LOSIT is the Loss of Significant Instructional Time that occurs when a student is tardy 15 minutes or more in the morning or leaves school more than 15 minutes before the end of the school day. Students providing documentation of a medical appointments are not subject to the LOSIT intervention.
Students arriving after 8:05 each day will makeup missed instructional activities for 15 minutes during recess on the day of the LOSIT. Students leaving before 2:35 will makeup missed instructional activities for 15 minutes during recess on the following day. Teachers will supervise students as they sit out for at recess for 15 minutes to complete missed work. Please click on the hyperlink for more information regarding our RtI process for attendance.
The classroom teacher calls and/or emails parents when there has been 2-3 tardies or absences. Then, Tier 2 interventions begin to occur. We will go over this with each team. Please read the attached document and prepare any questions, concerns, or comments you may have.
Wendy will be using color-coded passes to notify you whether or not the LOSIT was coded as medical.
CHAMPS in the Cafeteria
- Stay seated until your table is called to line up.
- Get water on the way to your table.
- Go to the restroom before coming to the cafeteria.
Our monitors have noticed when students are getting up to go to the restroom or to get water, the temptation to run, play tag, or wander around the cafeteria increases. Safety is key. Students eating and being mobile leads to a less safe environment. We will let you know if your grade level warrants extra support from teachers on your team during lunch. Our goal is for you to enjoy lunch with your team, but we will go to the shared lunch duty schedule if behaviors don't improve.
