Report to a Staff Member with a Walkie Talkie outside. If you are in the Carson Room, escort students outside using the lower hallway back exit, past the gym. What if a student presents with a medical situation in my care? Ask the nearest staff member to use the intercom to notify the Office and

Health Room. If possible, escort the child to the Health Room. If not, remain with them, encourage a staff member to join you to assist with further communication. Student Behavior What if a student is having difficulty following directions or the school expectations? Give a general message of praise to the entire group on how students are following directions. Then, if needed, give a general message to the entire group reminding them what you expect. Notify their teacher of any difficulty so they can follow-up and reaffirm the expectations.

What are the guidelines for computer use when students are working on the internet? Students should work with the applications or websites their teachers have directed/modeled. These apps were researched and deemed appropriate. Students should not be browsing on the internet while working with technology as a tool in the classroom. Communication with Staff Where could I go to share an idea on how to further support students, parents, and/or staff? Touch base with the staff member you partner with most often. Also question who might be an expert in the area of your inspiration.

Feel free to talk with Mrs. Strong, Ms. Beaman, or Ms. Mariah Tavary, our PTA President, we are always looking for new ideas!
