Time Away from Campus Guidelines

Staff members may be granted permission to leave school for either thirty (30), sixty (60), or ninety
(90) minutes during the school day only through the use of a Golden Ticket.

Ms. Daggs must receive the Golden Ticket for Time Away From Campus at least 24 hours in
advance. Permission will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Once the daily quota is
reached, no further Golden Tickets will be accepted.

Staff members must sign out in the Sign-Out/Sign-In binder in Ms. Daggs’ office before leaving
campus and sign back in upon their return.

Staff members who must be absent from school for longer than ninety (90) minutes will be required to
enter an absence into TSSI for either a half day or a whole day, depending upon the length of the
absence.

Please note that there will be "blackout" days when Golden Tickets cannot be used. Leave for
any length of time on these days will require staff to enter an absence into TSSI for either a half day or
a whole day.

Golden Tickets may not be used to leave campus on the school day before a major
holiday (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Mardi Gras, Easter) or during the last two weeks of
the school year.

Golden Tickets cannot be used to leave campus on the days of PBIS rewards.

incredible amount of money.
There are many ideas out there that do not cost a thing.
Remember to rely on your community
businesses for donations.

Big Dog of the Week
Other
Staff
Incentives

As a way to show appreciation for all that the staff members do
and to increase the positive interaction among the staff,
administration recognizes staff members through the Big Dog
of the Week staff recognition program.

All staff members can nominate as many colleagues as they
want to each week for such reasons as:
 Having a positive attitude (even when things get really
tough!!)
 Radiating a true sense of joy in performing his/her duties.
 Showing a willingness to go above and beyond the call of
duty to assist both students and fellow staff members
 Serving as a "steady rock" for those who need it
 Serving as a role model for our students

Nomination forms are located near the Big Dog of the
Week box in the staff lounge.

Each Friday, one staff member's name will be pulled
from the nomination box. The Big Dog of the Week
will receive special treats, special recognition in the
newsletter and a special place on our Big Dog of the
Week bulletin board.
