Paras and Time Clocks

On weeks we have faculty learning, we have asked you to extend your lunches. You are not allowed to leave early at the end of the day to make up time unless it is cleared by Parsons or Walker. Stretch lunch times or take a break to run to Sonic. If this does not work with your schedule, get with Evelyn to find a time to adjust.

Everyone and Time Clocks

If you have to leave early, come in late, come and go, etc.

1. Email Evelyn to get permission from Walker or Parsons.

2. Email Evelyn so she knows when she is looking at time clock.

3. If it is less than 2 hours, make up the time.

4. If is more than 2 hours, put a time clock request in.
