Regarding Lunch and Recess Duty

During Recess Duty please make sure all posts are covered.  It is important we maintain 100% supervision coverage of our students.

As Lunch Rotation continues, please remember to be positioned at key locations i.e milk & lunch line.  Remember full supervision is expected for the entire time.  Make sure to get the students quiet using voice level 0 and dismiss by tables.


Detentions start this week.  Please note that every time you write a detention you must email the parent and student as well as cc’ myself.  You will then need to put the detention slip into Kathy Moore’s mailbox. The student is given the yellow copy and the white copy is the office copy.  They must be put in Kathy’s mailbox by 3:30pm that say, in order for the detention to be served the following day.  All behavioral detentions are served in the Art Room during MS Recess and Lunch (depending if it is a 30 min or 60 min). Tardy detentions are served in the morning.
