Classroom Guidelines

  • Each day we ask the employee's to be mindful of the energy they use.  We ask all employee's to do the following each night:

    • Turn off all computers, monitors, and printers.
    • Turn off any other items like calculators, coffee pots, and classroom/office lights before you leave each day.

    For longer holiday periods of time, we ask that employee's do the following before leaving for the holiday break, including:

    • All computers in the classroom are shutdown
    • All monitors are turned off
    • All computer and interactive whiteboard speakers are turned off
    • Printers are turned off
    • Television and DVD players are turned off/unplugged
    • All personal refrigerators are cleaned out, unplugged and propped open (place a tray under the freezer if ice build-up is present) *Remove personal food items rom staff lounge refrigerator.  Custodians have been instructed to unplug refrigerators and throw out any food items.
    • Other appliances (microwaves, coffee makers, etc.) are unplugged
    • Electric hole punchers, staplers, and pencil sharpeners are unplugged
    • All class pets must be taken home for the break (HVAC) will be programmed in the "off" mode)
    • Miscellaneous electrical devices are unplugged.  Also known as "vampire energy" these devices continuously draw electricity at all times.  Examples:  cell phone chargers, stereos, boom boxes, paper shredders, speakers, iPod chargers, video camera equipment and battery chargers, night light, and plug-in fragrance warmers.
