Before and After School Duty

Thanks to everyone who has found coverage if they have been unable to cover their before or after school duty. Please be at your assigned spots each day. It is important to provide active supervision of students at all times!


If you need to be absent (unforeseen) please call or text my cell phone 816-506-7959 to let me know. Also, secure a substitute through Kelly Services.

Foreseen Absences-please complete a request of leave form and put it in my box. I can only approve a certain number per day-in order to make sure we have enough substitutes district wide. If you are requesting within 5 days you will need to provide the reason.
