    **IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING MEETINGS/WORKSHOPS, ETC.. If you do not personally request a sub for those that you are scheduled to attend you will not have one.  I also ask that you would please provide me with the dates, times and schedules for any already known needs as soon as possible. Please do not depend on team leaders or grade level chairs to request multiple substitutes as not everyone slated to attend does so.
     
    Thank you
