Welcome back everyone! I hope you all had time to unwind, spend time with loved ones, and enjoy San Diego’s Fall weather 🍂. Now it’s time for us to transition back into our work routines. We have 43 instructional days between now and the end of Q3. Before you know it, it’ll be Thanksgiving and Winter Break. To prepare for the upcoming quarter, we will dedicate half of tomorrow to PD at Sweetwater Authority Water Treatment, and the remainder of the day to planning with your teams or planning independently. As you plan, keep in mind the goals you established at the beginning of the year. Next week I will have my calendar available in room 201 so that teachers can sign up for a Q2 observation. Have a great week!

Additional Information:

  • We love to use social media to showcase great things teachers are doing! Please take a moment and follow us on our social media accounts:

Technology Tips:

  • iPad location services: have been turned on for most devices! This was done during the set up in order to help us locate lost devices. Please make sure that you leave these location services on so that we can track the device in case it goes missing.
  •  If you notice that your students safari or web browser has a black bar at the top, this means that they are in privacy mode. This will stop their browsing history from being tracked. Please have a conversation with your students if you saw this happening.
  • MacBooks: please note that the new MacBooks are very fragile! The screens are easily cracked, so we highly recommend purchasing a cover or a case to keep your MacBook from being damaged. Please make sure that you are cautious to not close anything inside of the MacBook and to keep liquids away from the computer. According to the staff Acceptable Use Policy, teachers are responsible for any damage caused to the device. We highly recommend purchasing the $50 insurance; please see the attached Staff AUP for more information!
