Things To Do-while working remotely

Updated 3.29.20
THINGS TO DO:   (While on schoolwide closure)
Here is a list of suggestions to fill the void-get a jump on late spring/summer work, offer a distraction, or take a break from the remote learning:
  • Start the conversation about planning a Hall of Fame (if you don't have one)
  • Update Student Athlete Handbook
  • Update Coach Handbook
  • Catch up on evaluations of teacher/coaches
  • Handwrite a note of thanks to a new coach or booster parent, etc.
  • Update your directories and contact information database
  • Check in with coaches for moral and emotional support and to answer their questions
  • Reach out/check in with your Student Athletic Leadership Team members.  They may need you more than ever now.
  • Work on/update your After School Emergency Plan
  • Work on a new project that you are interested in (Captain's Club, Sportsmanship Summit, Leadership Team)
  • Update/change format of Pre-season Parent Meetings
