Information from School Nurse about Influenza

posted Apr 4, 2018, 7:49 AM by Gail Marine

Kista Murray, Secondary School Nurse, has information about influenza to share with you. I have attached the handout that is being sent home with students. We have confirmed cases of influenza at Tripp. We have the custodian teams doing an extra cleaning of desks doorknobs, table and counters to help make sure we are as germ-free as possible. In the cafeteria, we have a sanitizer station next to the window the student drop off their trays to help prevent germs.Please do not hesitate to contact Krista Murray at Tripp or LAHS.  

Habits of Work Rubric

posted Apr 2, 2018, 9:41 AM by Gail Marine

Recently we reviewed our Habits of Work Rubric and realized that some students were confused when the second row on the left side of the rubric read "Behavior". This line is really talking about student responsibility in the classroom. With this in mind, we have changed this row to read "Responsibility" to provide clarity for the students. See attached rubric.

New Schedule at Tripp

When students return to school we will be using a new schedule. We are moving ten minutes from the end of the day to the break period. Break will move from five minutes long to 15 minutes long. This will give the students time to eat a nutritious snack and prepare for periods 3,4,5. All academic periods will remain at 70 minutes long. 

The cafeteria will also be serving yogurt smoothies at this time. We are calling their snacks Second Chance Breakfast. If a student did not eat breakfast they can purchase a yogurt smoothie. The full schedule is attached to this message. Advisors will have new schedule stickers for the students to place in the agenda books. Thank you for your support.
