Using Tent Cards on Desks

Found in: routines & procedures; safety issues

Concern: for safety reasons, as well as instructional, it is imperative that teachers know exactly where students are every minute of the school day.

Problem: students leaving the classroom during the school day for various reasons (band lessons, choir, enrichment class, nurse, office, bathroom, absent, etc.)

Solution: Tent cards (tag board strips folded in half), labeled with specific destinations. The student sets a tent card on his/her desk before leaving the classroom.

Results: a glance at the desks can quickly let teachers, paraprofessionals, parent volunteers, or peers know the location of specific students. This is especially important during fire drills or calls from the office asking for a student.
