Just a reminder that refrigerators & microwaves will no longer be allowed in the individual classrooms. The only exception will be if there is a specific medical need and we will approve any issues of that nature through our office.
Additionally, floor lamps, desk lamps, Scentsy's, plug-ins, fans, space heaters, etc. will no longer be allowed in classrooms. Classroom doors are to be kept closed at all time & exterior doors must NOT be propped open at any time.
Use the Scott Elementary Energy Management Form request the use of an appliance in your classroom OR report any temperature concerns in your classroom. Even if I have previously approved your request to use an appliance, I would like a record of your request on this form.
We'll continue with the 17, 33, 50, 66, 83, 100 percentage goals for each week & the blog will be used to help to know where students should be. Here are several ways you can monitor AR in your classrooms thanks to Nikki Chick, Christiana Finch, Connie Jones & Jamie Garcia:
