Dear Charlemagne families,
It came to my attention from PTO that parents have expressed a concern in regard to an increase in physical behavior at recess. Although this is mainly occurring at 1st and 2nd grade, there have been incidents at other grade levels too. This past week all school rules were re-taught by teachers and then followed up by a buddy presentation with an emphasis on hands/feet to self and good sportsmanship at recess. I met with our EA’s last Monday to problem solve and plan for a safer recess experience for our students. I am expecting to see more positive interactions and positive reinforcement from our supervision staff, more active supervision, and documentation when there is an incident so teachers, or I, can re-teach expectations when necessary. Attached are playground rules that you may go over with your student. If you are continuing to hear of issues at home, please email me so I can work on the situation. Your child’s safety and happiness at school is a top priority.
