Hello! Just a few quick updates for you as we are crusing through September!

Job Sites/CBI – We just received our schedule from transportation and we will be working on putting groups together this week. We will begin going out into the community October 2. We will send your students schedule home with them. As you know, some job sites provided lunch last year. At this time, I do not know if that will be the same this year or not, we will let you know.

Phone calls/texts – Thank you so much to those of you who are texing us with your students’ absences. It is so helpful. Just a reminder, if you do need to speak with us, please leave a message. If we are unable to answer that means we are working with the students. Unless there is an emergency, please only call one time. Calling multiple times in a row will not allow us to respond any quicker. We will get back to you within 24 hours, but most likely, within the same day. If there is an emergency, please text the classroom phone when possible (we will see it faster).

Illness – There seems to be a little bug or maybe some allergies going around. Please keep students home if they are sick and we will mark them excused. Students are never penalized for missing school due to illness. Aside from the obvious signs of illness (fever, vomiting, etc.) if your student is too sick to complete classwork or attend a job site, they should stay home. If students are in school, they will be expected to participate in all the activities their peers are participating in.
