Message from the Boss...


No PLC's the week of October 15th.

ALL grades are to be uploaded and posted by 8:00 am Monday, October 15th.

Mrs. Connie will only have (1) day to print and adjust report cards, if needed.

I hope everyone has a restful and blessed weekend!

Love you,

Casey Hanna


Classified staff will be expected to work regular schedule on these days, regardless of the student dismissal time. In other words, if staff are paid for 8 hours, they will work 8 hours on these days. If staff typically leave at 4:00 p.m., they will leave at 4:00 p.m. on these days regardless of the early dismissal.


Field Trips have been opened up. There is a limit to the number of busses that can leave for the day, so dates are on a first come first serve basis. Here are a couple of guidelines:

**Field Trips need to be requested as normal. Please make sure the correct date format is used. For example, 01/01/2019. We need accurate counts for students and teachers. Please do not estimate. We need to be notified at least a week in advance of any changes to the number of riders.

**We are only able to provide five drivers per day. Once we have reached our limit for a particular day, field trips will be closed.

**Trips should be scheduled to leave no earlier than 8:30AM. ALL trips should return to the school before 2:00PM. These times will allow for potential traffic delays.

**Incidental fees (i.e. Entrance or admittance fees) for drivers will be be covered by the school or a receipt(s) from the driver to be reimbursed will be sent to the building principal for processing.

**If more buses are requested than are needed and a driver has already been scheduled for the trip, the school will be responsible for the pay of the extra driver.

**Teachers/Sponsors are responsible for the behavior of the students while on the trip. Students and staff need to remain seated while the bus is moving.

**Teachers/Sponsors need to check the bus at the end of the trip to make sure their students have not left personal items, such as backpacks, instruments, cell phones, or trash on the bus.
