TEAM CSF News - Weekly Update

One Team. One Goal. No Limits.

March 21st-25th


  • Please make sure that you check this daily....when our agenda changes, I note it on the Weekly Smore.
  • Please make sure that you have signed up for our End of the Year SLO conference. I shared this via e-mail.
  • Mark your calendars....Elementary Registration is July 26th!
  • Please make sure that you are on time to duty. You should be at your duty location when the bell sounds, not moving to your location.
  • Please make sure that you actively supervise students at all times. You should never leave students unattended. When you leave them unattended, this creates a liability.
  • Please make sure that all doors stay closed and locked at all times.

Nurse Information
  • Please make sure that students have had lunch before leaving the cafeteria to see the nurse, unless it is an emergency. (We have had students missing lunch, and they were waiting for a band-aid.)
  • If you need band-aids, please email Nurse Belue and she will place them in your box.
  • Head Lice Reminders - Encourage students to avoid head to head contact. If you have pillows in your room, please make sure that students are not placing their heads on them. Please make sure that students are not laying down on the rugs in your classroom. Please make sure that coats and book bags are at each child's desk and not hung where they are touching each other. If you have questions, please see Nurse Belue.

Things to Complete:

  • ALL Teachers - complete the WIDA PD course on Edivate by May 1st.

  1. Mark your calendar...Spring District Office Instructional visit will be March 31st.

A Few Safety Reminders...

1. Conduct a daily “safety scan” of your classroom each morning as you enter the room. Remove or relocate any items that may create a safety hazard.

2. Ensure the door to your room is closed and locked at all times.

3. Be aware of your surroundings as you walk. Watch for potential slip and trip hazards.

4. Ensure you have a class list with you at all times.
