Notes from Malinda
As we get closer to the holidays, some students experience greater anxiety due to a myriad of home and school triggers. Be proactive in your response, watch for signs, and keep high levels of engagement. Keeping students engaged and active in learning will help students cope.
Classroom phones should be answered by an adult in the room. Please make sure this is communicated to your team, students, and all subs in the building.
