  • 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 remember to take a walkie with you before you go outside.
  • Please make sure that parents are aware that students (Rising 2nd - 6th grades) can use TenMarks during the summer. Also, make sure that your students know their password.
