Easing into a Normal Schedule

Hello Huffines!

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.

Sub Folders

Do not forget to add information in your sub folder for your duty location and your club responsibility.

Teacher Hours

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.

SIOP Refreshers

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.

If you have taken pictures please share them with us on twitter by using the #HuffinesMS or tagging @HuffinesMS

If you need anything or have any questions, please feel free to contact us. If you need me my cell phone number is 214-878-0477.
