Wednesday Web Tool: Tips for Easing Stress During EOY!


This time of year, it can feel like EVERYTHING is a must do. Students are not exempt from the stress of the end of the year. This week we are sharing some strategies to help calm the end of year stress felt by students and staff.

Positive Notes

Give students sticky notes and have them write a positive affirmation for a classmate. Talk about growth mindset and discuss the efforts you have seen your students make this year.

Take a Brain Break

Preparing for Summer Upgrade




We are excited to say all schools will have cabling upgrades this summer! CNIC will be working at each site to pull 10 GB fiber from the MDF to all IDFs. 

Before you leave for the summer, each site needs to verify the MDF room and IDF closets are clear of obstructions.  We have noticed more sites using these spaces storage.  The CNIC installers must get to the racks and equipment as well as have enough room to set-up a ladder and work in the space.  All boxes, carts, and any other obstructions should be removed from those rooms/closets.  We recommend 4-5 feet of clearance around the rack.  

Use this form to verify the space is ready for the installers.
