North Courts- With Special Permission Only

Good morning Crocker,

 

Please know that the North Courts remain off limits unless given specific permission. There are times when Crocker staff will decide to give student or students some space and let them quietly sit or play in this area. However, there are classes taking place in the portables and when large groups play, we are too loud.

 

Thank you for your cooperation and please let me know if you have concerns or questions.

 

Have a great day!

 

Ms. Felt J

Emergency Drill and Fire Alarm

Good morning Crocker!

 

Hope you had a great weekend!

 

Thank you for a well behaved emergency fire drill on April 20th.

 

Please know that your safety is our top priority.

 

In case you are wondering about the fire alarm functionality, Mr. Ron Russo, HCSD Director of Maintenance sent me the following feedback:

 

The fire alarm system is NOT broken.

 

All devices that are connected to the fire alarm are still active and monitoring the school at all times.

 

The only fire alarm pull that is not working is in the office.

 

Daily, we are conducting hourly checks and a fire watch log to make sure the front office is safe until the alarm pull is repaired.  

 

All other locations are either smoke sensors or heat sensors.

 

The fire department will show if any of the devices are activated.

 

We are doing our best to repair the broken pull in the main office and appreciate your inquiry and concern for everyone’s safety.

You can sign up on the Community Service bulletin board to clean up an area on the Crocker campus during 4th period, if your 4th period teacher allows you to! Choose one of these 4 areas on any Crocker Clean Up WEDNESDAYS, and report to that area.

- Blue and Gold picnic table area and ramp

- Around MPR exterior

- Portable classrooms

- Outside Art Room/daffodil area and stair area

Trashbags and gloves will be provided by Mr. Calderon. You can even wear your earbuds and listen to your music while keeping Crocker beautiful!

Sign up for any Wednesday FLEX, between now and May 30! Check out the posters around Crocker about this opportunity, or sign up on the C. S. bulletin board outside Ms. Slater's office. Again, make sure to LOG those hours online as DOUBLE hours for these events only!

Skyler will be announcing this on HTV this week! See Skyler Perettie for more info!
