That being said...I have had to deny personal days due to lack of subs. We cannot put in for subs a day or two prior when we already have over 10 people out and expect it to be filled. So, if you plan to need personal days, put them in as soon as you know you will need them or you may not get them. This is especially true for Friday afternoons.
Subs WILL be put in for sick leave (doctor apt/sick self or family) regardless if they are filled or not. This is only for personal leave.

From Mrs. Villarreal
Teachers, Please remember that Mr. Gray’s Anger Management groups have been divided by grade, 3rd grade will meet at 9 a.m. and 4th grade at 2 p.m. in the commons area. If your student is behind in classwork, you may keep them until they are caught up with work.
The mentoring group will continue to meet on Wednesdays at 9 a.m. in the commons area.
This year I will be helping Mrs. Quesada with Dyslexia testing. Please understand if I can not get to see your students as soon as they sign up. I encourage you to continue being proactive with your students, model problem solving skills for them, recognize triggers to their negative behaviors, and be vigilant during recess and transition times. Lately, some of the “counseling” issues have been situations that could have been dealt with in class. I will try to keep the guidance lessons going as scheduled, but I may need to reschedule some as the year progresses. Thank you for understanding.
From Mrs. Cristan
Please review 504 accommodations. Contact parent of any changes additions/removals and then let me know.
When dealing with an incident that you believe will result in an office referral, please do not have students write statements in your class. We will request the students to write statements if necessary in the office.
- If you assist with questioning the students (we do appreciate you assisting us) and would like to communicate information that you gathered, please summarize on a Notice of Concern or email.
From Mrs. Hoover
Writing Benchmark 4th grade is October 22nd, accommodation pages will be sent out soon. Make sure to read and correct in a timely fashion. Come and talk to me if you have questions.
I am still working closely with HMH to fix the student/class issues. Hopefully, this will be corrected this week. I will keep you posted. The student id number is the username and either Hornets1 or Hornets! may work.
Interim assessment data is now available in DMAC for Math teachers.
Tutorial time & dates are due Friday. Remember this is your morning or afternoon tutorials.
