Other stuff...

Roster Verification:

If you have difficulty accessing your Battelle account, please call Battelle at 1-800-780-1201. Battelle will help you reset passwords and/or usernames or reactivate your account. If needed, our District IRN number is 044842. This isn't something we can help you with. If you have specific questions regarding student start or withdrawal dates, please see Deb or Diane in the main office.

Work closely with your grade level colleagues, that is probably the easiest and most accurate way of completing this important task. If you work with an intervention specialist, be sure you are on the same page with percentages of time for instruction...everything has to add up to 100%.

This is all new to me. However, see me with your questions. If I don't have the answer, I will find it for you.

Packing and Moving:

  • Boxes and Tape will be available on Monday, May 2. Each staff member will receive 6 of the 280 boxes we currently have. If you do not need 6, please only take what you think you'll need. Additional boxes of a different size are on their way.

  • We will be getting labels in which to put our name and location of where the boxes are to be taken to the new building. We will use color-coded labels (green, blue & orange) to denote which floor your boxes will go. We can add room numbers as assignments are firmed up.

  • Take ALL personal items home with you over the summer.

AIR Testing:

Thanks to all for their patience and professionalism during AIR testing. Everyone did an outstanding job. Just another example of how Albion staff rocks it!

Last Weeks of School:

We have a number of activities scheduled for the remaining weeks of school. I included all that I am aware of under, "What's Happening at Albion." Please check your Staff Bulletin and email regularly to see if anything new has been added.
