Reminders/Announcements

We will have our fall lockdown drill on Wednesday, October 15 at 8:45 a.m. Please remind students of procedures on Tuesday morning during your morning meeting. Parents will receive an email blast to let them know of the planned drill. 4th and 5th grade teachers need to show the elementary lockdown video. The link is in the bottom of the Smore.


Our other fall drills- lockout, hold, and shelter will be Tuesday, October 22 at 8:30. Please review those procedures throughout the week to prepare.


The end of the 9 weeks is upon us! Please take some time to visit with your team this week about duty stations and ensure that everyone knows the procedures so we have a smooth transition. Staff with a morning duty please touch base with the person whose duty you are taking for a smooth morning transition as well. Duty station roster is attached below.


Also, please make sure that you are in contact with parents of students who are struggling before their report cards go home. I know you are working on scheduling conferences but just make sure parents aren't surprised when the report cards come home.
