So, Sometimes You Get Sick

Thank you to everyone who kept the ship running this week. I was not planing on being out at all this week....and here it is the entire week. This flu is no joke! Stay healthy, wash hands, sanitize everything you can, and be proactive about staying healthy. I appreciate everyone who checked in on me, it has been a long week quarantined in my bedroom. I'm ready to get back to Lincoln.

CASE 21

Thank you to all for your flexibility this week as we tested the students (again) using CASE 21. Leigh Anne appreciated your ability to "roll with it" as things changed mid test this week. Michael Hubbard will be meeting with tested grades in the coming weeks during our PLC time to review the data and understand how to read the CASE 21 data to help us continue to support growth from our students.

Clubs Sign Up

The sign up form is now ready in the CLUBS 2019-2020 folder in our Lincoln Drive. Sorry for the delay in getting that to you. If we can get that filled in by Wednesday next week we should be OK before we have our first January Club.

Congratulations To Pattie Seabolt

I'm thrilled to announce that by an overwhelming margin Pattie Seabolt will be Lincoln's Teacher Of The Year nominee! Congratulations Pattie!

Other Things Of Note

ADDITIONAL TIDBITS

  • Safe Schools Online Training--The week of break we all received an email from SafeSchools regarding two trainings that need to be completed by the end of January. They are very easy to complete and fast. For both, it will take about 30 minutes. If you have not already done so, please complete these sometime this week. Please check your email for the quick link to these trainings.
  • KCS will be entering into a contract with an outside agency to recruit, train, and fill substitute positions. Our office staff will no longer do this. The agency believes they can (overtime) help us reach a 90% fill rate! Our current subs will still be available, and there are many benefits to this partnership. More details to come soon (as I know more I will share more), just wanted you to be aware there is change on the horizon!
  • If you need to request off for a day, please always enter that into Skyward prior to the day off. Even if you email me to let you know you are asking for the day off, it must be in Skyward. I use the record in Skyward to determine coverage, how many people are out, and whether or not we need to limit the number of requests for the day.
  • Please remember, we will need to limit field trips as much as possible in February due to sub needs, medical needs, and transportation needs during what is often the peak of the flu season.
