Transitioning Students to Adulthood
Remember this is our winter break and be culturally sensitive to all of those who may celebrate a holiday different than yours or not celebrate anything at all.
We have one more week to go! Yeah! I hope each of you takes a chance to enjoy family, friends, relaxation and whatever you do to recharge yourself. Although we have some fun plan this week, it's still important to maintain structure and routine.
Have a great break!!!!
Food Service News
We will resume with staff lunches after the holiday break. We’re getting lots of requests for more potatoes! We will also provide a salad bar one day in January.
Students in all Food Service and Basic Cooking classes will be participating in a Cake War next week. Please feel free to stop by on Thursday and check out their amazing work.

Step Up Summer Jobs
We will have a representative from Step-Up Summer Jobs coming to Transition Plus on Tuesday, Jan 17. The Step-Up representative will share information on Summer Jobs with Team 3 from 12:20 -12:50 in room C183 (Tia) and with Team 2 from 12:50-1:20 in room C204 (Sue). Students must live in the city of Mpls to qualify for Step-Up.
The Step Up on-line application is now open. The deadline to apply is Friday, Feb 10. Go to http://stepupmpls.org/
Please send interested students only to the presentation, along with staff as appropriate. Please contact Trish with any questions on Step-Up Summer Jobs.
Due Process Corner
Recently I've been reminding a lot of people of (and sending them a link to) the DP Fast Facts. It had all of the info about meetings already on it, plus correcting IEPs, etc. I think it may be helpful to review briefly at a staff meeting, just so people see what's on it and remember that it's available. I get questions that can easily be answered by that document.
There have been several EdPlan changes.
Please make sure to read the EdPlan Message Board as it has several important/pertinant messages
We have been experiencing extremely high numbers of absences- here are some reminders:
We do not have substitutes for our ESP staff – so if you are out it leads us to pulling staff from other areas of the building or we go without in certain rooms.
We need to try to provide as much consistency for students as possible, especially in the next week prior to break.
If you are sick please stay home and work on getting yourself better to be present and ready to work. Drink plenty of fluids and get your rest.
Please remember to wash your hands often, especially during this cold and flu season.
