent in expectations. Children are super excited and we need to be ready for the excitement. We will discuss consistent school wide expectations for new equipment at the next SLT meeting. It would be nice for us all to be consistent. What is most important for the coming days (until that conversation occurs) is safety. : )

Please do not send out mass emails regarding other covering duty for you due to an absence/progressional development. We must have confirmed people out at car duty and we have been short several days due to no one answering the mass email and/or people not covering their duty. This is too important a time of day for us to hope someone sees the email and helps out. Please text a friend that doesn't have duty to switch with you and/or text Carla
