Intercom Response

Teachers, please have a brief conversation with students about campus expectations when the office calls into the classroom. The "beep, beep, beep" that sounds should signal students to be quiet so you, as the teacher, can hear and respond to the message. Students should not answer the message or respond to , but should stay silent so you can answer. It is also inappropriate for students to yell out their thoughts about the message.
