Early Release Agendas

Please remember to have your early release agendas completed by each Wednesday.

Intruder/Lockdown Procedures

Here is a review of the lockdown procedures.

  • Check for any students in the hall near your room.
  • Lock doors and windows of your classroom.
  • Turn off lights
  • Hide in a location inside the classroom that is not visible from the hallway.
  • Do not let anyone in the classroom after you close your door.
  • Stay hidden and quiet until you hear the "all clear".

Before School Duties

  • Please be in your designated duty spot at 8:08 a.m. so when students are released all students are safe.
  • Please be in your classrooms by 8:08 a.m. so when students arrive you are there to greet them.


  • Should you have an appointment that comes up during the school day as an emergency, we can provide coverage as long as you arrive by 9 a.m. and as long as you do not leave before 3 pm. Please try to keep these days to a minimum as we are using our aides for instructional purposes in classrooms this year.
