Tomorrow's Children's Concert 

Bus information came Monday and short for Diana, so needed to ask for another.

How to communicate to teachers about appropriate device use.

Weather will be icky, so plan for that.

Dress up: Wear nice clothes.

Last reminder at each bus before leaving school. 

If students back at school: PE teachers, buddy classroom, homeroom teachers take care of it.

Concern: Student with Tourette's.  Always talking, and makes it worse.  Teacher will sit at back, so he would be taken out if he starts.
