Often the job of a school administrator can get pretty busy at times. As much as I have a calendar on my computer, iPad and phone, there is still that chance that something gets missed.
Case in point today. I get a text from my OAA asking if there was a TOC in for the class that was going to We Day. That's when the 'oops' moment hit me. I had completely forgot that only the Grade 7's were attending and that ten Grade 6's would be left behind. No worries. No need to panic. Call in a TOC; I'd cover until someone arrives; even bring together with my morning reading group. Not a beat missed and everyone survived. I even met my son's classroom teacher after taking the time to drop off in the morning.
