Easing into a Normal Schedule
We are easing our way into a regular as regular can be bell schedule. M,T & F we will be on an 8 period day with advisory while W & TH will be Block Lunch days with no advisory.
Do not forget to add information in your sub folder for your duty location and your club responsibility.
Please remember teachers are to be on campus at 8:15 and the end of your day is 4:15 pm. If you will be later or need to leave earlier make sure you contact your PDAS person.
Each teacher needs to sign up for SIOP refresher training even if you have not had SIOP training.
Bell to Bell Instruction
We need to ensure we are utilizing all the time we can in the classrooms. It is too early to have students pack up with time left in the period. Also, you continue to do this now, students will always expect it and they will not want to work the last minutes of the period in the spring.
