Staff Information

Staff Quicklinks:


  1. The 2nd floor CSC restroom has been designated for staff use only.
  2. In preparation for the Judith Altman virtual presentation on Fri, 3/31 periods 8-9, I am sharing this spreadsheet with you. Please keep in mind this is a live document and it may be updated. Tab 1 has teacher assignments for supervision. Tab 2 has student individual room assignments based on their 8th period class. HS students will remain in this location for both periods. The MS will be switching rooms so we will have a short break during passing. If you teach a mixed class, please let your student know where they are to report to.

  3. The staff "lunch" sign-in out books are located in the HS main office and Mrs. Ianello's office for PE staff.

Students are choosing to wear their IDs around their neck, by their waist or on their bookbag. If you choose to wear it on your bookbag, please remember to take it with you when you leave the restroom. If your ID card is not visible when you enter the building, staff will ask students to show us their ID card. If you forget your ID card at home on any given day, please stop by the main office and see Mrs. Oddo. She will issue you a temporary ID (lanyard or sticker). If you take the temporary ID on the lanyard, you will be asked to leave a personal item. This item will be returned to you when you return the pass at the end of the day. If it is not visible, you will need to show your ID card to gain entry into the building.
