Jury Duty for Mrs. Gurley
As you know, one of our civic duties is serving on jury duty when we are called. My turn is here. I did meet with the judge and ask to be postponed until summer. I explained my feeling of wanting to be in the classroom each day. The judge, however, decided that I could serve my time right now. The trial is scheduled to last 27 days. I will be at the Vista courthouse Monday through Thursday. I will be at work every Friday until the trial is finished. I am hoping the trial finishes earlier than anticipated or that the two parties settle quickly. Either way, I will become more knowledgable about our court system!
Hayley Simpson will be my substitute. She has been in my classroom several times this year and I am happy she willingly took on the job! I will be in daily communication with Hayley. I have told the students that they may still call me with homework questions or concerns. And again, I will be in class each Friday.
