Option B

Weekly Duties

Special thanks to all the duty teachers and your efforts to keep our spaces in the morning and afternoon safe! Please let me know if there is anything that we may need to adjust.

AM/PM Duties

The link above is for the duty safety net for both Bus and Recess.


  • You will find your name associated with a month.
  • This provides the associates with names of who they might touch base in case they need to find coverage.
  • Please review this doc and see where you are at and make note.


  • This is also a safety net for duties during the day.
  • Recess and Lunch (you are only needed in case of a lack of coverage)
  • Look over the doc and see where your name is. You are assigned a day, but you can switch these based on what might work best with your schedule among your grade level team.
  • If you have questions about this doc let me know.
