Use these forms when a student is in need of intervention from office or professional personnel. Print the forms out on two different colors of paper, and hang them at the door of each classroom where they may be needed (or taken out to the playground during recess). In an emergency a student or para-professional can rip a form and take it to the office. The objective of these forms are to communicate to the office as quickly as possible what is happening in your classroom (without you needing to use the phone or email, so that you can focus on the student in need).
If a student leaves your class without permission, the orange form can be used to alert the office as to the seriousness of the issue (sometimes our students just need time to process, and can wait for a few minutes if office staff is busy). It also lets the office know that there is an issue, and a more detailed report of the incident will be coming.
The red form is for an emergency in the classroom, and lets staff know the priority level. At times we ask students to leave the classroom to seek help from the counselor or principal, and they refuse, so this helps get them assistance quickly.
I've attached my forms to a clipboard with brads, so that they are permanently attached.
