Reminder: paper allocation begins January 3rd We need to allocate copies for the remainder of the school year. We went over the numbers Jason pulled from after Thanksgiving break and calculated that we will run out of paper if we continue our current rate of copying. SOLUTION: beginning on January 3rd, each teacher will be allocated 2,000 paper prints/copies per month through the end of the school year. We will reevaluate and recalculate our usage in the spring and seek feedback as we make plans for paper for 17-18. STRATEGIES: The data tell us that copy usage varies greatly. Since some of you will have instances when you need more paper and at times will require less, you can share and borrow from others. Teacher A needs 3500 copies one month, he/she can go to teacher B who only needs 500 copies and use their remaining 1,500 copies. Our 7 day numbers ranged from individuals needing 2 copies and individuals needing 2,000 in the 7 days. There should be plenty of allocation for those who need it. FAQs: Paper allocations will not carry over to the next month. One "month" will be defined in terms of copying or printing taking place in say, January instead of 30 day periods or calendar dates. Copies made in January count against your 2,000 for January, regardless of how many days we are in school for January. There are no prorated copy amounts. We will make sure there is ample paper in the copiers. Please reach out with any questions!
ASA Teachers, please remember to continue to walk your after school activity students out to the main entrance after ASA has ended. Thank you for keeping up with this, it is having a huge impact on student supervision. Please remind students they should be off campus by 3:45 on Mondays and Fridays and by 4:15 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays Please remind students to dress appropriately for the cold weather and bring coats if they want to go outside
With the colder temps arriving, please remind students that if they are allowed to come to your room at lunch, they need to come immediately after getting their lunch in the cafeteria. To prevent roaming, students will be not be able to leave the cafeteria during the middle of lunch. They should eat lunch and remain in your room until lunch is over.Please let us know if you have any questions.
