Classroom teachers you need to make sure that any extra recess or playground use is submitted ahead of time to Melissa. She will then added it to the recess calendar. This calendar is used to make sure we only have one grade level out at a time. It is too dangerous to have mixed and/or multiple grade levels out at a time. The calendar is also allows Jenn and Carol in the office to be able to quickly see if a class is outside if a student is needed in the office.
