Panther Notes

Week of April 27- May 1

Securing Substitutes

Please make sure that every effort is made to be present during this time of year, especially with so much instructional time already missed due to weather.

If you have to be absent, work to secure a substitute as soon as possible so your colleagues will not have to cover classes. This past Friday we had 3 classrooms that had to be covered by staff. We want to avoid having to remove staff from their responsibilities to cover classes.

Thank you in advance for your attention to this matter.
