CPR class is Saturday!


Tomorrow, January 30, we will be providing all non-CPR certified ROCK staff the opportunity to take a CPR and First Aid class. You will be paid for your attendance, as well as receiving this important certification. Please make plans to attend. We have counted 28 of you that do not hold this certification. Even though your CPR cards say that you are certified for 2 years from the date of your last class, RISD requires ANNUAL certification so that we are more prepared to handle any emergency situations that may arise. A list of folks needing CPR training according to our records was sent to the Site Coordinators earlier this week. Please check with your SC if you're unsure of whether to attend or not.


When: Saturday, January 30, 2016

Where: Room 800 at Central Administration Building 1050 Williamson St. Rockwall, TX 75087

Time: Begins promptly at 8:30 a.m. and will finish at approximately 12:00 noon.

URGENT REQUEST: One of our Rock instructional Assistants, is in need of a room to rent. If you have an extra bedroom that you are interested in renting out, please let me know.

CAFETERIA MONITOR: Several campuses have a position known as a cafeteria monitor where you work from approximately 11:00-1:00 each day supervising students at lunch and/or recess. If you are interested in working daily or part-time or as a sub for this position, please let me know ASAP.

STAFF ABSENCES: It's the time of the year when we are having a lot of staff absences due to illness. We realize that illnesses can not be prevented or scheduled. However, if you are requesting a day off that is not due to illness, please give us a 72 hour notice at the minimum so we can request an AESOP sub to take your place.

ROCK PLUS - Please let Jeanette know if you are interested in working ROCK Plus on February 15 and/or March 7 -11. We will be needing staff who can work a morning shift, afternoon shift, mid-shift and subs.

STAFF UPDATES: Today is Moriah Grossman's last day to work as an Instructional Assistant at Shannon. She will remain with ROCK on a sub status only as she is going to nursing school. Please wish her well. Our condolences are also expressed to Gaby Yanez in the death of her grandfather two weeks ago. Please keep her family in your thoughts and prayers.
