Worker's Compensation

If you are injured at work, it is important that you complete the district's Employee Report of Incident form and submit it before the end of your work day. If your injury is such that you are unable to complete the report, your administrator or supervisor must do so by the end of the day.
The district will designate medical providers to be used in the administration of workers' compensation claims and treatment.

Texting Students & Parents? CAUTION!

Texting is a great way to communicate with our parents (and sometimes with students), but please be careful. Stick to education-related messages - nothing personal. And giving out your personal phone number can create problems. Last year, we had a parent who literally stalked a teacher. There are now apps that let teachers text-message students (and their parents) without exchanging actual telephone numbers. The one I'm most familiar with is a free one called Remind. Remind allows teachers to send messages by logging onto the Remind website, or by using the iPhone or Android app.

PTO is monitored on a regular basis. If an employee utilizes more than three (3) PTO days in a quarter which are not approved under FMLA, the employee may be asked to submit medical documentation regarding the additional absences.
