Keeping Us On The Same Page and Best Practices ***Please remember that students should not be carrying laptops in the hallway. If you need help with having enough laptops for instruction, please see Jay and he will help with a plan. Remember that we have two computer carts in the media center. ***Teachers will have a schedule for Fridayâ€™s events by Thursday afternoon. Please make sure to go over the schedule with students so they will know what to expect for Career Day and the PBIS celebration. ***Faye received information from the Central Office concerning the procedure for leave requests. She sent everyone an email with details. The bottom line is that leave requests must be completed electronically from now on. Please see Faye if you have any questions. ***Please remember to send a copy of team notes to the Admin Team. If one of us does not answer questions within 2-3 days, please check to make sure we received your notes.
